Orange County Medicaid Insurance Lawyers
Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a program administered by the Social Security Administration to assist aged or disabled people who have little or no income. If you are receiving a low amount of SSDI benefits you may be eligible for some SSI. If you are unsure about whether you qualify or have recently been denied benefits, it is important that you seek the advice of an experienced lawyer as soon as possible.
At the law firm of Bohm Kalish, APC, we work diligently to help every client gain access to all of the benefits available to them. Our California & National SSI attorneys have extensive experience in these matters. We are prepared to step in and assist you at any stage in the process, from your initial application for benefits through reconsideration and appeals.
Understanding Your Rights to SSI Benefits
People seeking SSI benefits must meet certain criteria in order to be eligible. If you own more than $2,000 worth of assets, or if you have too much money coming in from other sources you will not be eligible to receive benefits. If you are approved for benefits, you will receive a fixed amount each month. SSI benefit recipients also have access to Medicaid and food stamps.
If you have applied for SSI benefits and were denied, you have the right to request a reconsideration. We will provide a thorough evaluation of your claim and give you an honest assessment of its merit. If we are not successful at the reconsideration, we will appeal the decision and take it all the way to federal court if necessary.
