Obtaining SSI may be easier with dedicated help


When people in Pennsylvania need Social Security disability benefits, it is often because they are unable to work. They often suffer from a serious disability that impedes many aspects of their life. While people who were able to work at one time may qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance benefits, others will not qualify for that program. They may not have enough work credits because of a lack of work history to qualify for SSDI.

In these cases, people may want to consider Supplemental Security Income. The SSI program is for disabled people who cannot work and have very limited resources. This program can help these individuals get the income they need to survive. A variety of people can qualify for the program including disabled children, disabled adults, blind children and adults and people over the age of 65.

However, even if people qualify for the program, they need to apply for the benefits. This application process can be rigorous and requires people to disclose information about their disability and their financial situation. Individuals need to have a firm grasp on the process in order for it to be completed correctly. If people make mistakes on the application -- by not providing enough evidence of disability, for example -- then their benefits may be delayed or denied altogether. People who qualify for SSI often cannot risk waiting for benefits.

Therefore, people may want to seek help in order to complete the application process. An attorney may be able to help people understand the program's requirements. They can also ensure that they have submitted enough medical records, financial records and other evidence to prove their case.

The attorneys at Kransno, Kransno & Onwudinjo have years of experiencing in helping Pennsylvania residents apply for SSI benefits. We know what is required to actually receive benefits and to appeal a denial of benefits. Additionally, we understand how important these benefits are for people.
