Payments can also be received by children who are blind or disabled if their parents have little income.
Payments vary depending on the way the beneficiaries file their taxes: individually or jointly with their partner.
People called essential, who are those who live with the SSI beneficiary and provide them with the necessary care, can also receive this payment.
–Individual applicants they receive $914 a month.
–Eligible couples receive $1,371.
–Essential people receive $458 per month.
These amounts are established by the Social Security Administration. It is important to note that SSI beneficiaries receive 12 payments per year.
Due to the scheduling of holidays and weekends, some months have two payments while others have none.
That is why two payments are made in December, since January 1st is always a holiday.
The SSI program was created in 1974 to provide additional assistance to the most vulnerable members of society, including the elderly, blind, and disabled.
