People in the United States who are ages (65+), blind, disabled, or have little, or no income are often able to receive monthly financial benefits through the Supplemental Security Income program. SSI benefits are available to low-income seniors who have either never worked or haven’t worked long enough to qualify for SSDI – a similar program that the Social Security Administration also administers.

There are two main requirements for proving that you are entitled to SSI benefits:
First, you must have a disability that inhibits your ability to work – as defined by the Social Security Administration. The law defines “disability” as the inability to engage in any “substantial gainful activity” due to a physical or mental impairment that is predicted to last for over 12 months or result in death.
Second, SSI benefits are only available to disabled individuals who fall below a federally established income threshold. Generally speaking, you must have little or no income and few assets to your name. Many states, like New Mexico, provide supplemental payments to SSI recipients that can change the income threshold that specifically applies to you. Our SSI attorneys and lawyers in Albuquerque are extremely knowledgeable with respect to this and similar technical matters that can affect your SSI eligibility.
