Supplemental Security Income

Supplemental Security Income

SSI Claims

Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a federal program that pays monthly benefits to persons over age 65, blind or severely disabled adults and children who meet income eligibility requirements, and who have not necessarily paid into the system or have enough work credits. SSI is controlled by the Social Security Administration, but is financed by the general tax fund. For that reason, eligibility is based solely on financial need and disability.

Determining Eligibility

The SSI requirements for eligibility are based on financial need including your living arrangements and permanent disability. Financial need takes into account your resources (the value of your assets, e.g., cash savings, equity, real estate) and your income (the money you receive from wages, pensions, and other assistance programs).

The Social Security Administrationwill consider you permanently disabled if these requirements are met:

  • You cannot do the same work that you did before your injury
  • You are unable to adjust to different work due to your medical condition
  • Your disability is expected to continue for a year or longer or it is expected to lead to death

The primary datum that SSA uses to assess your claim is if, due to your medical condition, you are unable to work a full-time job and if not, why? Securing this evidence is essential to winning your claim. While the law permits individuals to file for SSI on their own, statistics show about 60% of claims are initially denied but, persons who hire the assistance of a Social Security disability advocate significantly improve their chances. We are particularly familiar with the laws that govern SSI and will actively assist in providing the proof needed to show to the SSA that you are truly unable to work a full-time job. From start to finish, we are here to help expedite your claim.
