How much will I receive in SSI benefits?

The amount of your SSI benefit depends on where you live. The basic SSI check is the same nationwide. However, many states add money to the basic check. Current information about SSI rates is available on the SSA’s website.

If a state provides a supplement which Social Security includes in the SSI check then your application for SSI in that state includes the state supplement. Following is a list of 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 other social services. For information about the services available in your community, call your local Department of Human Services.
