Supplement Security Income (SSI) is a federal program administered by Social Security Administration.
It is intended for people who are not able to work, and therefore, can’t contribute to Social Security.
Help filing for SSI benefits
If an illness or injury has left you temporarily or permanently unable to work, you may be eligible for SSI benefits.
Conditions that may qualify you for SSI:
- Permanent disabilities.
- Long-term illnesses or conditions, such as diabetes, hepatitis, or HIV.
- Progressive diseases, such as cancer or organ failures.
- Ongoing, severe mental health conditions.
- Medical events, such as a stroke or a serious injury.
The process of filing for SSI benefits is complicated. Some people are eligible to file online, others are required to apply in person.
Have you been denied SSI benefits?
The Social Security Administration is a huge bureaucracy, with endless rules and regulations.
The first denial of your SSI claim is not the final decision.
It is your right to file an appeal.
You can file a Request for Reconsideration, or appeal, but there is a very limited time to get your paperwork filed.
Filing claims, collecting evidence, preparing your documents, and attending hearings can be very difficult to organize without the help of an SSI lawyer.
