Facts About SSI
Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a type of monthly payment granted
to qualifying persons. It is administered by the Social Security Administration
but is a separate program from
social security disability (SSD). Generally, it is paid to those that have a low income and few resources.
If you are considering applying for SSI, it can improve your chances for
success to have the assistance of a qualified
Arkansas social security disability lawyer. I can work to ensure you are qualified and that your claim is properly filed.
The basic amount a person is paid by SSI is standard throughout the U.S.
In certain cases, our state may be able to add to the benefits you receive.
At The Law Office of Mike Angel, I personally work to ensure that your
case is given the priority it deserves and that you receive the full income
allowable by the law. In order to see if you are qualified, the Social
Security Administration is going to look at two major areas; your income
and the resources that you currently have. I use my 20 years of legal
experience towards making certain that the information supplied to the
government is complete, accurate and will help to make your case.
Income and Resources
By income is meant wages you receive,
Social Security benefits and any pensions. It can also include food and shelter, in some cases.
There are items such as food stamps, shelter you get from private nonprofit
organizations, home energy assistance and others that will not count towards
your income. If you are married, your spouse's income will be part
of what the Social Security Administration will review in order to determine
The resources that will be looked at for eligibility are items such as
cash, stocks and bonds, bank accounts and real estate holdings. In most
cases your vehicle, the home you live in and the land it is on, burial
plots and life insurance up to a certain amount, will not be considered
a resource. Obtaining SSI can significantly improve the quality of your
life and your financial security. I would like to assist you in achieving
this worthwhile objective.
