Frequently Asked Questions About SSI Benefits

What is the maximum SSI benefit?

The maximum Federal Supplemental Security Income (SSI) payment changes year to year. As of 2021, the monthly maximum amount SSI recipients can receive is $794 for a qualified individual and $1,191 for a qualified individual with a qualified spouse.

How do I apply for SSI benefits?

Applicants aged 18 and older can apply for SSI using your My Social Security account online or by visiting a local Social Security office, but many benefits are denied on the first try. Marken Law can fight for your benefits and apply for you, or appeal your denial. We don’t get paid unless you win!

How long does it take to get SSI benefits?

For Social Security disability benefits (SSDI) you must wait five months from the time you become disabled until you may be eligible for benefits. SSI has no waiting period requirement, but the application process can be difficult and many claims are denied on the first try. We can help appeal a denial, help you file your SSI or SSDI claim, and fight for your benefits. Contact us now to get started for free.

Are SSI benefits taxable?

SSI benefits are not taxable but you must report all sources of income and resources to the Social Security Administration if you receive SSI payments. SSI does not need to be reported as income to the IRS. 

The reason you must report your income to the SSA is so that they can monitor your eligibility to receive SSI benefits. If you exceed the income threshold you may stop receiving benefits.
