Stimulus Checks and SSI Benefits

Stimulus Checks will not change or affect SSI Benefits. 

The Social Security Administration has released the policies surrounding various forms of financial assistance that have been implemented since the coronavirus pandemic.

During this time the Social Security Administration stated that stimulus checks would not be considered income for SSI recipients for 12 months. The policy has changed to no end date for recipients.
