Supplemental Security Income.

A person does not have to ever work to get SSI benefits. The qualifications are that a person is disabled and virtually without assets. In other words, the person has to meet financial considerations, as well as prove that they are unable to perform substantial gainful activity. both pre-requisites must be met or the person does not qualify. The person could actually receive no benefits if they have too many assets, is married to someone who is employed or doesn't meet the medical requirements. All SSI recipients start out receiving the same cash benefit, but it can be reduced by having assets counted against them.
