Supplemental Security Income, or SSI, is a federal program administered by the Social Security Administration. SSI benefits are available to low-income elderly, blind or disabled applicants who meet the eligibility requirements. Unlike recipients of Social Security disability benefits, an applicant may be entitled to receive SSI benefits regardless of past work history or lack of work history. As with most federal benefit programs, the application process can be complicated and time-consuming. A Michigan resident who wishes to check the status of her SSI application can do so easily by calling the Disability Determination Services office.
