Do I Qualify for Disability Benefits?
Unlike SSDI benefits, you do not have to have prior work experience to qualify for Supplemental Security Income (SSI). SSI is a U.S. government program that is designed to help those who cannot work, and have little or no income, meet their basic needs.
In order to qualify, you must:
- Be a U.S. citizen
- Have one of a variety of defined physical or medical conditions that prevent you from working (or be over the age of 65).
- Own no more than a few thousand dollars worth of assets and have little no income
If you have always been unable to work, have not worked enough, or have had too little income to quality for SSDI benefits, you are likely eligible to qualify for SSI. If you are unsure of whether you meet the criteria required to receive SSI or SSDI benefits, contact us today for a free consultation and to speak to a knowledgeable attorney who can help you get the compensation you deserve.
Do I Need an Attorney to Apply for SSI?
While it isn’t essential to employ the help of a disability lawyer when applying for Supplemental Security Income, those who seek qualified representation are statistically much more likely to be successful in their claim. If you have already applied and had your application denied, in all likelihood your reconsideration appeal will also fail. That is, unless you seek legal assistance.
A disability lawyer can help you review your claim, pinpoint why it was unsuccessful, and obtain the proper documents, statements, and other key evidence that will help secure your financial future.
It’s important to remember that if you’ve had your claim denied, there is a short window of opportunity to file your appeal. Missing this deadline will force you to reapply and can make the process significantly longer and more difficult.
