Assembly Proposal to Substantially Increase SSI/SSP Grants Is Set for First Committee Hearing - California Budget & Policy Center

Assembly Bill 474 proposed and in committee to raise SSI/SSP payments back up after they dropped from the recession. The cuts were not meant to be permanent, but as you may know, they often become that way anyway. California is expected to have a budget surplus, so there are bills being written to allocate funds.

On top of this they are planning to start giving state earned income tax credits also and they just gave themselves a nice 3 % raise and increased medical benefits. We will be back to the poor house soon enough.

Which medical benefits did they increase? Most of the extra is going to education, though.

Oh so you feel you must lower the level of an interesting discussion down to political fights? No thank you; I won't bite.

People on SSI in California do not get SNAP benefits, the state supplement is given in lieu of it.

The State Prison budget is 12 billion dollars, I would much rather see money spent on the working poor than on building more prisons

it's true - " SSI/SSP Recipients: In the State of California, people who receive SSI/SSP are not eligible for CalFresh because the benefit amount already includes money for food. However, other people living in the household who do not receive SSI/SSP may be eligible to receive CalFresh(they must still have Social Security Numbers)."
