State Administered SSI Supplement Programs

Code: NL-1000.2400-800

State funded and administered programs that provide supplementary income for individuals who are age 65 and older, blind or have another disability and, in most cases, are receiving other forms of basic maintenance in situations where the authorizing agent considers the primary award to be inadequate. In many states, individuals must be receiving income through SSI in order to be eligible though in some jurisdictions, individuals receiving income from other sources such as Social Security or Veteran benefits or are eligible for SSI in all areas except for income also qualify.
