Other Sources of Financial Assistance/Income

Federal Work-Study Program

Any money you earn from the Federal Work-Study program (explained earlier) or any other employment may affect your SSI benefits. If you receive SSI, be sure you understand how much you can earn at a part-time job before you begin working. You will have to pay back money if you go over your approved benefit.

Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a federal program that provides financial assistance to deaf and hard of hearing students who have little or no income and resources. The amount of the SSI payment is dependent on your income and resources. If you are under 18, some of your parents' income and resources may be included in figuring your potential payment.

The Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) program allows workers and eligible dependents to receive monthly cash benefits because of a period of disability. If you have been employed for a specific number of years and are going back to college, you may receive this benefit based on your work record.
