Supplemental Security Income - Calculation of Benefits

After receiving a Favorable Decision for SSI disability, you will receive a telephone call or letter from the local district office requesting information related to non-medical issues, i.e., financial data needed to determine the amount of your monthly benefits. If your resources exceed the allowable amount, you will not receive SSI. Generally, SSA will allow you to have a house, one automobile, furniture, appliances and clothing along with less than $2000.00 in other assets. If your back SSI benefits are for more than one year they will often be paid in three installments at six month intervals. Existence of emergency needs can result in release of additional funds.
