By March 16, 2017NCLER, WEBINAR

When: Tuesday, April 11 at 11:00 a.m. PT / 2:00 p.m. ET.

Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a critical safety net program administered by the Social Security Administration that provides a very basic income to older adults and people with disabilities with no or only limited other income and resources. This webinar is designed for legal services and other advocates who are just getting started in the field and others who want to learn more about the essentials of the program.

This webinar covers the basic rules surrounding the SSI program, which provides modest financial support to older adults and people with disabilities who lack other resources. We describe the program and discuss the basic rules of eligibility, how benefits are calculated, and provide suggestions on where to go if you need further information.

For more information on SSI, read Justice in Aging’s Fact Sheet on the program.

Trinh Phan, Senior Staff Attorney, Justice in Aging
Jenny Chung Mejia, Senior Staff Attorney, Justice in Aging
