How much do I get from my state supplemental payments (SSP)?

(1) The SSP is a payment from the state to certain SSI eligible people as described in WAC 388-474-0012.
(2) If you converted to the federal SSI program from state assistance in January 1974 because you were aged, blind, or disabled, and have remained continuously eligible for SSI since January 1974, the department calls you a grandfathered client. Social Security calls you a minimum income level (MIL) client.
A change in living situation, cost-of-living adjustment (COLA), or federal benefit rate (FBR) can affect a grandfathered MIL client. A grandfathered MIL client gets a federal SSI payment and a SSP payment, which totals the higher of one of the following:
(a) The state assistance standard set in December 1973, unless you lived in a medical institution at the time of conversion, plus the federal COLA since then; or
(b) The current payment standard.
(3) The monthly SSP rate standards for eligible persons under WAC 388-474-0012 and individuals residing in an institution are:
SSP eligible persons
Standard
Individual (aged 65 and older)
$40.00
 
Individual (blind as determined by SSA)
$40.00
 
Individual with an ineligible spouse
$40.00
 
Grandfathered (MIL)
Varies by individual based on federal requirements. Payments range between $0.54 and $199.77.
Medical institution
Monthly SSP Rate
Individual
$40.00
 
(4) We may adjust the SSP rate standards at the end of the calendar year to comply with WAC 388-478-0057.
