Texas Man happy after receiving Supplemental Security Income

What is Supplemental
Security Income?

If you’ve been unable to work for a long time because of health problems, you could get monthly benefits from the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) federal disability program to help pay for your basic living expenses.

SSI helps people with limited income and resources who have disabilities, are blind or are over age 65. Children with disabilities may also qualify for SSI.

It’s run by Social Security, but unlike Social Security Disability benefits, Supplemental Security Income benefits are not based on your work history.

If you’re eligible for SUPPLEMENTAL SECURITY INCOME, you are most likely eligible for Medicaid and food assistance, as well.

Medicaid will help you pay for hospital stays, doctors’ bills, prescriptions and other health costs.

At Baynetta M. Jordan, P.C., Attorney at Law, we can help you apply for Supplemental Security Income benefits or appeal for benefits if you were denied.

Call our office today for a free evaluation of your SSI claim.

What’s the Difference Between Social Security Disability (SSD) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI)?

Social Security Disability is available if you have a disability that makes it impossible for you to work. You may qualify for SSD if you have worked long enough and paid enough Social Security taxes.

If you haven’t paid enough money into the Social Security system to qualify for benefits, you may still be eligible to receive Supplemental Security Income, or SSI. The government will review your income and determine what resources are available to you.

Baynetta M. Jordan, P.C., Attorney at Law, can help you apply for SSD and/or SSI benefits.

We also handle appeals if you were denied by the government.

We stand by the people of Midland-Odessa, Brownfield, Denver City, Seminole and everywhere in the Permian Basin when you’re facing difficult times because of your health and finances.
