Supplemental Security Income Benefits | Brandon Social Security Disability Lawyer
Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a disability program that is a needs-based program that takes into account your income and resources in determining your entitlement to Social Security Disability benefits.
While you must meet the disability requirements of any disability applicant, you must meet certain income and resource requirements.
Social Security will consider any wages, unemployment, short and long-term disability, land, checking accounts, vehicles, spouse’s income when determining whether you’re entitled to SSI. If you meet both the medical disability and income requirements, you will receive monthly disability benefits.
Individuals who are not insured for Social Security Disability benefits purposes because they do not have sufficient credits accrued become eligible for SSI. Unfortunately, many are not entitled to SSI because of their resources and income. For more information about the resource and income requirements for SSI, contact Sharon Barrett at Cavey & Barrett, your Tampa based Social Security Disability experts.
