Disability benefits for disabled adults and children who meet the income & asset requirement
Both adults and children may qualify for Supplemental Security (SSI) benefits if they are found disabled and their household size meets the income and asset requirements; like food stamps, Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits are need based. Similar to Social Security Disability (SSDI) benefits, the appeals and application process for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is very long and tedious. Most people are denied with the initial application and will need to attend an administrative law hearing before an administrative law judge to prove their disability.
The max amount of Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits an eligible individual can receive is adjusted each year with the Cost-of-Living-Adjustment (COLA) which is affected by inflation. For 2013, monthly Social Security Income (SSI) benefits were set at $710 per individual. As of January 1st, 2014, monthly Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits increased to $721. The amount of Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits an individual can receive is offset by the amount of household income.
