States may supplement the basic SSI benefits as explained in §2181. In addition, any State may make an agreement with us to administer its supplementation program. We would pay the State supplementary amounts along with the basic SSI benefits. Each month, we charge the State an administration fee for every State supplementary payment issued during that month.
For fiscal year 2006, the fee is $9.29 per payment. The rate will increase by the rate of increase in the Consumer Price Index each year.
