Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
Supplemental Security Income, or SSI, is a Social Security program that is designed to help qualifying people who have low income or few resources. There are many factors that determine whether or not a person qualifies for Supplemental Security Income. The SSI program is managed by the Social Security Administration, but is funded through the US Treasury’s general funds.
If you need help determining whether or not you qualify for SSI benefits, or have had your claim denied, the Indiana SSI lawyers of the Hankey Law Office, can help you seek the benefits you need. Contact our experienced Indiana Social Security lawyers at (317) 634-8565 for a consultation.
Who qualifies for SSI?
The standard amount of money SSI beneficiaries receive is the same nationwide, but numerous states add more funds to the normal benefit. SSI benefits are available to the following groups:
- The blind
- Those older than 65
- Disabled persons
Many SSI applicants are denied the first time they apply, and they must therefore wait longer to receive the benefits that they need to keep pace with the cost of living. Working closely with a Social Security attorney can help to ensure that your application receives a full and fair consideration, and a skilled legal professional can help you to appeal a denial.
If you have been rejected for Supplemental Security Income or would like assistance with your initial application, the Indiana SSI lawyers of the Hankey Law Office, can help. Contact our compassionate Social Security attorneys by calling (317) 634-8565 today.
