Supplemental Security Income
These annual fact sheets present data on the Social Security and Supplemental Security Income programs. Data are given for the number of people receiving benefits and the amount of total monthly payments made to persons in the United States, in each state, and in each congressional district within the state.
This annual report describes the SSI program and who receives benefits. The tables present data on such topics as recipient characteristics, disability and work incentives, applications, awards, and denials.
These monthly tables provide statistics for federally administered payments and awards under the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program.
Local area data for the Supplemental Security Income program for aged, blind, and disabled people are the focus of this annual statistical report. The data are for federal SSI payments and for federally administered state supplementation.
Information needed to administer the federal SSI program resides on SSA's Supplemental Security Record (SSR) file, which in December 2001 contained records for approximately 6.4 million individuals who received a federal SSI benefit for that month. The SSI Public-Use Microdata File contains an extract of data fields from the SSR and consists of a 5 percent random, representative sample of persons who received a federal SSI benefit in December 2001. This file contains approximately 320,000 records with 13 data fields on each record.
Blind or Disabled
This report presents data on all SSI disabled recipients who work, Section 1619 participants, and recipients who benefit from other work incentive programs.
The tables in this report provide a snapshot of selected program and demographic characteristics of children who receive Supplemental Security Income.
The Supplement includes more than 200 statistical tables that provide comprehensive data on Social Security and Supplemental Security Income. The data cover program details such as beneficiary counts, amounts of benefits, and the status of the trust funds. Most of the data are derived from SSA's administrative records. Narrative sections describe the programs' legislative history and program rules.
