SSI Benefits Explained

Supplemental Security Income or SSI is a benefit program for people with low income and limited resources. Children with disabilities may also qualify for SSI benefits. Unlike Social Security Disability, there is no work history requirement and the applicant does not have to have paid into Social Security.

The Lawyers of Brown & Roberto help people throughout Tennessee who have been turned down for SSI benefits. Our attorneys are experienced and committed to helping our clients receive the disability compensation they deserve. We offer a free initial consultation to discuss SSI eligibility and answer your questions.

What Benefits Does SSI Provide?

SSI provides money to provide clothing, food and shelter. Your SSI benefits can fluctuate from month to month, based on changes in your life. For example, if you work part-time, that income will be counted. If you move in with someone, that person’s income will be counted as your income. SSI recipients are also eligible for Medicaid.

How Do I Apply for Supplemental Security Income?

You apply for SSI benefits by completing a claim form and submitting the necessary medical records at your local Social Security Administration office. For more information, visit the Social Security Administration website. Unfortunately, most applicants are initially turned down by Social Security. It often takes a lawyer’s help to obtain the benefits you deserve.

Client Reviews

"We tried to go through the insurance company ourselves, but they basically just laughed at us. So I got in touch with The Lawyers of Brown & Roberto. The insurance company's attitude really changed, and within a week we had our car replaced and rehabilitation going for my wife. The Lawyers of Brown & Roberto stuck in there and fought for us." J. Felver

"Had it not been for The Lawyers of Brown & Roberto, I would be in a mess. I would not have been able to handle the paper work or things that would have been required to stand in a court of law myself. They got the most that I could have gotten for any injury that I had. I was more than pleased with the settlement. They handled my case promptly and very professionally." D. Blakeman
