We Handle Supplemental Security Income Claims
Get the benefits you need with an attorney from our firm
For some people, being disabled means not being able to pay for basic needs like food, clothing and shelter. That's why the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program exists: to provide those people with the lifeline they need to keep moving forward.
While Social Security Disability (SSD) is funded by payroll deductions, SSI is funded through general tax revenue. People who have never been able to work and pay into the SSD pool can still get the benefits they need through SSI.
However, the process of collecting SSI benefits can be difficult and confusing. That's why you need us. We've been serving the Weirton area since 1952, and attorney Steven M. Recht can help you get the benefits you need.
Who is eligible for SSI benefits?
In general, you may be eligible for SSI if you have never been able to work, have worked only for a brief time or worked but did not pay into the Social Security pool due to the nature of your employment. Some people who may be eligible for SSI include:
- Self-employed people
- Business owners
- In some cases, children
We know that the prospect of hiring an attorney can be intimidating for people in need of disability benefits. That's why we accept SSI cases on a contingency fee basis. You pay no fees up front, and we only charge a fixed percentage of your benefits if we win your case.
