Applying for SSI can be a daunting task for some of our clients. This Street Smarts section is intended to give you pertinent information on the SSI program, including eligibility criteria and what the clients can expect when going through the application process. This information is primarily intended for clients who are 18 years and older and applying for SSI for the first time or for those clients who are about to turn 18.
HRC has a Benefits Specialist who is available to Counselors to provide assistance regarding the application process. Contact Cori Reifman at extension 4538 for assistance.
