Supplemental Security Income Attorneys
Title 16 Disability
Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a federal government program that pays out monthly benefits to the elderly and the disabled with limited income and financial resources. It is different from Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), which is available only to individuals who have worked enough to qualify (paid through payroll taxes). SSI can be collected by low-income individuals who have never worked before, and can be received in addition to SSDI.
- Who is eligible to receive SSI benefits?
- You must be aged 65 or older, blind, or disabled. A disability is defined as a physical or mental impairment that is expected to last for more than a year and prevent you from working.
- You must have limited income and assets. This includes all sources of income, cash, personal property, bank accounts, and other assets.
- You must live in the United States. In some cases, a non-citizen may also qualify if you meet certain conditions.
Individuals who live in certain institutions, a public emergency shelter for the homeless, a publicly operated community residence, and other approved institutions, you may qualify for SSI. You can discuss your eligibility with an SSI lawyer at United States Disability Center to learn more.
