Can I receive Social Security benefits and SSI?

You may be able to receive SSI in addition to monthly SSDI benefits if your SSDI benefit is low.

The amount of your SSI benefit depends on where you live. The basic SSI check is the same nationwide. Current information is available at www.ssa.gov.

Following is a list of all states that supplement the basic SSI amount with a link to more information about that state:

If you get SSI, you also may be able to get other help from your state or county. For example, you may be able to get Medicaid, food stamps or some other social services. For information about the services available in your community, call your local social services department.
