Supplemental Security Income “SSI” Benefits 2019-10-26T09:26:32-07:00

Supplemental Security Income “SSI” Benefits

The SSI program pays benefits to disabled adults and children who have limited income and resources. Also, SSI benefits are payable to people 65 and older without disabilities who meet the financial limits. People who have worked long enough may also be able to receive Social Security disability or retirement benefits as well as SSI.

For most people, the medical requirements for disability payments are the same under both SSD and SSI and disability is determined by the same process. Whether you apply for Social Security or SSI disability, you will be asked to provide information about your medical condition, work and education history to help the Social Security Administration decide if you are disabled under their rules.

If you have not yet filed for SSD or SSI assistance, you can now file online if you meet certain requirements. You can also schedule an appointment with a local Social Security office (for example, Phoenix) by calling 1-800 772-1213.

If you are thinking about filing a claim but may want our help, we encourage you to share some information with us for a free claim assessment. Note, we don’t get paid unless we win.  We offer free first time consults to discuss your claim further.
