Supplemental Security Income is a monthly stipend administered by the Social Security Administration.
This Supplemental Social Security is typically designed to help elderly, blind, and disabled people. It comes from general tax revenue, not Social Security taxes, and is paid by the United States Government. SSI eligibility varies around specific income and asset levels.
