Foster Care Resources
Disabled or blind youth receiving Title IV-E federal foster care beneﬁts usually cannot become eligible for supplemental security income (SSI) until foster care payments have stopped. Eligibility for foster care payments in most States ends at age 18 attainment. SSA may accept an SSI application from a youth up to 90 days before his or her foster care eligibility will end due to age.
