Nashville Supplemental Security Income Lawyers

You may be eligible for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits if you’re disabled and unable to work. Unlike Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits, SSI eligibility is based on financial need and does not require that you have worked for a certain period of time to be eligible for compensation.

The Nashville Supplemental Security Income lawyers at Ponce Law can help you apply for SSI benefits or prepare an appeal if you’ve already been denied. We’re available to take your call anytime—just dial (800) 363-9113 or fill out a free initial consultation form, and get the legal help you need.

Understanding SSI Benefits

To be considered eligible for SSI benefits, the Social Security Administration (SSA) has several requirements. You may be qualified to receive benefits if you’re:

  • age 65 or older,
  • blind or vision impaired,
  • or if you’re suffering from a disability lasting — or that’s expected to last — at least one year, or will result in death.

When you apply, Tennessee Disability Determination Services (DDS) reviews your application to determine if you’re eligible to receive benefits. It often takes months for DDS to issue a decision, and a mistake or omission during the application process can cause further delays.
