How Income Affects SSI Benefits
Unlike Social Security Disability Insurance, Supplemental Security Income is paid by general tax revenues. It is designed to help Americans struggling with disabilities to pay for basic living expenses. Due to the high demand, it is not easy to receive these benefits. Many claims are denied, necessitating the pursuit of an appeal.
If you believe you are entitled to Supplemental Security Income benefits, it may be a long complicated process requiring several appeals. With a knowledgeable attorney, you can fight for this additional income with the assurance that your case will receive a full and fair hearing. It is worth the fight, and the Indiana SSI attorneys of the Hankey Law Office, P.C., are here to help through the process. Contact us today by calling 317-634-8565.
Receiving Your SSI Benefits
Not all SSI benefits are equal. Depending on the situation, the amount of the checks can be drastically different. The following factors will determine your eligibility and how much additional income you will receive.
- Current income
- Number of dependents
- Type of disability
- Help from family or friends
- Additional resources
The majority of SSI claims are denied the first time. However, this does not mean it is the end of the road. Multiple appeals can eventually lead to an accepted claim and additional income to help you through this difficult time.
