Supplemental Security Income (SSI) Benefits

SSI is a cash benefit paid by Social Security to people with limited income and resources who are blind, 65 or older, or have a disability. SSI benefits aren’t the same as Social Security retirement benefits. You may be able to get both SSI benefits and Social Security benefits at the same time if your Social Security benefit is less than the SSI benefit amount, due to a limited work history, a history of low-wage work, or both. If you’re eligible for SSI, you automatically qualify for Extra Help, and are usually eligible for Medicaid.

Note to Medicare Patients:
In addition to your application, you will need to submit documentation showing you have spent 3% of your annual household income on out-of-pocket prescription expenses for you and/or other members of your household for the year in which you are seeking assistance. Your pharmacy can provide this report.

For example – if your annual household income is $10,000, you would need to spend at least $300 on prescription expenses for you and/or other members of your household. Prescription expenses include your out-of-pocket expenses for any prescriptions filled beginning January 1st of the year you are seeking assistance.


This 3% out-of-pocket prescription expense is in addition to our other eligibility criteria, including financial eligibility. We may not be able to process your application until we receive documentation of these out-of-pocket prescription expenses.
