Improve the Supplemental Security Income program
Congress has failed to update the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program for more than 30 years. As a result, millions of people with disabilities, including PH, live in poverty.
If enacted, the SSI Restoration Act would keep SSI beneficiaries from falling below the poverty line. It would simplify the claims process, expand resources and income limits, set the minimum benefit at 100% of the federal poverty level, and eliminate punitive reductions in benefits.
