Basics of SSI Eligibility
Some specific eligibility requirements are below:
Like SSDI, SSI recipients must be disabled (incapable of engaging in any substantial gainful activity, or SGA). Even if your current job pays only a fraction of your former earnings, you are not eligible if you are still making money.
Because SSI is essentially a welfare program intended for people with very limited income, there are strict income-level eligibility requirements. A single person must not have more than $2,000 in assets per month, while a married couple cannot have more than $3,000 in assets, including the income from both spouses.
In SSI, you are permitted to exclude one home and one vehicle and other items of personal property.
No work requirement:
SSDI requires the recipient to have done a certain amount of work in the months prior to benefit collection, but SSI has no requirements on employment.
