Supplemental Security Income in Las Vegas
Supplemental Security Income, or SSI, provides monthly benefits to individuals
over 65 years old, as well as adults and children who are blind or severely
disabled and can meet eligibility requirements. SSI comes from the Social
Security Administration and is financed by the general tax fund which
is why a claimant's eligibility is based on their financial need and their
Determining an Individual's Eligibility
SSI requirements include financial needs such as their permanent disability
and living arrangements, taking account of all available resources, savings,
real estate, equity, income, and benefits from other financial assistance.
SSA considers a permanent disability to be one that meets the following:
- You are prevented from carrying on in the same job you had before the injury
- You cannot take on different work responsibilities due to your condition
- You are expected to be disabled for a year or more or your disability will
lead to your death
The primary fact that the SSA considers to assess your claim is whether,
due to your medical condition, you are unable to work a full-time job
and why not? You need to nail this point to win your claim. While the
law permits individuals to file for SSI on their own, statistics indicate
that about 70% of claims are denied initially and that persons who have
the assistance of a Las Vegas Social Security disability attorney or representative
throughout the entire process have a significantly improved chance at
earlier success. We are extremely familiar with the laws that govern SSI
and are ready to actively assist you in proving to the SSA that you truly
are unable to work a full-time job.
