Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
Oklahoma City Social Security Disability Lawyers
Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a federal program that offers financial assistance to elderly and disabled people who do not have the income to support themselves. While Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) only covers completely disabled persons who have spent a certain amount of time working and paying Social Security taxes, Supplemental Security Income is provided based upon financial need.
To be eligible for Supplemental Security Income, an applicant must be blind, over the age of 65 or disabled. If you qualify for Supplemental Security Income, you may also immediately qualify for Medicare.
