Provides that any qualified alien rendered ineligible for SSI during fiscal years before FY 2006, soley by reason of the termination of a certain seven-year period, shall be eligible for such program for an additional two-year period, if the alien meets all other SSI eligibility factors. Requires benefits to be paid prospectively over the duration of the qualified alien's renewed eligibility.
