Applying for SSI: What You Need to Know
At the office of Elmer & Brunot, PC, we know that life is not often easy or forgiving. That's why thousands of Oregon residents have trusted Supplemental Security Income attorney Randy M. Elmer when they have faced workplace injuries or disability.
Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a federal cash benefit program for low-income residents who are:
- Physically or mentally disabled
It helps cover the costs of necessities including food, clothing, and shelter. The key to receiving the benefit, and to our law firm's ongoing success, has been our thorough case preparation. When you are in a situation that qualifies for SSI, whether a physical disability or a mental disability, we cover the details so the federal government can clearly understand your circumstances.
What’s the Difference Between Social Security Disability and Supplemental Security Income?
Understanding the difference between Social Security Disability (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income can be helpful in determining if you qualify for financial assistance.
Social Security Disability
SSDI benefits are only available to those who qualify as disabled in accordance with the Social Security Administration’s definition and who have paid into the social security system.
Supplemental Security Income
Supplemental Security Income, however, is available to those who meet the requirements and have little to no income.
Because SSI and SSDI are two separate programs you may be eligible for both. Our lawyers are well-versed in the qualifications and requirements for each program and can help you better understand what benefits you may qualify for.
