Remember these facts when seeking Supplemental Security Income

When you are on disability benefits, one thing that can help boost your income is Supplemental Security Income (SSI). The SSI program is there to help children and adults with disabilities who have limited access to resources and income.

To obtain Social Security Disability (SSD), you need to have a work history that spans a predetermined length. Once you receive this, SSI may also be obtainable. The government limits your assets to $2,000 if you want to apply for SSI. If you're a couple, your limit is $3,000.

When you're applying for SSI, remember that any income over $20 per month begins to limit the amount you can receive. Not all income is countable. Some income that is counted toward the limit includes wages, state disability payments and Social Security benefits, to name a few.

If you do meet the required income limits, you'll be able to apply for SSI. Anyone who is a child with a disability, adult with a disability or senior age 65 or older may apply for SSI and receive it if he or she qualifies.

If you're ready to apply for SSI, it's a good idea to work with your attorney on the initial documents. Often, applying for SSD at the same time as SSI is an option. If you already have SSD, it's easier to know if you'll qualify for SSI as well. Remember to collect as much documentation as you can, and take your time to make sure the documents are filled out accurately for the highest chance of having your claim approved.
