SSI is a needs-based program that provides benefits to those who are disabled and have limited income and financial resources. At Disability Claim Consultants, we help people in Omaha and the surrounding areas of Nebraska and western Iowa who need additional financial assistance to meet their family's needs. We provide caring, yet aggressive, representation to obtain the benefits you deserve.
As your advocate, we eliminate the confusion of government red tape and mountains of paperwork involved in applying for Social Security benefits. We can take this burden from you, working diligently to obtain the benefits you deserve.
Most people who qualify for SSI have not worked extensively in the past, or they do not have the "insured status" needed to apply for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits. In general, you are eligible to seek SSI benefits if you as an individual have less than $2,000 in assets or your family has less than $4,000 in household assets such as, but not limited to:
In addition to meeting these income requirements, applicants for SSI must provide extensive medical evidence of their condition. Our Omaha Supplemental Security Income consultants can help you gather this evidence and represent you throughout the entire process from start to finish if you need to appeal a denied SSI claim.
Unlike Medicaid assistance, SSI benefits provide general financial assistance for your family when you cannot work because of a disability. Medicaid is used specifically to pay for your doctor visits, medications and other health care services. If you do not have health insurance or cannot afford the medical treatment for your condition, we can refer to programs in your area that may be able to help you with medical treatment.
Similar to SSI for adults, SSI benefits for children help low-income families manage the increased care costs of raising a child with disabilities. We will help you as a parent or legal guardian navigate the application process - as well as the appeals process, if necessary - to obtain the benefits your child needs and deserves.
