Financial Protection For Disabled People
If a disability has prevented you or a loved one from ever earning an income, you may have options to provide yourself with food, shelter and other necessities. Even if you have been denied approval for Supplemental Security Income in the past, the Los Angeles law office of Jerry Persky will help you fight for your rightful benefits. We serve clients in the entire L.A. area, including San Bernardino County and Riverside.
SSI Benefits vs. SSDI Benefits
Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits work differently than Social Security Disability Insurance benefits. Though both are federal programs for people who cannot work due to a disability, SSI is not limited to people who were previously able to work. Instead, SSI is a needs-based program for those who have an extremely limited work history because of a long-term disability.
To qualify, an applicant cannot have more than $2,000 in assets or resources such as financial support from relatives, loans or pensions. If you are not sure whether you qualify, talk to us. Attorney Jerry J. Persky has been practicing Supplemental Security Income since 1981. He will explain the intricacies of SSI law in clear, honest language so you will understand your next steps.
Fight To Keep Your Benefits
Even after being approved for benefits, you may face termination if SSA accuses you of having excessive income. This can be a frightening prospect, but you can fight back with the help of our lawyer. We will show the agency that you still qualify for SSI benefits.
