Reputable Suwanee SSI Disability Lawyers Work Hard for You
Helping the people of Suwanee with SSI disability for more than 30 years
Disability benefits can help when you’re too ill or injured to keep working. But sometimes you need assurance that your needs can be met. Supplemental Security Insurance (SSI) is a federal program designed to help people with limited income or resources. If making ends meet is becoming more and more difficult, you may want to speak with an Atlanta SSI disability lawyer about your options.
Eligibility for Supplemental Security Income
In order to qualify for SSI, you must fit some of these categories:
Know the limitations of SSI
At the Law Offices of John V. Hogan, our Atlanta SSI disability attorneys work hard to get you as much relief as possible. Because SSI is based on financial need, there are certain facts governing it that don’t necessarily apply to Social Security disability. For example:
- You can’t work at all. Supplemental Security Insurance is only given to those who demonstrate very strict income and resource limitations.
- You must stay put. Since SSI requires no contribution, you must remain in the United States in order to be eligible. You cannot leave the state in which you reside for more than 30 days.
- The payment varies. Payments for SSDI are calculated based on how much money you (as a worker) put into the system. With SSI, the calculations are based on your available income and resources, and vary up to a mandated federal level.
