ssi and food stampsParticularly if you receive Supplemental Security Income, you might be facing the reality that your income is very, very low.  The current payment rate is set at around 650 dollars per month for individuals who receive SSI, so it can be challenging to make ends meet.  If you happen to be getting payments through Supplemental Security Income, be sure to check out these other programs that might be able to help you through your life.

What Programs?

If you get SSI, you might also be eligible for the program known today as SNAP, or Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program.  This program was also formerly known as food stamps.  Depending on the status of your household, you might be eligible for a certain amount of money dedicated to your nutritional needs every month.  For more information, check out the SNAP website.

When you get Supplemental Security Income, you are automatically eligible for Medicaid.  Depending on the state where you live, you may also be eligible for Medicare.  Sometimes your state might pay your Medicare premiums for you – so be sure to do the research on the laws and requirements in the state where you live.

You might be surprised at all the programs that are available to help you through your financial troubles if you are getting Supplemental Security Income.  It can be very challenging to make ends meet on such a low salary, but with the money from SSI and the other programs that can assist you with getting the benefits you need, you can make it work.
