Eligibility requirements for SSI

There is nothing more disheartening than being unable to support one's self with the money one makes from a job. For some Charlotte residents, working hard and saving is all that must be done to ensure that their bills will be paid and their needs will be met. Others may not be able to work due to disability and may not have support systems that can help them stay afloat.

Men, women and children who have disabilities and limited financial means may be able to apply for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) from the Social Security Administration. There are different eligibility requirements for different populations and this post will only discuss the general requirements for a disabled adult who desires to obtain SSI.

An unmarried adult between the ages of 18 and 65 who suffers from a disability may complete an online application for SSI if certain conditions are met. The individual must not be blind and they must reside in the United States. The applicant must also apply for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) at the time they apply for SSI and the applicant also must not have applied for SSI in the past.

If any of these specific conditions are not met a person may have their application for SSI benefits denied. Fulfilling the stringent requirements of the SSI application process can be difficult and in some cases overwhelming for a person who simply needs help getting by. In order to prepare a strong application for SSI, SSDI and other benefits many disabled Americans work with Social Security disability benefits attorneys who make it their mission to serve individuals who are struggling on their own.
