Oklahoma City Supplemental Security Income Lawyer
Get Experienced Representation for Your Disability Claim
If you are a low-income disabled person, you may face significant hardship that threatens your ability to live a life free of financial instability. At the Law Offices of Dan Davis, our Oklahoma City disability attorneys understand how frustrating and confusing the process can be for injured and disabled people who simply want the compensation and benefits they are rightfully entitled to receive.
Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is intended to assist qualified applicants who are unable to support themselves for an extended period of time due to injury. Unlike those receiving Social Security Disability, injury victims are able to receive SSI benefits regardless of whether they have been an active part of the workforce. However, many disabled people or those who otherwise would qualify find that receiving these important benefits can be difficult without the assistance of an experienced lawyer.
If you need help securing the benefits you deserve, contact the Law Offices of Dan Davis.
What is Supplemental Security Income (SSI)?
Supplemental Security Income is a provision intended to assist those who have not contributed via payroll tax to the Social Security pool. Examples may include those who own their own farm or business, a homemaker, or those who otherwise support themselves without a conventional paycheck. Monthly payments under Supplemental Security Income will vary up to the maximum federal rate, which may be added to by the state, or decreased due to countable income or resources.
Who Is Eligible for SSI Benefits?
Supplemental Security Income benefits may be awarded if you are 65 or older, blind or disabled. In addition, you must have limited income and resources and be a U.S. citizen or national. The government has specific criteria describing who is eligible for these types of benefits. The disability must result in the inability to do any substantial profitable activity if you are over 18 years of age. The disability also must have lasted, or be expected to last, for a continuous period of at least one year or result in death.
