When you can’t work and haven’t paid enough in taxes into the Social Security system, you may qualify for Supplemental Security Income (SSI). SSI is a federal program designed to pay monthly benefits to you if you’re disabled, blind or over the age of 65 and have limited income and resources. Children with disabilities may also qualify for SSI.
Unlike Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits, SSI benefits are not based on your work history. The funding for SSI comes from general tax revenues – not from the Social Security taxes taken out of your paycheck.
If you qualify for SSI, you’ll most likely qualify for Medicaid and food assistance, too. Medicaid will help you pay for hospital stays, doctors’ bills, prescriptions and other health costs.
Our attorneys can help you apply for SSI benefits or appeal if you were denied.
