Legal Assistance Through The Supplemental Security Income Application Process
Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a needs-based program that provides income for individuals who are disabled, blind or over the age of 65 — and have little or no income. Some people qualify for both SSD and SSI benefits.
I am attorney Arthur J. Branan Jr. I established my practice to guide individuals in and around my community through the complex system associated with SSI because I am passionate about helping others secure the benefits that will help them live the best quality of life possible. I can help you seek maximum benefits if you are dealing with a disability. I can handle both your SSD and SSI claims if you are eligible.
Important Limitations To Obtain SSI Benefits
Since SSI is a needs-based program, there are income limitations that apply. For example:
- If an individual has more than $2,000 in assets
- If a couple has more than $3,000 in assets
- A household income limit is in place for SSD and SSI
In terms of assets, a dollar-for-dollar reduction in benefits could apply. However, some assets do not count toward that limit, including a vehicle and a house. In terms of household income, I can go over that amount when you come to my office for a free consultation and discuss other aspects regarding Social Security Disability benefits.
No fees upfront: If you are concerned about the cost of hiring a lawyer, remember that you pay me only if I successfully recover benefits for you.
