Supplemental Security Income May Be An Option

Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits are available to disabled people in need of financial support, regardless of work history and regardless of how much has been paid into the system through Social Security taxes.

While the question of whether you qualify for SSI benefits may be more straightforward than qualifying for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits, getting these benefits can still be a challenge. At the Law Offices of Stuart Barasch, our Miami-area lawyers are available to help overcome this challenge and get the benefits you need.

Are SSI Benefits Right For You?

In every case, one of the first steps we take is to make certain you are applying for the appropriate benefits. If you qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance, which offers more significant benefits, our lawyers will make certain that is what you are applying for. SSI, on the other hand, may be available to those who are permanently disabled, blind or over age 65. It is need-based, so you may not be eligible if your income or assets exceed a certain threshold.

You Don't Have To Go It Alone

Many people begin the process on their own, filing their claim themselves — only to receive a denial. This is often where our attorneys step in. This is where our experience becomes most beneficial, as we work through the various stages of appeals in pursuit of the benefits you need.

In Supplemental Security Income cases, legal fees are determined by statute and must be approved by the Social Security Administration. You only pay if we get benefits for you.
