No wonder. Wow she is the young to receive the SSI. I received my SSA when I was 15 but my mom was not let me use the money until I become 18. My dad passed away when I was 15. I changed to SSDAC now. I am still receive it every months. Because I don't have job. I have high income because of my dad's death and plus VA and good earn money from employees.

SSI? Not SSDI? Usually SSI is very limiting. SSDI is based on past work credit. So, you're only interested in SSI only?

Well- call me old school or whatever- but it seems I am guiltly saying SSI when I mean SSDI. It seems to be that we use these terms loosely and interchangebly

yes, it depends on how much your husband make (if you are married), how many children, the cost of living in your area, etc.

If you are not married, it also depend on who you share with roomates. They will ask if anyone living with you.

I think an individual get more SSI money if they are living by themselves <---- which if someone live with you or not, you will still be in the same position, so it isn't like "oh boy, if she leave, I could get richer!" I think it is the opposite. People who live with you who help pay the bill make life more affordable, even if the gov't cut your SSI half,than you living by yourself with full SSI

I think some don't understand thier payments or arefibbing abit as the highest payout is florida and california which is just under 900. \ SSI is not related to Social Security(SSA)...it is Supplemental Security Income....administered by Social Security.
Unsure of SSI in Hawaii or Alaska asare expensive but 27 % are not recieving 1500 permonth from SSI.
The basic rate is like 660 but some states, very few..pay out more cuz cost of living.It is state money added included into the SSI payment.
California...@662 plus Cali adds @220.....@882. And this is the larger payout.
Your poll is listing SSA disability payments....SSDI...from work credits of prior 10 years at time of claim.
SSI does not go that high.....many states only pay 660....or less if you don't pay rent.

No they are not the same at all. People do get them confused. SSI less and more rules about living situations. SSDI not affected by lviving with others etc.
but SSI just enough to scrape by. Usually you are broke the last week. And hopefully have your foods put away. Some don't have management and spend it in one day. Or are in debt and pay there tab on payday and broke again.
They have conservators for mental people who can't manage thier money...but they actually take a small cut I think.

however many dont realize to get SSD, you need to have worked into the system for 10 years or more. Otherwise you will need to go on SSI.

BTW: Pretty much all of the government information is publicized, including the IRS records. Your IRS information is available to the public, so it's not "nobody's business" as you put it. Think about that for a bit

Hey, it's my opinion that it's nobody's business. I wouldn't make it easy for people to know what my income is by posting it on a BBS.

I'm surprised that SSDI or whatever it's called; rules seems to vary from state to state.

I would have thought if the SSDI, SSI and others are paid by Federal govt then the rules should be the same all over the country.

I understand the income will vary based on state's cost of living.

It is the same all across the nation, however the state can add to it from their funds. California is a good example of this.

Is "deafness" a disability?

Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) Q&A

"What is the difference between Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI)?
The medical requirements for disability payments are the same under both Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) programs, and the same process is used for both programs to determine your client's disability.

Supplemental Security Income is a program run by Social Security that pays monthly benefits to the elderly, the blind and people who have disabilities and very low income. If your client is receiving SSI, he/she will also most likely qualify for food stamps and Medicaid, too. While non-medical eligibility for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is based on prior work under Social Security, SSI disability payments are based on income and resource specifications."

The federal wouldn't know what the State's condition and what they need. Some states can be very cold and have to pay a lot of heating bill.It all depends on the cost of living in each states.

Speaking of that, is it true this is has no inflation rate? I've heard that they decided not to raise SSDI because of no rise of cost of living. People got letters in my state saying that.

No Cost of Living adjustments. Our COLA went down for 2009, so benefits stays the same.
