What are the
SSI Spotlights?

These spotlights give you detailed looks at some of the program rules found in the booklet, Understanding Supplemental Security Income (SSI).

They are handouts to help you when you apply for and receive SSI benefits.

Who may use the
SSI Spotlights?

We want the public to use the SSI Spotlights.

We encourage advocates to give them out to clients and to any other people or groups who can use them.

They provide more details than our general information pamphlets.


Caution!

The information in these spotlights is general. Do not apply the information to a specific case.

You must contact us for specific case information.
