What is Social Security Income (SSI)? And do RCFEs accept SSI residents?

SSI is a benefit paid to qualifying blind and/or disabled adults, or individuals 65+ years and older.  Some RCFEs accept residents who only receive SSI benefits.  RCFEs accepting residents who receive SSI can't charge more than the SSI facility rate set by the state of California for out-of-home care. To learn more about current SSI rates, eligibility, additional provisions, or to locate a local office click here.

To help you find San Diego facilities accepting SSI residents, look for the SSI box on the Facility Profile Page of each Choose Well volunteer facility.
