Supplemental Security Income For Injured Individuals

If you are disabled and unable to work, you may qualify for benefits under the Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) program.

However, many people are disabled who have not worked or who have not worked long enough to qualify for SSDI benefits. When in this situation, it is essential that you explore the possibility of obtaining Supplemental Security Income (SSI). Even if you have not worked for an extended period, you may still qualify for SSI based upon your medical condition if you have very limited income and assets.

Attorney Marjorie Drake is fluent in the language of the governmental disability benefits programs. She is able to assess your case and determine whether to pursue SSDI or SSI benefits on your behalf. Since SSI is a needs-based plan, you must show that you are financially in need of SSI benefits. Contact her office in Hartford, Connecticut, today to discuss your individual disability situation.

Helping You Obtain Supplemental Security Income

Individuals in the following situations may qualify for SSI benefits:

  • Be disabled or blind
  • Meet specific income requirements

The process for seeking SSI benefits is the same as seeking Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits. You must gather the proper documentation, have the same types of hearings, and appeal in the same way if your claim is initially denied. Marjorie Drake can explain this process and the many steps so you fully understand what is happening with your case.
