1. Application for Supplemental Security Income—20 CFR 416.207 and 416.305-416-335, Subpart C—0960-0229. The Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program provides aged, blind, and disabled individuals who have little or no income with funds for food, clothing, and shelter. Individuals complete Form SSA-8000 to apply for SSI. SSA uses the information from Form SSA-8000 and its electronic intranet counterpart, the Modernized SSI Claims Systems (MSSICS), to determine: (1) Whether SSI claimants meet all statutory and regulatory eligibility requirements; and (2) SSI payment amounts. The respondents are applicants for SSI.

The respondents are recipients of Social Security disability benefits.
