MORE MONEY For Social Security SSI, SSDI & Senior Recipients | SNAP EBT Food Stamp Benefits
Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a branch of Social Security that serves the most vulnerable individuals who are both disabled and part of a low-income household. To qualify, you must earn $1,350 per month or less — $2,260 for the blind. Here, too, receiving SSI does not disqualify you — but your benefits count as income when applying for SNAP. You’re free to collect food stamps as long as your SSI distributions don’t put you over the USDA’s SNAP income limits. The SSA’s site explicitly states, “If you receive SSI, you may be eligible to receive SNAP assistance to purchase food,” and that the SSA provides SNAP applications at local offices and can even help eligible households fill them out. Even so, the SSA states, “Many people who are potentially eligible for SSI benefits do not know how receiving SSI affects their benefits or payments from other government and state programs.”
