Supplemental Security Income

 Supplemental Security Income disability payments and Medicaid insurance are available to individuals who meet the Administration’s guidelines under Title XVI of the Social Security Act. They are different from Social Security Disability and Retirement benefits. If you are a child, or an adult who has not earned a sufficient number of credits within the 10 years before becoming disabled, meet the Administration’s rules for Childhood or Adult Disability, and do not have resources in excess of the limits, you can be awarded these benefits. In order to win your claim for benefits, you must successfully navigate the process from initial claim, through the state Disability Determination Section reviews, Administrative Law Judge hearing and appeals if necessary. To win, you must provide medical records and opinions proving disability. SSA and their state contractors look for evidence that your medical conditions are not severe or disabling, and call your credibility into question. We assist our clients by obtaining your medical, psychological, school and employment records to support your claim. We work with your doctors and/or examiners and specialists to obtain the professional opinions needed to satisfy the regulations. We go to your hearing with you, and question you and any other witnesses and experts testifying to support or refute your claim. If your claim is denied, we will handle your appeals. There is no cost or obligation to meet with you and evaluate your disability claim. Call us at (731) 660-5691 or email
