To find out if you are eligible, contact the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) lawyers at Morgan & Weisbrod, LLP in Dallas and Houston, Texas, today. We provide effective legal advice to disabled people.
Supplemental Security Income (SSI), also known as Title XVI benefits, is based on financial need. It is a welfare-type benefit. It is designed to provide income for elderly, blind, and disabled people who have little or no income and do not have a work history that would qualify them for SSDI benefits. SSI benefits provide income to meet the basic needs for food, clothing, and shelter.
Many SSI recipients have never worked or have not worked enough to qualify for SSDI.
You may be able to receive SSI benefits based on your income in addition to SSDI benefits, based on your disability. In these cases, you would receive checks from both programs each month.
Our attorneys can help you apply for SSI or apply at the same time for SSI and SSDI benefits.
