The SSI program, authorized under Title XVI of the Social Security Act and often called Title16 or T16 benefits, makes cash assistance payments to aged, blind and disabled persons, including children, who have limited income and resources. The Federal government funds SSI from general tax revenues. Many states pay a supplemental benefit to persons in addition to their Federal SSI benefit. Most adults aged 18 through 64 who receive SSI benefits are eligible to participate in the Ticket to Work program.
