The Social Security Administration asked us to share the following:
Social Security is with you throughout life’s journey, and puts you in control with our online services. Now people applying for Social Security disability benefits online can apply for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) at the same time, without having to call or visit a Social Security office.
To take advantage of this online service, applicants must meet the following criteria.
- Between the ages of 18 and 65
- Never married
- Not blind
- A U.S. citizen residing in one of the fifty states, the District of Columbia, or the Northern Mariana Islands
- No prior application for or receipt of SSI benefits
We will evaluate the results of this online SSI service expansion to assess the possibility of further expansion. For more information, please see our Supplemental Security Income webpage.
Please share this information through your networks. Thank you for your support, and for helping Social Security secure today and tomorrow!
