This chapter discusses three important federal income maintenance programs for older persons: the Old-Age, Survivors, and Disability Insurance (OASDI) Program, or Social Security; the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) Program; and the Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP). For each program, beneficiaries/participants, eligibility criteria, financing mechanisms and issues, and reform proposals or need for improvement, are described and critically evaluated, with special attention to the Program's effect on and implications for people of color, women, and/or low-income older persons.

Keywords:   federal income maintenance, elderly, Social Security, Supplemental Security Income, Senior Community Service, social work practice
