Supplemental Security Income guidelines are set by the federal government for all 50 states, according to social workers at the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center. Income may include your wages, Social Security benefit payments, and pensions. It also includes resources like real estate, bank accounts, cash, stocks and bonds, and food and shelter. Your total monthly income, and where you live, can help determine how much of this benefit you can receive.
Our clinical social workers are available to assist cancer patients undergoing treatment at the Kimmel Cancer Center with disability applications, loss of insurance, COBRA, disability discrimination, and other issues.
