Pandemic-Related Disaster Assistance for SSI Recipients


Tuesday, September 21, 2021
2:00 P.M. to 3:00 P.M. EST


Cost: Free


Format: Webinar


Where: Online/Web-based


Sponsored By:

National Center on Law and Elder Rights (NCLER)

Description:

The Social Security Administration (SSA) recently changed their rules about how pandemic-related financial assistance can affect an individual’s eligibility for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or monthly SSI benefit amount. Previously, SSA had been counting many types of assistance as income and resources for SSI purposes, resulting in individuals having their SSI benefits reduced or suspended, or having their applications for SSI benefits denied. However, due to the severity of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, SSA has decided they will not count most types of pandemic-related financial assistance against SSI eligibility or benefit amount. This training will review the guidance issued by SSA on what types of financial assistance they now consider pandemic-related disaster assistance, what steps they will be taking to restore individuals’ SSI benefits, and what advocates can do to assist clients with contacting SSA to access or restore SSI benefits. Presenter: Kate Lang, Justice in Aging.
