What is Supplemental
Security Income?

If you haven’t been able to work much because of health limitations, Supplemental Security Income (SSI) could provide monthly checks to help you pay for your basic living expenses.

Supplemental Security Income is a federal government program for people with limited income and resources who have disabilities, blindness or are over the age of 65. Children with disabilities may also qualify for SSI.

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.

Our mission is to help people just like you in Lubbock, Plainview, Levelland or anywhere in West Texas

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

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

Social Security Disability is available if you suffer with a disability and can no longer 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 Supplemental Security Income benefits.

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