When you can’t work and haven’t paid enough into the Social Security system, you may qualify for Supplemental Security Income (SSI).

SSI is a federal program designed to pay monthly benefits if you’re disabled and have limited income and resources. Your child with a disability may also qualify for SSI.

UNLIKE SOCIAL SECURITY DISABILITY (SSD) BENEFITS, SSI BENEFITS ARE NOT BASED ON YOUR WORK HISTORY.

If you qualify for SSI, you’ll most likely qualify for Medicaid and food assistance, too. Medicaid will help you pay for hospital stays, doctors’ bills, prescriptions, and other health costs.

At the Law Offices of Karen Kraus Bill, we can help you apply for SSI benefits or file an appeal if you were denied. WE CAN ALSO HELP YOU WITH SSD BENEFITS.
