If we take into account that for United States citizens there are many types of help from Social Security, we can see that all of them have certain requirements. Knowing that these requirements are mandatory in many cases, meeting them to the best of our ability will help us to avoid problems of any kind.
When it comes to Supplemental Security Income benefits, the Social Security Administration imposes a number of mandatory conditions. These conditions may cause our check to be larger or smaller, or we may not be able to get it at all. For that reason, we must provide proof of our monthly wages.
And not only that, but also of any other monthly income that we have as American citizens. So don’t forget that in order to receive Supplemental Security Income without problems, it is necessary to report income to Social Security. And the Social Security Administration has announced the best way to do this.
The best way to report your wages to Social Security
In order to report these wages to Social Security we have three options available. These three options are fast, secure and streamline all subsequent processes. For that reason, the Administration reminds us that we must do so in order to receive Supplemental Security Income every month without any type of convenience.

What is the maximum check for Supplemental Security Income?
For individual cases, the maximum Supplemental Security Income benefit is $914 per month. This is not the case for couples, since if two married citizens receive this benefit together, the check could be up to $1,371. But this is in the case of getting the maximum check, something that is not available to all Americans.
Since there is no minimum Supplemental Security Income benefit, the minimum check can be any amount. Even so, it is essential to send in our earnings and wages if we want to get this benefit. We must never forget that we have to do this.
And remember that in order to get this Social Security benefit, two requirements must be met. The first one is to be 65 years old or have some kind of disability. The second of these requirements is to have low monthly income and low resources. At the end of the day, this benefit is only for the most needy.
