  • Have limited resources
  • Be considered medically disabled
  • Be a U.S. citizen or a legal alien who is a resident of U.S.
  • File an application

Is there a maximum amount of back payments the Social Security Administration will pay to an SSI recipient?

No, but SSA will limit amounts in increments that do not exceed 12 times the current Federal Benefit Rate (FBR).

Are benefits requirements different in each state?

No. The Federal Government mandates who qualifies for Supplemental Security Income benefits under Title XVI and who does not.
