Understanding Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
For some people, Social Security Disability Insurance is not an option. People who receive SSDI have worked previously and usually have paid into the Social Security system at various times. However, some adults have basically been unable to work at any time in their lives, and have limited ability to earn any income at all. For these people, the best option is often Supplemental Security Income, also known as SSI.
Attorney Ralph W. Ellis of Atlanta helps people to apply for and receive benefits under the Supplemental Security Income system. He has worked for years to help people who need assistance to get the help they need from government programs that are designed to help them when they are disabled and unable to work, and have few other options available to them.
Is SSI The Best Option For You And Your Family?
Under SSI, people who are permanently disabled, blind or are over 65 years of age may be eligible if they have limited financial resources and income. Children who have disabilities or are blind might also qualify.
SSI is sometimes mistakenly referred to as SSI Disability, but it is not the same as Social Security Disability and is not paid out of Social Security funds. Many people get them confused, so if you are unsure which might apply to you, contact Georgia lawyer Ralph W. Ellis for a complimentary consultation about your case.
