Are You Eligible For Supplemental Security Income (SSI)?

If you are 65 or older or disabled, and have limited income and resources, and you have never worked, did not work very much, or last worked a long time ago, you may be eligible for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits. Do not delay — seek help from an experienced lawyer who can help you obtain the needed benefits you may be entitled to by law.

Determining Your Eligibility For SSI Benefits

Supplemental Security Income is a federal program designed to help people who are disabled, blind, or aged and who have little to no income or other resources. Some of the major requirements for SSI eligibility include:

  • Being 65 or older, blind, or with a disability that keeps you from doing any substantially gainful activity for at least a year
  • Having limited income and assets
  • Being a U.S. citizen or in a certain category of "qualified aliens"
  • Being a resident of one of the 50 states, Washington, D.C. or the Northern Mariana Islands
  • Not being recently absent from the U.S. for more than a certain period of time
  • SSI benefits are also available for disabled children

Since 1987, attorney Carla J. Thomas has handled hundreds of Supplemental Security Income claims. She works closely with each client to understand their disability and unique circumstances. She reviews every piece of evidence and works closely with clients' medical doctors, physical therapists, caregivers, chiropractors, and others to build a record demonstrating that they meet all of the eligibility requirements for SSI.

Attorney Thomas can represent you in the SSI application process and at all required hearings. If your Supplemental Security Income claim is denied, Thomas & Thomas Attorneys At Law will quickly file a hearing request or an appeal.

We accept SSDI claims on a contingency basis — you will pay no fee unless we recover compensation for you. Contact Thomas & Thomas Attorneys At Law today to schedule a free initial consultation by calling 610-559-9271.
