Americans receiving additional Security Income can expect to receive another check on September 30. The first SSI payment in September is already sent, but there is one more this month. In 2022, the maximum federal SSI payment for an eligible person is $841 per month. SSI beneficiaries with an eligible spouse can receive up to $ 1,261 each month.
To apply for SSI benefits, you must provide basic information such as your name, date of birth, and social security number, as well as medical records if you are applying for disability benefits.
To qualify, individuals cannot have more than $ 2,000 in assets, while couples can have up to $3,000.
According to the SSA, approval takes three to five months, which means that most beneficiaries are eligible for a reimbursement retroactively from the date of the application. But remember that you have to be a pensioner if you want to get SSI. Use the BEST tool to be sure that you are eligible for this Social Security benefit.
