- In looking at what I wrote, MIL would only qualify for Supplemental Security Income SSI if she, too, met the criteria of being disabled which is not expected to be able to earn at least $1010 gross for a year or SGA - Substantial Gainful Activity. One applies for this at SSA.
- Medicaid is different in that it can cover adults who are not disabled, but of limited means. Rules for this coverage vary from state to state so one would go to local DSS to apply for this as well as other benefits.
