Detroit Disability Lawyer

Wayne County, Michigan, Social Security Attorney

Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a U.S. government program that provides money to help meet the basic needs of people who cannot work and have little or no income and lack other substantial resources. Unlike Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), eligibility for SSI does not require the applicant to have a prior work history.

Applying for SSI or appealing an initial claim denial can be a long, difficult and frustrating process — even for those who meet all the criteria. You do not have to do it alone. Having a skilled attorney on your side can greatly improve your chance of obtaining benefits. To learn more, please contact Adler Stilman, PLLC, now. We can tell you whether you qualify and, if you do, provide legal representation without requiring you to pay any up-front fees or costs.

Some of the basic requirements for SSI applicants include your status as a U.S. citizen or qualifying alien resident. You must also:

  • Have a qualifying medical impairment — one of a wide range of defined physical and medical conditions that keep you from working — or be over age 65
  • Own no more than a few thousand dollars worth of assets and have very limited income from any other sources including workers' compensation or a pension
