Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.

SSI stands for supplemental security income and it is not a social security benefit. It is type of welfare for elderly with low income and asset, like Medicaid for instance. Because SSI is not social security benefit she can receive both, her SS benefits as well as SSI.
