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 –


  • 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.

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.

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

  1. To apply for food stamp benefits, or for information about the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), contact your local SNAP office. You can find local offices and each State’s application on the USDA national map. Local offices are also listed in the State or local government pages of the telephone book. The office should be listed under “Food Stamps,” “Social Services,” “Human Services,” “Public Assistance,” or a similar title. You can also call your State’s SNAP hotline numbers. Most are toll-free numbers.

    Each State has its own application form. If your State’s form is not on the web yet, you’ll need to contact your local SNAP office to request one. Please don’t call USDA or HHS headquarters as only your State accepts applications and determines eligibility.
