S.2089 was introduced to the Senate on March 6, 2014 by Senator Brown and Senator Warren. This bill aims to bring SSI, or supplemental security income benefits, up to date. SSI benefits are paid to some of the most vulnerable Americans, including the elderly, disabled, and blind Americans, as well as 1.3 million children. SSI provides need-based support to more than eight million of our country’s poorest and most vulnerable citizens. Despite this, the amount of income one can earn and still be eligible for SSI has not gone up with inflation.
