Both adults and children with either a disability or blindness can receive Supplemental Security Income which Social Security provides. They receive this payment every month. It can be so if their income, as well as resources, does not meet the established amount. This SSI payment could also be for those who are already 65 or older. This group of people does not need to have a disability as long as they qualify for the financial requirements. Moreover, some people who are getting either retirement benefits or Social Security Disability Insurance might be eligible to obtain Supplemental Security Income too.
If you think you are in that situation and that you could get it, you can apply for it to Social Securityhere. It will only take up to 10 minutes and you or someone you know might benefit from it. Bear in mind that the amount goes up to $841 and it could make a difference in the lives of many. In just 17 days those who receive this SSI payment can enjoy it.
Besides, the amount for the SSI could go up to $1,261 for couples. Let’s not forget about those who are essential people or the people who are living with a person getting SSI. Those providing care will get their payments too. In this case, the amount reaches $421 on December 1, just like the previous beneficiaries.
Are you new to this Social Security payment?
It might be the case that you have not yet received a payment from Social Security. Or that you are about to get it. If so, you need to know that these payments are made monthly. It might be your next or even first payment on December 1 then. As it is on Thursday and it is not a holiday or the weekend, you will receive it on that exact day. There are some paydays on which it is on a Saturday, Sunday, or holiday. On these days, you will get your SSI on the last weekday which is right before the 1st of the following month.
This SSI is not funded by Social Security taxes, the money comes from a Federal income supplement program. It relies on general tax revenues instead. As you may wonder, it is set to support aged, disabled, and blind people. It is focused on those whose income is very low or non-existent.
It is a way to aid these disadvantaged people so that they can buy food, clothes, and a place to live in. If you would like to apply for the SSI, you may need to provide them with your name, SSN, when you were born, the address where they can contact you by letter, a phone number and the email is optional. Once you apply, they will arrange an appointment with you to sort everything out.
