If your earning potential is limited, the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program may be able to help. The SSI program is a federal program run by the Social Security Administration. It provides financial help to children with disabilities, adults age 65 or older, and blind/disabled adults who have limited income and resources. Care providers may refer their patients to the SSI program, or individuals can refer themselves.
