Supplemental Security Income in Texas
SSI Attorneys Serving Dallas-Fort Worth
Though the two are often discussed together, Supplemental Security Incomes and Social Security Disability Insurance are two separate programs. While Social Security Disability Insurance is only available to people who have worked and earned enough work credits, Supplemental Security Income (also known as SSI) is available even to those who have never been able to work. Supplemental Security Income is a federal program designed to provide assistance to low-income individuals who are disabled, blind, or meet certain age requirements. It is not funded by Social Security, but rather by general tax revenues, meaning you do not need to have earned any certain number of work credits in order to qualify.
At Coats & Todd, we can help you pursue Supplemental Security Income and work to obtain the maximum amount of financial assistance you need. Benefits could be available to you, and our Dallas-Fort Worth Supplemental Security Income lawyers are ready to help you determine if you are eligible for those benefits.
Contact us today at (888) 898-9189 to find out whether you may be eligible for SSI and to obtain assistance with the filing process.
Who Is Eligible for Supplemental Security Income?
In order to receive Supplemental Security Income, you must meet certain eligibility requirements. These requirements are two-fold.
First, you may be eligible if you meet all of the following requirements:
- You have a limited income;
- You have limited resources, and;
- You are a United States citizen or national, or you are an eligible alien.
Next, you must also meet one of the following criteria:
- You are 65 or older;
- You are blind, or;
- You are disabled.
If you believe you are eligible for Supplemental Security Income and would like help filing your claim, contact Coats & Todd today. While you are not required to have an attorney in order to file for SSI, working with an experienced legal team can help ensure that you do not accidentally make any mistakes that could jeopardize your claim and, ultimately, your benefits.
