Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program is a federal welfare program for the disabled. An individual who meets the eligibility requirements of both income and asset limitations must file an application for disability benefits under this program. To qualify for benefits under the SSI program, an individual has to prove that he or she is unable to perform any gainful work activity by reason of any medically determinable physical or mental condition which can be expected to result in death or which has lasted or is expected to last for a continuous period of not less than 12 months.
To find out if you are eligible to apply for SSI benefits, you should contact your local Social Security Administration office and they will review your income. If you have already filed a claim for SSI benefits and have been denied, our experienced attorneys can help you file the necessary appeals.
