Are you married? Does your spouse have income?

SSI is Supplemental Security Income.  It is not a Social Security benefit and is not reported on a tax return.

If you receive Social Security Retirement/Disability/Survivors benefits those are reported on a Form SSA-1099.  That form you would receive from the Social Security Administration each January.  If the Social Security benefits are the only income of any kind to be reported on your tax return then there is no need to file a tax return.

A Verification of Non-filing Letter can be obtained from the IRS at this website - https://www.irs.gov/individuals/get-transcript

As previously stated on the message directly above your post -

My only income is SSI and I do not have to file the federal tax form.  Do I still have to file in Maryland?

No, if your only income is SSI you do not have to file a Maryland return. You do not need a letter of non-filing if you do not file.
