Supplemental Security Income Advocacy
Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a needs-based program to help meet the costs of basic needs for those with little or no income and resources. SSI disability benefits are payable to adults or children who are disabled and are otherwise eligible. The monthly payment varies up to the maximum federal benefit rate, which may be supplemented by the States or decreased by available income and resources.
Harold W. Conick & Associates Ltd. will support your claim for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits in addition to Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) Benefits. While SSDI is based on prior work under Social Security, SSI payments are made on the basis of financial need. Although there are differences in these two programs, both require you to meet the Social Security Administration’s definition of disability:
- You must be unable to do any substantial work because of your medical condition(s)
- Your medical condition(s) must have lasted, or be expected to last at least one year, or expected to result in death.
