Supplemental Security Income We Understand Your Position & We're Here to Correct It

Atlanta SSI Attorney

Help for the Supplemental Security Income Application and Appeals Process

There are two Federal government programs that provide assistance to disabled Americans. Social Security Disability insurance is one, and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is the other. Each has a different purpose and separate eligibility requirements.

Who is Eligible for Supplemental Security Income?

If you meet any of the following criteria, you may be eligible for SSI:

In addition, children with "marked and severe functional limitations" which are expected to last at least 12 months, or result in death, are eligible for SSI. Your benefits will be determined and paid to help you with food and shelter.

The program provides much-needed support for those that are unable to earn enough to support themselves. The application process, however, can sometimes be lengthy and without the needed benefits, life can be very difficult. An Atlanta Social Security disability lawyer from our firm can help. For over 40 years we have helped thousands of disabled Americans and veterans to receive their benefits. We can most likely help you, too.

In order to determine eligibility, Social Security will evaluate the income and resources you currently have. Some income and assistance that you may be receiving will not be counted. For example, if you are on the SNAP program, these benefits will not be included in the calculation. The home you live in will also not be considered a resource in determining eligibility and other necessities. We can guide you through the application process and make sure that the picture presented in your application accurately and clearly presents your unique circumstances. This is a key factor in getting successful results within a timely fashion.
