The Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program provides cash benefits to aged, blind, and disabled persons. SSI is administered by SSA. Monthly payments are based on need, as determined by the SSI standard considering available income and other
resources. Medical clients are not required to apply for SSI, but should be informed of the higher benefit amounts if it appears they may qualify.
