An attorney can help you get Supplemental Security Income

When you suffer from a mental or physical condition that makes it impossible to work, you may be able to receive Social Security Disability (SSD) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI). These benefits are there for those who need financial support following a disability.

The Social Security Act allows people who have paid enough into the Social Security system to seek Social Security Disability Insurance benefits if they suffer an injury that makes it impossible to work. For most, they may qualify for up to 100 percent of the total retirement benefits they would receive upon turning 65.

To receive SSI, a person has to show that he or she has a low household income and is also disabled. If those criteria are met, then the person may receive around $500 a month in additional benefits. As an added benefit, a person does not have to have a work history to obtain SSI from the Medicaid program.

When you're ready to apply for SSD or SSI, it's a good idea to work with your attorney. Many people are denied on their first applications, because they make mistakes or do not have enough evidence of their disabilities. An attorney familiar with the programs and requirements can help you file an appeal or put through your paperwork correctly the first time.

Our website has more information on SSI and SSD. If you're disabled, these programs are here to help you, so you can still live a normal life despite being unable to work a traditional job or over a certain number of hours.
