Fort Wayne Supplemental Security Income Lawyer Working for You

To be eligible for Social Security benefits, either SSD or SSI, you must be disabled. While there are other employment-based requirements to be eligible for SSD, SSI is needs-based.

To receive Supplemental Security Income, you must, of course, show that you are disabled. You must also show that you have been unable to work and pay into the Social Security system for the time period required to be eligible for Social Security Disability benefits. Many people are surprised that little more than half a year of unemployment can cause ineligibility for SSD. That is why SSI benefits are so important, particularly in these challenging economic times.

We help you demonstrate eligibility, working hard to see that you get the benefits you need to be able to live a comfortable life, regardless of your disability.
