As the Holiday season is upon us it reminds me of how very thankful I am to you all for providing the legal services you perform so well. Because of your work and dedication, even as my physical health gets worse as the years pass I am allowed the dignity to remain living in my own home. Being independent and staying in my own home provides me a good and decent life. Because of your efforts I have joy and hope in my life .
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.
