What is Supplemental Security Income (SSI)?

Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a Federal program designed to pay monthly benefits to people with limited income and resources who are disabled, blind or over the age of 65. Children with disabilities may also get SSI.

Unlike Social Security Disability benefits, SSI benefits don’t require the necessary “quarters of coverage.”

If you are eligible for SSI, you are most likely eligible for Medicaid and food assistance, as well. Medicaid will help you pay for hospital stays, doctors’ bills, prescriptions and other health costs.

At Nash Disability Law, our attorneys can help you apply for SSI benefits or appeal for benefits if you were denied. In fact, our disability lawyers have helped more people in the Chicago metro area win benefits than any other law firm.

What is the Difference Between Social Security Disability (SSDI) and SSI?

SSD is for people with serious medical conditions who can no longer work. You may qualify for SSD if you have worked long enough and paid enough Social Security taxes.

If you have not paid enough money into the Social Security system to qualify for benefits, you may still be eligible to receive SSI. The government will review your income and resources and determine what benefits may be available to you.

The attorneys at Nash Disability law can help you apply for SSD and/or SSI benefits. We can also help you appeal if you were denied by the government. If you have questions about SSD or SSI benefits, call our office at 312-945-7567 or fill out a contact form.

I’d like to take this time to send you my belated heartfelt thanks in successfully handling my disability case.  Your staff was most helpful in answering all my questions.  No matter who I spoke with, they were all well versed on the procedures, made sure I fully understood what the process was and showed compassion and patience.  I really appreciate that.  Customer service is a key to a successful team.  Thank you again for all your help.
