If you are on SSI and live in California, you already know that the amount of your monthly check has been reduced. This reduction was caused by the state of California. The State has reduced the State Supplemental Payment. For more information, you may see my previous blog posts: California budget crisis may reduce state SSI supplement and Update on California budget crisis and SSI payments.
Apparently the Social Security Administration has become tired of people calling them and blaming them. They produced a fact sheet entitled, “Reduction of SSI Payments Effective May 1, 2009.” I obtained a copy of the fact sheet at the Walnut Creek field office.
