Life can be beautiful, but it can also be very hard. Depending upon many factors, a North Carolina resident may live their entire life without experience significant hardship, or they may come into the world experiencing significant barriers to their health and happiness. One important element that can make or break the ease of a person’s life is their access to a stable income. For men and women who suffer from disabilities, finding and keeping work can be next to impossible.
Certain programs offered by the Social Security Administration may be available to qualifying individuals who cannot work due to disabilities and other limiting factors. One program, known as Supplemental Security Income (SSI), is a program that individuals who are disabled, over the age of 65, or blind may apply for if they suffer from limited financial resources. If a person’s income is over a threshold limit then they may not be able to use SSI to improve their financial resources.
The Bridgman Law Offices offer support to individuals who wish to learn more about how they may benefit from SSI. While there is no guarantee that a person who applies will be approved for SSI benefits, it can help a person to discuss their rights and options with a knowledgeable legal professional before submitting their SSI paperwork.
Social Security benefits like SSI can be a life line for men and women who have few options for keeping themselves afloat in a harsh and costly world. Beginning the process can be intimidating, but with the help of a committed attorney seeking support like SSI can become a manageable experience.
