Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a government cash benefit that is available to those who are at least 18 years of age, have a disability, and own less than $2,000 in assets. In Illinois, the SSI amount can be up to $750 per month. This is a critical benefit for our clients with special needs. We encourage parents and guardians not to delay application for this benefit. We recommend applying on the 1st of the month after your loved one turns 18.
We assist our current clients with SSI applications as a part of their overall special needs plan. Our on-staff nurse will help review and assemble the documents and reports you will need to support your application. If you have questions about SSI, or would like our assistance in applying, please contact us.
