How do resources affect getting SSI benefits?

Disabled individuals in New Jersey who meet the income requirements for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) under the Social Security Disability program are also required to meet certain requirements when it comes to resources they have available to them. Owning resources that go beyond a certain value can prevent the person from receiving SSI-related benefits. This is important to understand when applying for SSI benefits.

What are the requirements for Supplemental Security Income?

There are two programs offered by the Social Security Administration to help victims of injuries or illnesses in the United States who are unable to work - the Social Security Disability Insurance program, or SSDI and the Supplemental Security Income program, or SSI. While the Social Security Disability Insurance programs is paid for and handles victims who paid into the program through payroll taxes, Supplemental Security Income is geared towards Americans who did not pay into the SSDI program, are unable to work and who meet minimum income thresholds.
