What is Supplemental Security Income (SSI)? (And how do I get it!)

SSI is a cash assistance program for U.S. Citizens and some non-citizens who are age 65 or older, blind or disabled.  First the bad news, only those with limited resources can qualify.  The good news is that if you do qualify you will receive a monthly check and, in California at least, you automatically qualify for Medi-Cal and you may qualify for other benefits too like in-home supportive services.  If you think you might qualify apply at your local Social Security Administration Office.
