As I understand the above is for senior citizens living in usa - government sponsored health insurance.. please correct me if i am wrong.

does it apply to illegal immigrants, too? what about those who have just become permanent residents through their children's citizenship? i am trying to find out who actually qualify?

    Already plenty of info on the .gov websites.  What in particular did you find confusing about the information presented on those sites?

    There are many reasons, not just age, that a person may receive benefits.  

    Again, read those .gov websites.  They explain things pretty clear.  Let us know what in particular you find confusing.

    PS-SSI means "Supplemental Security Income" and is for those who never paid a dime into Social Security and they hop on "just off the boat".
