No Work History? You Can Still Get Help.
If you do not have a solid work history and are unable to work to earn income for your essential needs such as food, shelter and clothing, you may qualify to receive financial assistance from the Social Security Administration (SSA) under the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program. You can get help for completing your application from an experienced attorney. You may also have an attorney request a reconsideration of a denial or appeal on your behalf.
At The Law Offices of M. D. Breaux, LLC, attorney Michael D. Breaux will treat you like family. He gets that the struggle is real for you. Helping people with disabilities for more than two decades, he understands how cold the representatives at SSA can appear at first. Mr. Breaux has a solid relationship with the agency’s workers. He knows how to provide the information the agency needs and how to communicate your dire need for assistance.
How Do I Know If I Qualify For SSI?
SSA generally rejects a high percentage of applications for SSI, even when a disability is obvious or a treating physician’s records indicate a certain disabling condition will last longer than a year or will result in death.
Some of the basic eligibility requirements include:
- A proven disability, blindness or be at least 65 years old
- Limited or no income, pension or wages
- The total value of your resources is under $2,000 or $3,000 if you are married
U.S. citizens, nationals of the United States and some noncitizens between the ages of 18 and 65 can apply for SSI. Some exceptions apply.
In your application, you will have to provide:
- Proof of your age
- Your Social Security number
- Information about your housing circumstances
- Bank account numbers
- Insurance policies
- All other sources of income you have
- Information about your disabilities
- A list of all prescriptions you are taking
- A detailed list of your health care providers and any clinics and hospitals where you were treated for your disabilities
Your health care providers will need to submit information separately to SSA about your disability. Many applications subject to denial because they are incomplete. You can count on Mr. Breaux to be at your side every step of the way.
