Supplemental Security Income (SSI) Lawyer in Chicago, IL

Illinois Attorney for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) Financial Requirements

Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a welfare program administered by the Social Security Administration. Although SSA administers the program, the payments are actually made from the general revenues of the federal government derived from a number of different tax payments.

How Much Money Can I Receive From SSI?

The Federal Benefit Rate (FBR) governs the amount that a claimant can receive from SSI on an annual basis. For 2019, the FBR is $771 per month. In other words, the maximum amount of money you can receive a month if your SSI cases is approved is $771.

What Are The Income Requirements For SSI?

Since SSI is a welfare based disability program, the financial requirements are drastically different than those for disability insurance benefits. Whereas SSA is only concerned with gross wages for SSDI benefits, all income is considered for SSI. There are several different categories of income which include: earned, unearned, in-kind, and deemed income.

Understanding how income is evaluated for your SSI claim can be quite complicated. There are a number of different rules and exceptions to those rules that may or may not apply to your individual claim. For more information on the specific SSI income rules, visit the SSA website or contact Pearson Disability Law, LLC at 312-999-0999.
