Qualifying for SSI

Pennsylvania residents who are elderly or living with disabilities sometimes struggle financially. For those who have very low incomes and few or no assets, the Supplemental Security Income program, also known as SSI, provides monthly cash payments that can help recipients meet their expenses. Those who receive SSI benefits may also automatically qualify for other social assistance programs.

How SSI differs from SSDI

If a Pennsylvania resident becomes disabled, there are two different types of insurance programs that may be available. One is Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), and the other is Supplemental Security Income (SSI). While both provide financial support for those who can't work for medical reasons, they have different purposes.
