Guidance In Supplemental Security Income Matters

If you are disabled and do not meet the income requirements for Social Security Disability (SSD), you may be able to obtain the benefits you need from Supplemental Security Income (SSI). SSI is a federal program designed to help aged, blind and disabled people who have not had the opportunity to earn Social Security work credits. It provides money to meet basic needs such as food, clothing and shelter.

If you are seeking SSI benefits for yourself or on behalf of a loved one, the attorneys at Bartels Sherman & Wallace are here to offer experienced advice and advocacy. For more than 35 years, we have been serving the needs of clients suffering from disabilities. Contact us today online or by phone at 870-330-4377 to arrange a consultation with an experienced Supplemental Security Income lawyer in Arkansas.

Qualifying For Supplemental Security Income (SSI)

Supplemental Security Income is a need-based program. In order to qualify, you must:

  • Be 65 years or older, blind or disabled
  • Have limited income and resources

The definition of disabled is the same for SSI as it is for SSD (see, Do I Qualify?).

If you have not been able to work enough to qualify for SSD, SSI can provide you with the safety net you need to cover the basic necessities of life. Our attorneys understand the difference an SSI check can make in our clients’ lives and will do everything we can to help you obtain the benefits you need and deserve.
