Supplemental Security Income And Food Stamps
Posted in: Social Security Disability on October 27th, 2011

foodstampsMany people who are on Supplement Security Income often have trouble making ends meet. Supplement Security Income is the cousin program to Social Security Disability Insurance. Whereas Social Security Disability Insurance is designed for those who have spent at least a decade in the workforce, Supplement Security Income is geared more towards those who have never been able to earn a wage due to disabilities. The most common individuals who are on Supplement Security Income include the deaf and blind.

How Do Food Stamps Relate?

Recent studies done on the food stamps program have shown that nearly 21% of individuals who are currently receiving food stamps are also on Supplemental Security Income. An even more disturbing survey shows that many recipients of food stamps actually have no additional income outside of government programs. This shows that there is a direct need to provide more opportunities for low-income Americans, including the disabled, to take a more direct form of involvement in the workforce.

Many analysts are worried that the long-term cessation of productivity, when it comes to Americans who have been out of work for a long period of time, will have a dramatic and long-lasting effect on the economy. It is important that all forms of governmental assistance to those in need, including Supplement Security Income and the food stamp program, work together to ensure that more opportunities are made for those who had few to begin with. It is worth noting that, on average, individuals who were receiving food stamps had an income of roughly $700 a month. This situation must be rectified.
