SSI disability Chicago

If you are disabled, you may be eligible for benefits under SSI disability in Chicago. This is a benefits program that is separate from Social Security and available to people who are over the age of 65 or have a qualifying disability. The application process is complex and having an SSI disability attorney in Chicago with extensive knowledge of the process can help you get the benefits to which you are entitled.

The SSI program is not based on contributions made to social security through payroll taxes like the Social Security Disability Insurance program. The length of time you worked or money earned has no impact on eligibility for SSI disability in Chicago. Even if haven’t worked long enough to qualify for SSDI, you may be eligible for SSI benefits for your disability.

To qualify for this program, your disability must meet the definition in order to qualify for SSI disability in Chicago. In addition, there are income requirements. SSI counts your income and portion of spouse’s income in determining eligibility. Assets are considered but assets, such as your home, car, and life insurance policy value are generally not counted against you in an evaluation to determine eligibility for SSI benefits.

An SSDI attorney in Chicago or SSI attorney can help you determine your eligibility for each program that is available to disabled people. Please contact our office to schedule a consultation. During the consultation, the attorney will evaluate your situation and explain the SSI disability process to help you understand the laws, requirements and application and review process.
