Q: Who is eligible for Supplemental Security Income?
A: Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a federal benefits program that is paid for through federal taxes, rather than Social Security taxes. These benefits are typically provided to those who are unable to earn sufficient income to support independent living due to being aged, blind, or disabled. For a person to qualify, they must meet the Social Security Administration’s disability requirements and/or definitions.
