Supplemental Security Income Lawyer in Dalton

Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a federal program that provides monthly benefits to the elderly, the blind and the disabled. This program differs from Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) in that only individuals with limited financial resources may qualify.

The process of applying for and receiving SSI benefits can be complicated and most initial applicants are denied for any number of reasons. That is why it is important to have experienced legal representation in your corner to help guide you through this process. I am Trevor A. Brown, a Supplemental Security Income attorney in Dalton. With more than a decade of legal experience helping people throughout northwest Georgia, I understand how to best handle SSI claims so you have the best possible chance of obtaining the benefits you need and deserve.

How Is SSI Different From SSDI?

The main difference between Supplemental Security Income and Social Security Disability Insurance is that SSI is needs-based. That is, there are certain income restrictions that must be met before a person may be eligible for this program.

In order to qualify for SSI, your disability must be one that qualifies for SSDI benefits. You must also have limited income and resources in order to meet the additional requirements of the SSI program. In some cases, it is possible to qualify for both SSI and SSDI benefits. I have extensive experience handling both types of claims. I can evaluate your situation, explain the best path to take and help you pursue the maximum benefits that you are entitled to under the law.
