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.

SSI benefits can provide you financial relief when you can’t work and have limited income and resources.

Anyone who is:

  • aged (age 65 or older);
  • blind; or
  • disabled.

And who:

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.

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

Thank you for letting your staff help me with my Social Security disability case. I am very happy with the outcome. Please, thank your staff for me. Lot of people do not know about trying to get Social Security disability benefits without a lawyer. They think it will happen and they will have all the money to themselves. I know I was one of them (smile). But thanks to T.V. I saw your commercial and made the call. God Bless you and your staff.
