The Social Security Administration now offers a free Supplemental Security Income (SSI) Mobile Wage Reporting Application. This convenient new tool allows recipients, their representative payee, or an individual whose income helps them meet their basic needs (like a parent or a spouse) to report wages using a smartphone. SSI is a needs-based program so the amount that recipients receive is determined partly by the income available to them. It is good practice for them to report wages on a monthly basis to prevent overpayment or underpayment by SSI. Recipients should contact their local social security office to see if they are eligible to use the app or visit the Social Security Administration website.
