Supplemental Security Income is a program which provides monthly payments to individuals with a disability who have income and resources below very specific limits. In 2023, an individual cannot earn more than $1,913 per month in wages or self-employment, $934 per month in income from pensions or gifts, and you cannot have resources of more than $2,000. A married couple cannot earn more than $2,827 in wages or self-employment, more than $1,391 in pension or gifts, and cannot have more than $3,000 in resources. Resources include: cash, bank accounts, stocks, mutual funds, U.S. savings bonds, lang, vehicles, personal property, life insurance, and anything else that could be converted to cash and used for food or shelter. The home you live in, and one vehicle are not counted as resources. Additionally, you must be a resident of the 50 states, District of Columbia, or the Northern Mariana Islands.
