Chicago Supplemental Security Income (SSI) Attorney

Lawyer for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) Serving Cook and Lake Counties

Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a needs based program of the government administered by the Social Security Administration (SSA). Unlike Social Security Disability Income (SSDI), it does not matter whether you have paid into the system to qualify. You must have limited income and resources and meet strict financial requirements in order to receive Supplemental Security Income benefits. Additionally, you may be eligible for SSI only if you are 65 years old or older, blind, or disabled.

Supplemental Security Income Details

The Social Security Administration determines whether you qualify for Supplemental Security Income disability benefits based on the same four criteria as Social Security Disability Income (unless you are a child): age, education, medical condition, and prior work experience. If you meet all four criteria, you will then be found to be medically disabled. If you meet the financial criteria as well, then the Social Security Administration will award you Supplemental Security Income benefits. The maximum allowance from SSI depends on the Federal benefit rate. For 2015, the maximum for an individual is $733 and $1,100 for a couple. People who qualify for SSI are often eligible for Medicaid as well.

Pearson Disability Law, LLC Can Help You Receive Supplemental Security Income

Dealing with the government can be a real challenge, especially when trying to receive Supplemental Security Income benefits. The guidelines can be confusing and their forms are incomplete and misleading. Even if you can accurately and timely complete their requests, the Administration routinely loses or misplaces documents, leaving most SSI claimants’ records incomplete. With incomplete records it is little surprise that SSA denies nearly 70% of claimants off of their initial application for disability benefits.

We practice disability law because we enjoy helping people. At Pearson Disability Law, LLC, we have years of experience dealing with the government and making sure that SSI Disability medical records are received and accurately reflect your medical condition. Our law firm gets paid nothing unless we get you the benefits you deserve. We can help even if you have been denied and need assistance during the appeal process. Contact us today at 312-999-0999312-999-0999.
