Teaching Tennessee residents the value of SSI benefits

Almost every Tennessee resident probably knows about Social Security payments once a worker retires. Disability benefits, on the other hand, are less well known, although Social Security Disability Insurance benefits help thousands of injured and ill residents every year. There is, however, one more insurance program under the Social Security Administration's care that offers benefits for the poorest state residents: Supplemental Security Income. Our Chattanooga law firm has not only taught many Tennessee residents the value of SSI benefits, but also helped them obtain those benefits.

SSI is a needs-based program primarily for disabled individuals 65 years older, usually people who suffer from blindness and who have few assets and little income. Children can also qualify for the benefits. The requirements seem straightforward. For example, the threshold for assets a single individual can own is set at $2,000-and $3,000 for married applicants-but some assets are not included in the limit. Our lawyers have helped many people effectively meet the benefit requirements.

Like those who apply for SSDI benefits, SSI applicants can face problems with the application process and be denied legitimate claims. Unfortunately, denied claims deprive worthy applicants of benefits and often mean delays in medical treatment. Understanding the nature of the problem and how to approach it, our lawyers have efficiently and effectively filed many appeals on behalf of Tennessee residents. Because there is limited time in which to appeal a denial, it can be important to file one immediately. Our Chattanooga-based law firm has guided not only Tennessee residents through this process, but also nearby residents of Georgia and Alabama, in their pursuits to obtain SSI benefits.
