If I get Supplemental Security Income, Can I get Social Security?
Posted in: Supplemental Security Income on July 29th, 2011

ssi payIt depends.  Generally speaking, most people who are receiving Supplemental Security Income can also get Social Security benefits provided that they are ages 62 or older and have paid into the system long enough.  A lot of whether or not you are additionally eligible for Social Security depends on the exact circumstances of you receiving Supplemental Security Income.  If you are an individual who has never worked due to an illness or permanent injury, then you are likely not eligible for Social Security because you have never paid into the system.

I’ve Worked, Now What?

For those who have spent time in the workforce and are now receiving Supplemental Security Income due to an inability to work and are above the retirement age, there is a chance that you could be eligible for Social Security benefits in addition to the Supplemental Security Income.  However, be aware that as a single individual your income cannot be greater than 2,000 dollars a month if you wish to remain eligible for Supplemental Security Income.  In the event that Social Security benefits put you over that threshold (or if you are married, the threshold is 3,000 dollars per month) then you will no longer be able to receive Supplemental Security Income payments.

In the event that you think you may be eligible for Social Security benefits in addition to Supplemental Security Income, be sure to contact the Social Security Administration.  You can reach them either through their website at www.ssa.gov, or by phone at 800-772-1213.  You can speak with a representative and figure out your specific circumstances from there.
