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 that could be converted to cash and used for food or shelter)
  • 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 of 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 in Nashville, 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
