Supplemental Security Income (SSI) Program

Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a federal welfare program that pays monthly benefits to low-income people who are disabled, blind, or age 65 or older.  This article focuses on SSI for disabled and blind applicants. While SSI benefits are  administered by the Social Security Administration (SSA), which employs the same medical definition of disability as the Social Security disability program, SSI disability benefits are not paid out of the Social Security trust fund.
