Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a cash assistance program funded and administered by the Federal Government. The program is authorized by Title XVI (Supplemental Security Income for the Aged, Blind, and Disabled) of the Social Security Act.
Beginning in January 1974, SSI replaced the Federal/State matching grant program of adult assistance to the aged, blind, and disabled. Under SSI, there is no minimum age limit for establishing eligibility based on blindness or disability.
This is not what your 70 something folks are receiving…
Their social security income should not be limited by any earnings that you pay them, as this shouldn’t be any different than them owning a stock or bond, really. I haven’t been able to locate the perameters of this yet, and have to leave for an appt, but will attempt to do so later.
Hope this little bit of info helps…
