A) SSI applicants who are experiencing extreme hardship qualify for emergency payments. If you qualify only for Social Security disability insurance (SSDI) benefits, you can’t receive emergency payments. According to Social Security Administration –

EXPEDITED PAYMENTS

  • We can start payments more quickly than usual in four different types of situations:
  • presumptive disability (PD) or presumptive blindness (PB) payment;
  • emergency advance payment;
  • immediate payment; and
  • expedited reinstatement cases.
  • PRESUMPTIVE DISABILITY OR BLINDNESS PAYMENTS

If your claim is for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits for disability or blindness, we may make presumptive disability (PD) or presumptive blindness (PB) payments for up to 6 months while you are waiting for the Disability Determination Services (DDS) to make a final decision. Our decision to grant PD or PB payments is based on the severity of your condition and the likelihood that your claim will be ultimately approved, and is not based on your financial need. https://www.ssa.gov/ssi/text-expedite-ussi.htm

Please contact your local Social Security Office and apply for emergency assistance.
