SSI Attorneys

Supplemental Security Income

Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a federal government program designed to help those without financial resources with a physical or mental impairment. The SSI program is overseen by the Social Security Administration. The requirements to qualify for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) are different than what is required to qualify for Social Security disability Insurance (SSDI).

Do I Qualify for SSI?

To qualify for Supplemental Security Income (SSI), you must be disabled, blind or over the age of 65. For adults, many of the requirements used to determine disability are the same for SSI as they are for SSDI, meaning you must meet SSA’s criteria for “total disability”. This means you will need to demonstrate that you are unable to perform any level of work defined as “substantial gainful activity”. There are other conditions that can possibly get a child qualified for SSI which would not qualify for an adult.

If the applicant is less than 65 years old, they will need to be disabled to qualify for SSI. If an applicant qualifies for SSI, they will have a continuing disability review periodically to ensure their condition has not changed.

How do I apply for SSI?
