SSI, Supplemental Security Income, was originally the state welfare program. Social Security took over the administration of it in around 1982. It is not a benefit that is "inherited."

So, no, no one inherits it.

Seriously, though, you should ALWAYS contact the Social Security Administration to verify anything you have questions about regarding Social Security benefits. Here is the web address:
Social Security Online - The Official Website of the U.S. Social Security Administration

Or, you can call the toll free 800 number. 1-800-772-1213. Hours are 7-7 on weekdays.
