Factors Affecting Your Benefits
Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits can vary greatly depending on the income and assets you have. Benefit payments are made around the 1 st of the month and are deposited into your bank account.
- The factors that can affect your payment include:
- Your spouse’s income
- The number of children under 18 living in the home
- Whether you receive Social Security Disability benefits as well
- Your living arrangement
- Any other money or resources available to you
You may also receive an additional sum from the state in which you live. In Pennsylvania, for instance, if you are entitled to any SSI benefits at all through Social Security, you will receive an additional $27.40 each month. You will also be eligible Medicaid benefits effective immediately at the time of your award.
