Supplemental Security Income (SSI) Basics

When: Wednesday, February 24, 2021, at 11:00-12:00 P.T./2:00-3:00 E.T.

Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a vital benefit for extremely low-income older adults or people with disabilities who cannot work enough to meet their basic needs. However, many people are unsure of the eligibility requirements and other rules governing the program, which prevents potential beneficiaries from obtaining benefits or causes others to unexpectedly lose them. This webinar will explain the benefits SSI provides, how SSI differs from other Social Security benefits, the eligibility requirements for the program, and strategies to prevent recipients from having their benefits reduced or terminated unnecessarily.

Participants will learn to:

  • Recognize and explain the difference between SSI and Social Security benefits;
  • Identify individuals likely to qualify for SSI; and
  • Assess potential obstacles to SSI eligibility.


  • Tracey Gronniger, Director of Economic Security, Justice in Aging
  • Trinh Phan, Senior Staff Attorney, Justice in Aging
