SSI stands for Supplemental Security Income. It’s a program by the United States government the Social Security Administration that pays you when you become disabled. It’s not based on how much you paid in like SSDI is. It is just based on whether or not you’re disabled and it’s essentially a welfare payment for people who do not have enough earnings or work credits to qualify for SSDI.
