Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
Assistance for Michigan

Supplemental Security Income (SSI) pays a limited monthly income benefit regardless of your work history to individuals with limited income and assets.  Generally, if you qualify for SSI you also qualify for Medicaid. 

When you are approved for SSI you usually receive a lump sum cash benefit for the months Social Security finds that you were eligible for disability benefits but were waiting to receive their official approval.
