If you are 65 years or younger, legally blind, or disabled, and you do not have a lot of income, then you may be eligible to receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI). This is a means-based program run by the Social Security Administration and financed by the general tax fund. Since the program isn't financed by Social Security taxes, there are no work requirements necessary to qualify for SSI.

- The home you live in and the land it is on
- Life insurance policies valuing $1,500 or less
- Your car (usually)
- Burial plots for you and members of your immediate family
- Up to $1,500 in burial funds for you and up to $1,500 in burial funds for your spouse
