    they don't need to qualify based on their assets or lack thereof.  SSA is not going to deny people for having cars and homes.

    and SSI/SSDI is exactly what you say:  extra protection for the most vulnerable.

      vulnerable" no matter how bad off they are.  In other words, it doesn't matter if their SS check is only $400 a month and they have no other income.

        among seniors, some are more economically vulnerable than others.  i'm really not sure what you're saying here.

        seniors on SS can get SSI if their low income makes them eligible.
