When a person is disabled and has not paid into the Social Security system through payroll taxes, he or she can receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI). The individual will qualify for SSI if he or she has a financial need. If you are disabled, but unsure if you qualify for SSI, talk to us at The Cummings Law Firm, P.A. We can look at your specific situation and help you with your next steps.
Our compassionate and skilled Charlotte and Gastonia, North Carolina, SSI benefits application lawyer can help you. Call (704) 376-2853 to arrange a free initial consultation.
Do you qualify? Supplemental Security Income is paid to individuals who are disabled, blind or 65 and older. They must have limited income and limited financial resources.
Unlike Social Security Disability (SSD), you do not need to have paid into the Social Security system through payroll taxes to qualify for SSI benefits. Supplemental Security Income benefits are approved based on financial need. In addition to meeting medical impairments, you must meet financial requirements.
It is possible that you may qualify for both SSD and SSI. Our law firm will look at both options for you. We will seek to maximize the benefits you receive.
Do you have a disabled child? Children who are either physically or mentally disabled may qualify to receive Supplemental Security Income. They must qualify under the listing of medical impairments and limitations. Our Charlotte Supplemental Security Income lawyer can help if your son, daughter or another child is disabled and requires benefits.
