    Answered . Please let us know if your SSI is based on disability, or based on age (over 65).

    Answered . Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a means-tested welfare program. Whether your benefits are from the SSI program or a state welfare program, and regardless of your age or disability, ALL income must be reported. Failure to do so is welfare fraud.
