Supplemental Security Income eligibility

If you are a disabled person living in the state of Indiana, it is important that you know what your rights are to benefits. If you are struggling to gain a meaningful income because of your disability, it is likely that you will be entitled to Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits. These benefits are generally allocated on a needs basis.

What conditions qualify me to receive disability benefits?

If you're suffering from a medical condition listed in what's colloquially known as the Social Security Administration's (SSA) "blue book," there's a strong likelihood that you may qualify to receive disability benefits.

Expedited payments and Supplemental Security Income

If you are a recipient of Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or you are working on your SSI application, there may be a way for you to receive the payments earlier than usual. The Social Security Administration (SSA) understands that some people are struggling financially as a result of their disability, and therefore, in some situations, they make it possible to receive early payments in a number of ways.

Social Security benefits for your autistic child

If you have a child who is on the autism spectrum, it is likely that you are in need of additional services and support to help give your child the best possible start in life. Therefore, you might be struggling with a financial burden that you wouldn't have had otherwise.

Reasons why your disability benefits were denied

If you have recently filed for disability benefits with the Social Security Administration (SSA) and they were denied, it's safe to say that you are disappointed, frustrated and confused. There are quite a few reasons why your benefits claim might have been denied. Today, we will take a look at those reasons.

Explaining Supplemental Security Income

Adults and children who are disabled and have limited income resources can apply for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) from the Social Security Administration (SSA). These benefits can also be paid out to seniors over the age of 65 who meet the financial requirements even if they are not disabled. This program is funded by revenue from general taxes, not Social Security tax.
