Get free advice on Supplemental Security Income
Supplemental Security Income – or SSI – is designed to help you financially when bad health has left you unable to work. If this is true, and your income and resources are limited, you may qualify for SSI.
SSI could be the answer for you if you lack enough of what Social Security calls “quarters of coverage.” That refers to how consistently you worked and paid Social Security taxes, with an emphasis on the last 10 years.
If you’ve had to deal with a lot of physical or mental health problems over the years, your work history might be rocky. And you might be struggling to put food on the table.
At Nash Disability Law, we know hard things happen to good people. You’ve worked hard, but have had a hard time keeping steady work. We take time getting to know you when you need help.
Unlike some law firms, where you might not even meet a lawyer until right before you have a hearing with a judge, we meet with you face-to-face and help you understand the process.
We can determine whether SSI is right for you and if you should apply for SSI – or whether you need a different kind of disability benefits. Talk to us about your situation. You pay nothing until you win benefits.
What you need to qualify for SSI
To qualify for SSI based on disability, you must be unable to work and meet these other requirements:
- You have limited income.
- You have limited resources, like property and savings.
- You’ve applied for any other cash benefits you may be eligible for, such as pensions or Social Security retirement.
- You’ve filed an application.
Children with disabilities that limit their ability to function may also qualify for childhood SSI.
