Have you ever been down on your luck, a time when it felt like nothing was going your way? It can be that way all the time for those who are in desperate need of funds from SSI Supplemental Security Income. SSI isn’t just given out to those who need it, it needs to be sought after. It’s best for those who haven’t the work history or the ability to achieve Social Security Disability benefits, usually due to some level of permanent or semi-permanent illness or injury.
SSI is meant for those who are low-income, as they aren’t well or able bodied enough to earn their own income. Many times, this is due to a lifelong disability that has put a person in a vulnerable place due to their inability to earn. In our experience, many of our clients were wrongly told they were not entitled to SSI benefits and then we were able to win their case and get them the benefits they deserve. At Gardberg & Kimberly PC Attorneys at Law, we know how important SSI benefits are for those families in need.
It can be the difference between paying rent and not. The difference between eating 3 meals a day or maybe just one or two. No-one should have to live like that, especially when disability has left them down on their luck. Mental and physical disabilities can be considered when applying for SSI Supplemental Security Income.
For those that are in a tough spot, sometimes it’s family members who have to pick up the pieces and move forward. Sometimes these disabilities leave a loved one unable to care for themselves. This would make the filing and management of their claim near impossible, if they tried to do it alone. Loved ones are able to step in and help those file for and be awarded with SSI benefits.
