Supplemental Security Income (SSI): Understanding the Basics
Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a federal insurance program that provides much needed financial assistance to qualifying older adults and people with disabilities. It is important to emphasize the distinction between SSI claims and SSDI claims. Unlike with Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), eligibility for SSI benefits is based on a person’s work history. You cannot be denied SSI benefits simply because you lack sufficient work credits. Instead, eligibility is based solely on:
- Age/Disability Status: To be eligible for SSI benefits, an applicant must be older than 65 or disabled.
- Financial Need: SSI claims are subject to strict income and asset tests. You can be denied benefits if your income is too high or you have too many non-exempt assets.
You Have the Right to Appeal an Adverse Decision
The SSI claims process is complicated. Unfortunately, obtaining benefits can be challenging—even for applicants who meet the government’s eligibility standards. Indeed, more than 70 percent of initial applications are denied. If your Supplemental Security Income claim was denied, you still have options available.
At this point in the process, you need to take immediate action to preserve your rights. Do not miss out on your opportunity for a full hearing. Contact an experienced Arkansas SSI attorney who can review your case, gather supporting evidence, and help you build a winning appeal.
