What is Supplemental Security Income?

Our Lawyers Want You To Get The Best Benefits

Severe financial hardship is only compounded by the loss of your job. When a mental or physical disability causes you to lose your income, you may qualify for Supplemental Security Income (SSI).

What is Supplemental Security Income?

SSI is a program managed by the Social Security Administration (SSA). To qualify, you must prove you have a disability that prevents you from holding a job. Your personal assets must also be limited. The Grove City attorneys at Jeffrey Buskirk & Associates understand your unique medical and financial situation. We know that you are suffering from physical, emotional and financial stress. Our lawyers want you to get benefits to help improve your life.

What Are You Entitled To?

When you qualify for SSI benefits, you will receive a monthly benefit payment. You may also be entitled to back pay. These back pay payments can be used to pay doctor bills, household bills or for any other needs.

How Can We Help?

The process to qualify for SSI can be long and difficult. To prove your disability, you need medical records that outline how you are disabled. When filing for SSI benefits, our attorneys can help you with your claim by:
  • Collecting all of your medical and financial records.
  • Getting functional capacity reports from your doctors. These reports detail your impairment — what you can and cannot do physically or mentally.
  • Submitting a brief to the SSA. The brief includes a summary of your medical records and explains why you are disabled under the social security rules.
