If you are disabled and are of limited income and resources, you may be eligible to receive Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) as well as Supplemental Security Income (SSI). However, if you do not meet the eligibility requirements of the SSDI program, you might still be eligible to receive SSI benefits. Take action now to hire an attorney and file your claim. SSI benefits can help you pay for expenses such as food and housing. When you hire an SSI disability lawyer in Monroe from Gallon, Takacs, Boissoneault & Shaffer Co., LPA, you may be making the difference between an approved claim and a denied one.
Not only have we helped countless disabled individuals secure benefits from the Social Security Administration (SSA), but we have also received recognition and accolades from many industry groups, including “Best Lawyers in America.”
According to the SSA, SSI is available to both adults and children who are of limited income and resources. This includes people who are disabled and cannot work, children of deceased parents, or those who are blind or age 65 and older. If you meet any of these requirements, then you deserve SSI to help you pay for your basic needs and care.
If you are a disabled veteran, we would be honored to represent you to get you the benefits you deserve.
Do not believe that you are not entitled to your full benefit amount. Under federal law, the maximum Supplemental Security Income payment amount for 2016 is $733 per month for an individual and $1,100 for an eligible individual with an eligible spouse. Subtracting monthly countable income can reduce your monthly amount. An attorney can help you determine what is countable income and what is not, and how receiving your full SSI benefit amount can be protected.
One mistake that most SSI claimants make is not hiring an attorney. Not only is this mistake avoidable, but it can be costly too. When you do not hire an attorney, your chances of making a preventable error on your SSI application are much higher. As such, your chance of your claim being denied is greater.
Another common mistake that can be avoided by hiring a SSI attorney from the start is failing to include property documentation, proof of disability, or incorrectly reporting income.
If you are of limited income and resources and need SSI benefits to care for yourself and your family, you are probably wondering how you will possibly afford an attorney.
