How Supplemental Security Income Works

If you have been unable to work and pay into the Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) system and require Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits, we are ready to help you with your application.

The SSI benefits system is very similar to applying for SSDI, except that you will not have to demonstrate a record of previous employment and you must demonstrate financial need.

Learn about the cost of our services.

Call us for a free consultation to discuss Supplemental Security Income. We can talk with you about your options and the process for filing an initial application. If you decide we are the right law firm to help you with your claim, we will handle the details on your behalf.


If you have received a denial letter from the SSA, bring it to us. Our attorneys will review the reasons for denial and begin to work right away to file an appeal.

Special note to people who qualify for SSDI benefits
Just because you worked and are receiving SSDI benefits for your disability, it does not mean you do not qualify for further financial assistance through SSI. We can review your records and circumstances to determine what government programs will affect your eligibility to receive Supplemental Security Income.
