The SSI program makes cash assistance payments to people who are elderly, blind, or disabled (including children) who have limited income and resources. The Federal Government funds SSI from general tax revenues.
Additionally, after you achieve employment and your case with DORS is closed, you may be able to receive benefits planning through a Ticket to Work Partnership Plus Employment Network. Your counselor can assist you with connecting with these services.
Finally, you may also access benefits planning services through the Maryland Work Incentives Planning and Assistance Project (WIPA).
