SSI is a federal program that offers cash benefits to needy individuals who are aged (above 65), blind or disabled. Disabled in SSI parlance refers to a person being unable to work for the past 12 months due to mental or physical problem. A person qualifying for SSI must show that he or she is financially needy. Those who are in receipt of SSI are awarded Medicaid.

The SSI program is administered by the Social Security Administration (SSA). To file for SSI, you should contact the nearest Social Security district office. In case the application is denied, you have the right to file an appeal. You have 60 days from the date you receive the denial notice to appeal by contacting the nearest Social Security district office. The person filing for the SSI should show that he is financially needy. File within 60 days of the notice date to ensure that there are no issues regarding the appropriateness of the appeal. Show that your financial resources and assets are limited. You will have to show your income as well as that of your spouse. For additional information, contact your local Social Security Administration; call 1-800-772-1213 between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. However you cannot file online for SSI.

This 'answer' is NOT an answer at all to the question posted--it only tells you how to file for SSI benefits. The question asked how to report your SSI income on your tax return. This is the information I was looking for, so I hope someone else puts an appropriate response on here!
