The Social Security Administration (SSA) is running a national and targeted campaign to reach people who may be eligible for the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program, including people facing barriers. They include people with low income, limited English proficiency, facing homelessness, or with mental illness.
SSI provides monthly payments to adults and children with a disability or blindness who have income and resources below specific financial limits. SSI payments are also made to people age 65 and older without disabilities who meet the financial qualifications.
On this page, you will find an up-to-date list of resources and materials that you can use to learn about the SSI program and help spread the word in your community. We encourage you to share these materials widely, through external and internal websites, social media, blogs, and newsletters.
SSI Basic Needs - NEW
The “Basic Needs” campaign highlights that SSI helps pay for things that many people take for granted, like rent, food, clothing, medicine, and other basic needs. It strives to reach people in their communities to tell them about SSI, if they might be eligible, and how to contact SSA online at ssa.gov/ssi or by phone to request an appointment to apply.
