SSI - Supplemental Security Income Cash Assistance

The SSI program provides cash assistance to individuals who have limited income and resources and are either age 65 or older. Both State and Federal agencies administer SSI Supplements in New York.

Also, some States provide a special supplement for residential or home care if you live in a residential group home, live in a care home requiring supervision, or live in an assisted living facility.
