A big part of the American dream is working an honest job in which one makes a living to support themselves and their family. However, what happens if an injury, illness or age has made it difficult to obtain or maintain a job? How is a person supposed to support themselves and their family? This can be a tough question to answer, but it can become easier to answer for those who qualify and seek Supplemental Security Income.
Sometimes this money needs to simply be sought. Other times, it requires hard work, persistence and dedication for Mobile residents who deserve SSI benefits to be granted access to the monetary support they need. Naturally, the person must meet certain qualifications, those differing for seniors over 65 in comparison to children or even the disabled. These different types of people are held to different standards when wanting to know if they have qualified to receive SSI.
At Gardberg & Kimberly PC Attorneys at Law, we know how much SSI would mean to you and your family. Those struggling to make ends meet can feel helpless in their situation. Even if you have been turned down for SSI in the past, it doesn’t necessarily mean that you aren’t qualified to receive financial benefits from SSI. An error could have been made when filling out the paperwork, for example, that prohibited a person from receiving the SSI that they or their family member deserves.
For those who are new to the process, it can be a less stressful and a more expedited process to seek SSI Supplemental Security Income in the correct manner the first time. Appealing an unfavorable SSI decision can be costly and can cause an unnecessary delay in receiving the benefits a person deserves. However, it is good to know that an SSI decision can be appealed, if need be. There are lots of options for those who are unable to procure an income due to disability or age.
