Social Security Forms for Supplemental Security Income (SSI)

The base application form for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) disability benefits, whether the applicant is an adult or a child, is the SSA-8000-BK. Because the applications asks for a lot of detailed information, it can be very helpful to prepare a rough draft of this form to refer to when you file the application.

In addition to the base application, for adults complete the same medical and occupational forms as for a Social Security claim. These forms can be found in the Disability Application Forms section of this website. But, if you applying for a disabled child, complete the SSA-3881-BK instead. For a child’s claim, it can be helpful to offer additional information on the Function Report below that corresponds to the child’s age and to have the child’s teacher complete the SSA-5665-BK. And, of course, an SSA-827 is needed to allow Social Security to gather information.
