SSI Benefits for the Homeless
There are certain Social Security benefits that people without a place of residence will be denied. However, Indiana supplemental Social Security Income (SSI) benefits are one such classification of benefits for which even homeless people can be eligible. SSI benefits are for people who are suffering from a disability that prevents them from working.
If you are disabled and homeless, you may qualify for SSI benefits. Even if your claim has been rejected in the past, our Indiana social security lawyers of Hankey Marks & Crider, may be able to help you get the benefits you need. Contact our experienced social security lawyers at (317) 634-8565 to learn more about how we can serve you.
Receiving Benefits Without a Home
One of the greatest challenges to receiving benefits as a person who does not have a permanent residence is figuring out where the benefits will be sent. If you are homeless, your SSI benefits can be distributed to:
- Your personal bank account
- Mailed to a third party
- Given directly to a “representative payee”
- Deposited on a personal Direct Express bank card
Your situations may have an effect on the benefits you can receive, especially as certain living arrangements will make you ineligible to receive benefits. Be sure to review whether or not your living situation excludes you from receiving benefits.
If you are homeless and disabled, you may be eligible for SSI benefits. Our Indiana social security attorneys of Hankey Marks & Crider, may be able to help you apply for and receive the benefits you so desperately need. Call us at (317) 634-8565 for a confidential case evaluation.
