SSI Beneficiaries

SSI stands for Supplemental Security Income. Persons qualifying for this benefit in North Dakota receive a maximum amount of $721 per month in 2014. Persons receiving SSI qualify for the state program Medicaid in North Dakota but are required to submit an application for this service with their local County Social Service office. SSI is an income based program and payments will be affected by any sort of income an individual may receive. A formula is involved with SSI that reduces the amount a person receives in benefits once they begin working. The following is an example of an individual receiving SSI and how working will impact their benefit amount.
