Social Security Benefits – SSI Overview
Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a program that provides cash benefits to adults and
children who have disabilities, and who have financial need because of limited income and
resources. People over the age of 65 who do not have a disability, but who have limited
income and resources may also be able to receive SSI.
Expedited Reinstatement (EXR) is a safety net for people who return to work and later
lose their Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or Social Security Disability Insurance
(SSDI) benefits and payments. If cash payments ended because of work and earnings,
and a person stops working within 5 years of when benefits ended, Social Security may
be able to start benefits again.
