Supplemental Security Income
Authored By: Social Security Administration
SSI is short for Supplemental Security Income. It pays monthly benefits to people who are 65 or older, or who are blind, or who have a disability and don't own much or have a lot of income. Monthly benefits can go to disabled and blind children as well as adults. Read more about SSI in this booklet from the Social Security Administration web site.
