Supplemental Security Income (SSI) Benefits Claims
What is Supplemental Security Income (SSI)?
Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a Federal income supplement program funded by general tax revenues, not Social Security taxes. Unlike Social Security Disability Income (SSDI), with the SSI program there is no requirement to have worked in the past and paid into the program. The SSI program is designated to help disabled, aged, and blind people who have little or no income. Also, it provides cash to meet basic needs for food, shelter and clothing. Furthermore, SSI benefits are available to adults over the age of 65 without disabilities who meet the financial limits established by the Social Security Administration (SSA).
How Do I Apply?
If you believe that you qualify for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits, you need to initiate the process by submitting a claim to the Social Security Administration (SSA).
Indiana residents that become disabled should file an application for Social Security disability benefits with the SSA immediately.
Applications can be submitted online at SSA's website, by calling the SSA at 1-800-772-1213 to set up an appointment, or visit your local Social Security Office to apply in person. If you have questions regarding the claims process, contact the law office of Scott D. Lewis at (317) 423-8888.
