Reporting income when you are a SSI benefits recipient -- Part II

The previous post on this blog discussed the basics of wage reporting in matters related to Supplemental Security Income, of which many people in New Jersey are recipients. The purpose of wage reporting is to keep the Social Security Administration's SSI program transparent. The wage reporting system helps the SSA to determine adequate benefits for the needy.

Income-reporting for SSI benefits recipients -- Part I

Many New Jersey residents receive Supplemental Security Income, a federal assistance program run by the Social Security Administration. SSI is intended to help individuals who have extremely limited financial resources because of disabilities, age or blindness. Recipients are required to report earned income regularly to the SSA so that the payment program can adjust to both increases and decreases in recipients' income.

Role of organizations in Supplemental Security Income

How does the work incentive program affect NJ SSI recipients?

As many New Jersey residents know, the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program is run by the Social Security Administration (SSA) to provide financial help in the form of cash benefits to certain persons.

Supplemental Security Income for noncitizens, Part II

The previous post on this blog regarding Supplemental Security Income discussed the various requirements a noncitizen residing anywhere in the United States, including New Jersey, must meet to be eligible.

According to rules established by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, some of these foreign citizens are eligible to receive Supplemental Security Income through the Social Security Administration if they meet certain criteria.

Which documents are required for New Jersey SSI?

When a New Jersey resident wishes to apply for supplemental security income (SSI), certain documents must be produced at the time of application. The list provided by the Social Security Administration (SSA) is fairly long, but the individual applying for SSI benefits may be able to complete the application by supplying only some of the documentation requested. If required, the SSA provides assistance to potential SSI recipients in gathering the necessary documents.

How do you appeal the SSA's decision to deny SSI benefits?

Many New Jersey residents may know that it is possible to appeal a refusal of Social Security Disability benefits. It is also possible to appeal a negative decision made by the Social Security Administration regarding a Supplemental Security Income claim. An appeal process is comprised of several steps, with federal courts being the highest authority that will consider the claim.

SSI benefits, Medicaid and SNAP specific to New Jersey residents

Many New Jersey residents know that Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a federal program run by the Social Security Administration that provides monthly financial assistance to needy individuals and families. SSI benefits are meant for those above the age of 65 and for disabled people, irrespective of their age. To qualify for SSI benefits, a prospective beneficiary must prove that he or she does not have sufficient income and has limited resources.

Determining eligibility for Supplemental Security Income payments

When a New Jersey worker can no longer hold a job because of a disability, that person usually can apply for and receive Social Security Disability Insurance benefits. Sometimes, however, a disabled worker may also be eligible for other benefit programs.
