It can be very difficult for any individual in Pennsylvania to live with a disability. The very nature of the disability is that it will restrict a person’s ability to live normally. However, the disability’s disadvantages can be exaggerated when individuals do not have the financial resources to properly treat their conditions. Additionally, even if people have medical resources, but are unable to afford other daily necessities, life can become very difficult. In the United States, there are social networks and financial assistance available to individuals in this situation.
In particular, Supplemental Security Income can help individuals struggling with instability and who have limited financial resources. This money can often be a person’s only source of reliable income.
SSI benefits are available to a variety of individuals. Typically, disabled children and adults, blind children and adults and adults over the age of 65 can qualify for these benefits. Additionally, there are income and resource limitations that must be taken into account. Medicaid eligibility often does not hamper a person’s ability to obtain these benefits.
However, the application process is not always straightforward. There are legal hoops that must be jumped through in order for an application to be approved. In many cases, working with an attorney can help individuals successfully apply for SSI benefits.
