2106. State Supplementation of Basic SSI Benefits

2106.1 Can states supplement basic SSI benefits?

States may supplement the basic SSI benefits as explained in §2181. In addition, any State may make an agreement with us to administer its supplementation program. We would pay the State supplementary amounts along with the basic SSI benefits. Each month, we charge the State an administration fee for every State supplementary payment issued during that month.

2106.2 What is the administration fee if a State asks SSA to administer its SSI supplementation program?

For fiscal year 2006, the fee is $9.29 per payment. The rate will increase by the rate of increase in the Consumer Price Index each year.
