Qualifying for Supplemental Security Income in Alabama

by | Nov 21, 2019 | Ssi Supplemental Security Income |

Our readers in Alabama may have seen many of our previous posts here that describe the desperately needed financial help that Social Security Disability benefits provide to people who have injuries or illnesses that prevent them from continuing to work. However, there is another program that is administered by the Social Security Administration that can be just as crucial in terms of a financial lifeline: Supplemental Security Income, commonly referred to as “SSI.”

SSI benefits are intended to help those who may not have the appropriate amount of work history to qualify to receive Social Security Disability benefits. In fact, in many cases, those who are approved to receive SSI benefits have never had a job at all due to their disabilities, while others meet the qualifying criteria that they are over the age of 65 and have limited means, or are blind.

Although SSI benefits and SSD benefits are separate programs administered by the Social Security Administration, there is one crucial similarity: applying to receive SSI benefits can be just as tricky as applying to receive SSD benefits, because the initial application and the information included in the application can make or break an Alabama resident’s attempt to be approved to receive the benefits.

At our law firm, we do our best to help Alabama residents who think they may be eligible to receive Supplemental Security Income benefits. Putting together a solid initial application can oftentimes be the best bet to be approved to receive SSI in a timely fashion.
