SSI is a monthly Social Security disability benefit program that is strictly need-based, according to income and assets, and is funded by public taxes. SSI is a means-tested program; it has nothing to do with work history, but strictly with financial need. To meet SSI income requirements, you must have less than $2,000 in assets (or $3,000 for a couple) and a very limited income.
