Supplemental Security Income applications now online

woman sitting on a laptopWe’re always looking for ways to provide you with innovative, quality services, and with our newest online enhancement, we’re proud to be doing just that. Now, if you meet certain requirements, you can file Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and disability applications online at the same time.

You can apply online if you:

  • Are between the ages of 18 and 65;
  • Have never been married;
  • Aren’t blind;
  • Are a U.S. citizen residing in one of the fifty states, District of Columbia, or the Northern Mariana Islands; and
  • Haven’t applied for or received disability or SSI benefits in the past.

If you started another application online before April 1, but haven’t submitted it, you can take advantage of this new service option and submit a disability and SSI application together.

With this update, we are expanding service to customers with limited English proficiency by allowing them to request an appointment online for an in-person claim or teleclaim in the language of their choice.  As we provide this new service in many languages, including Spanish, we are discontinuing the separate Spanish language iClaim option.  Applicants who started and saved an iClaim in Spanish can still enter the portal and complete it for up to six months after the claim start date.

With disability, and now SSI, benefit applications online, we’re providing easier and more convenient services to support you through life’s journey.

  3. I have other health issues, can I add them to my SSI payment. Also why cant I get married, if my husband has his own income

    • Hi, Letitia. Supplemental Security Income (SSI), is a needs-based program that pays benefits to disabled adults and children who have limited income and resources. The amount of a person’s SSI benefit is based, in part, on the income available to them and their spouse. You can find more information on the SSI program here. If you have specific questions about SSI, you can call 1-800-772-1213, Monday through Friday between 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. and ask a representative to assist you, or you can contact your local office to discuss how marriage affects SSI benefits. Thanks!

  4. I am a 72 year old post polio syndrome individual. I applied for and received SSI benefits when I applied some years ago for disability. When I reached 65 the Disability Benefit became my Social Security Benefit. My Post Polio Syndrome-
