I am 80 years old and get only $688.00 for SSA per month. Am I eligible for SSI? If so, how much do I get the SSI? or can I go any SSA office to apply for it?

I was using Medicare Part D, Part B, and Part A successfully while I lived in NJ. I never paid a deductible out of pocket. I moved to Pa. to find myself being charged $150.00 the first year and the this year I am to pay $325.00 for the DEDUCTIBLE that I never recieved a letter about in NJ. Now, then, my question is, Am I missing something that I had in NJ that I didn't get or haven't been told about here in Pa? And, whats with the co-pays of $40.00 every time I go to the DR. I never payed that in NJ. Maybe the same "thing" that took care of those deductibles is the same thing that takes care of the co-pay, what say you?
