Support for Your Supplemental Security Income (SSI) Application

You haven’t been able to work much for a long time—and severe health problems rule out working now.

But you still need to pay for food, a place to live and other essentials.
Disability benefits from Supplemental Security Income (SSI) could provide the financial relief you’re looking for and bring more peace to your life.

SSI comes with monthly checks and qualifies you for Medicaid coverage to take care of your medical conditions.

But when most people apply for disability, they get denied.
The Social Security Administration runs SSI and has thousands of rules about who gets disability income. It’s easy to feel overwhelmed facing this big government program.

The lawyers at Horenstein, Nicholson & Blumenthal are here to help you through it.

We’ve helped thousands of people in Ohio get disability benefits over the past 40 years. Our law firm is dedicated to helping everyday people experiencing hard times.

We’ll work hard to win your claim so you’ll say  “Helping me, that’s HNB.”

What Do You Get with SSI?

When you qualify for SSI, you automatically qualify for Medicaid health coverage.

And you qualify for monthly payments to help with basic expenses.

The amounts change every year. In 2019, Social Security set these maximum payment amounts:

  • $771 per month for an individual
  • $1,157 per month for a couple

The idea of SSI is to help you when you can’t work because of bad health, so working and earning a substantial income can disqualify you for benefits.

However, if you work a little bit and your pay is below a certain level, you could still receive SSI payments in a reduced amount.

Besides working-age people who can’t work, SSI benefits are also available to children with disabilities from families that qualify, people over 65 who meet the financial requirements, even without disabilities, and people living with blindness.

How Do You Qualify for SSI?

To receive SSI benefits, you must meet these qualifications:

  • Your physical or mental health problems make working impossible.
  • You haven’t worked much in recent years.
  • Your income and your assets—like property and savings—fall below certain amounts.

If you do have a substantial recent work history, Social Security has a different disability program for you: Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI).

SSDI doesn’t have income limits like SSI. You become eligible for SSDI coverage when you work and pay enough into the Social Security system through payroll taxes.

When you apply for SSI, you’ll need to submit evidence proving that you qualify for benefits, including medical records from treatment you’ve received for your impairments and details of your past jobs, income, savings and property.

The attorneys at HNB can help you gather all the documents you need and build a strong case for benefits.

We’ll take time to listen to your needs. As you apply for SSI, we’ll make sure you’re treated with dignity and respect.

This isn’t something you should have to deal with on your own. You deserve support when you’re going through something hard. HNB stands by your side.
