Seeking Supplemental Security Income Benefits

The cost of living in America is constantly increasing — and if you're unable to work, you'll quickly fall behind. Unfortunately, the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits that could ease your burden aren't always as dependable — or easy to obtain — as you might think.

At Rone & Kowalski, LLC, our Social Security benefits attorneys believe that the disabled in South Jersey deserve more reliable opportunities to obtain financial aid. We've been fighting on behalf of regular families for more than 25 years to help them surmount the challenges of the SSI system. Our team members love applying their vast knowledge to complex tasks, like filing claims and representing benefits seekers in their appeals.

Who Can Seek SSI?

SSI is designed to help those who are routinely contend with difficulties like income limitations and insufficient material resources. When used successfully, the program can reduce the costs of necessities like housing, clothing and food. You may be eligible for benefits if you're:

  • An adult with a disability or blindness that prevents you from working
  • A disabled child
  • An individual above the age of 65

Like other Social Security benefit initiatives, SSI requires that applicants prove their eligibility before they receive any assistance. For some, this process can be a complex hurdle that involves denials, appeals and multiple consultations with doctors.

Our attorneys are sensitive to the fact that you may not have the time or energy to go through such a stressful experience. We may not be able to shoulder the burden for you, but thanks to our deep-seated practice experience, we're confident we can help you chart a course that makes SSI as straightforward as possible.

Don't Let The Benefits Process Overwhelm You

It's important to understand that SSI is an income-based benefits program. This means that even if you meet other requirements for being disabled or are of the appropriate age, you still might be deemed ineligible if you make too much money. Unfortunately, the threshold may not be high enough to ensure that you get the relief you require.

Supplemental Security Income is supposed to help you achieve something better for yourself, not contribute to the stress you already face.
