Applying? Denied? Do I Qualify?

If you are not working and you have a illness, injury or condition that you expect will keep you from working for the next 12 months then you may qualify for Social Security Supplemental Security Income (SSI).

If you have less than $2000 in assets and cash, as a single person, or $3000 in assets and cash, as a married person, you may qualify for SSI Benefits. These assets usually do not include your home, most contents in your home, and one vehicle.

If you are found disabled for Social Security Disability SSI, you may be eligible to receive Medicaid benefits.

SOCIAL SECURITY'S PROCESS TO DETERMINE WHETHER YOU ARE DISABLED:
First, Social Security determines whether or not you are doing work that involves significant physical or mental activities. This is called engaging in "substantial gainful activity" (SGA). If not, Social Security determines whether your condition or a combination of impairments is "severe." Next, Social Security decides whether your impairments are severe enough to meet or equal a listing. Please click here to see Social Security's medical listings for Adults. If your condition does not meet a listing, Social Security will determine your capacity to do physical and mental work activities. Social Security then determines whether you are capable of doing work that you substantially performed over the last 15 years prior to becoming disabled. Lastly, Social Security determines whether you are able to do any other work based on your capacity to do physical and mental work activities, your age, how much education you received and skills received during previous work experience.
