SUPPLEMENTAL SECURITY INCOME (SSI)
Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a program administered by the Social Security Administration to support individuals with very few resources and limited income. Individuals age 65 years or younger must be disabled to qualify for SSI. An experienced lawyer knowledgeable in Supplemental Security Income (SSI) can further inform you as to SSI qualifications and can help you effectively navigate the system.
The standard factors that establish disability in both Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and SSI cases include the individual's age, education, work experience, and ability to communicate, read, and write in English. These factors, coupled with the individual's physical and/or emotional and mental problems determine whether an individual may have a winnable claim.
