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:

  • a U.S citizen or fall into a qualified category of non-citizen,
  • age 65 or older,
  • blind or vision impaired,
  • living on a limited income and with limited resources (such as personal property, life insurance, or anything which could be converted to cash and used for food or shelter)
  • 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.

Why You Need an SSI Lawyer

The process for applying for SSI benefits can be both difficult and time-consuming. Many SSI claims are initially denied because the burden of proof is on the applicant. You will need to prove that you are 1. disabled, and 2. in financial need. Failing to prove one of the two can cause your application for Supplemental Security Income to be denied. It may even be denied on a minor paperwork technicality.

Your chances of getting your application approved may increase when you use a lawyer. When you hire an SSI lawyer, they can:

  • Review your case
  • Ensure your application is complete
  • Help you obtain documentation that proves your eligibility, such as pay stubs and medical records
  • Meet necessary deadlines
  • Communicate with the SSA
  • File appeals
  • Represent you in disability hearings
  • Prepare you for questions you may be asked

Yes, everyone can afford a Social Security lawyer. Our SSI lawyers don’t collect any pay from you unless they help you win your disability claim. You will pay no upfront fees to speak to a lawyer with our firm, or for their help in filing your application or appeal.

    Always very professional. When we first called we had no idea if we even had a case, they told us we did. And even though the resolution took a little bit longer than expected, the wait was worth it. They get results and I really appreciated that they consistently gave me updates on the status of my case without me even asking. Thank you Ponce Law!

    My son was on a school bus… The school bus was hit… He was taken by ambulance to Vanderbilt. A friend of mine, here in town, owns a hair salon. And she had recommended him. So I actually sent Mr. Ponce a message on Facebook. He said he would love to help! And you know, asked me for some more details. And I’ll give them to him. Some things were sent electronically. That I could just go online and do. And it would be done with! Even the times that I have come into the office. I’m not stuck sitting out in the waiting room forever. I’m brought straight back. And within a minute or two… We were already started!

    The day of my accident, I was riding my scooter and then all sudden… The car just popped out of that other oncoming traffic. As far as trying to find a lawyer… It seemed like we could do it on our own… But it still seemed so iffy! I asked a friend what he thought, they’d mentioned Michael Ponce. And then when it was mentioned… It wasn’t with like… any hesitation. You should call Ponce Law because they will exceed your expectations.
