Wondering whether you qualify for Supplemental Security Income? Here’s what you need to know about the income limit for SSI.
The Social Security Administration handles a variety of unique situations and assists people with a variety of needs. That being said, not every case is the same and there are several variations allowing you to qualify–including income and your income limit for SSI.
Supplemental Security Income (“SSI”) provides cash assistance payments to aged, blind, and disabled persons (including children) who have limited income and resources. If you are a Florida resident and eligible to receive Supplemental Security Income payments, you are also eligible for Medicaid. As long as you receive Supplemental Security Income, you do not have to file a separate application for Medicaid.
Keep in mind that while there are a few types of income, not everyone falls into the same category. According to the Social Security Administration, income is defined as any item an individual receives in cash or in-kind that can be used to meet his or her need for food or shelter. Income includes, for the purposes of SSI, the receipt of any item which can be applied, either directly or by sale or conversion, to meet basic needs of food or shelter.
