Tell Congress: Support the SSI Savings Penalty Elimination Act NOW!
The Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program provides critical support for millions of people with disabilities to be able to afford necessities like food and rent. But it has many rules that make it hard for people to save money and get out of poverty. SSI has an asset limit that has not been updated since 1989. Assets include money in bank accounts, retirement accounts, and savings. Asset limits of $2,000 (or $3,000 for married couples) mean that people cannot save money and force people with disabilities into poverty. Urge your U.S Senators to support people with disabilities and their families by cosponsoring the bipartisan SSI Savings Penalty Elimination Act (S.4102), which would raise these asset limits.
