If you are curious as to how, you may do a name search with your appropriate state agency which is usually the office of the Secretary of State.

Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a federal program that helps individuals with disabilities and very low incomes pay for necessities, such as food and shelter. SSI is often confused with Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). The big difference between theses two programs is that SSDI is available to people with disabilities regardless of how much money they earn or have, while SSI places very strict limits on a recipient's income and assets. However, in most states, an SSI beneficiary also qualifies for Medicaid health coverage, which can be an extremely valuable benefit.
