Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
Not all mental and physical disabilities completely prevent a claimant from working. However, physical challenges prevent them from working a full-time schedule. Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is one of the largest federal programs and provides financial assistance to supplement, not replace income. At the Law Office of Kathleen L. Day, we guide clients through a complex, bureaucratic process that can be discouraging. We remain at their side from the initial application process to necessary appeals to secure the SSI benefits they deserve.
The Need For A Nueces County Supplemental Security Income Attorney
Unlike Social Security Disability benefits, SSI is a resource-based program. There are no requirements for claimants to have paid a certain amount from payroll taxes to collect benefits. While the medical qualifications are the same as SSDI, income requirements of the claimant and family members in the same household are much different.
We will help you with the initial application, going through all of your medical records and ensuring that data is complete, thorough and accurate. More often than not, those initial applications are denied. Claimants who handle the SSI process on their own may give up, assuming that the final decision has been made.
Like our clients, our lawyer and staff are South Texas residents. We dedicate all of our efforts and resources to securing the SSI benefits you deserve, regardless of the challenges.
