Claiming Supplemental Security Income Benefits in Pennsylvania, Ohio & West Virginia
Unlike Social Security Disability insurance, which requires applicants to have a significant work history, Supplemental Security Income benefits may be awarded to anyone who is disabled and meets the program's need-based criteria, even if they've never worked a day in their life.
Eligibility for Supplemental Security Income is determined by the income and assets of your household, not including your home itself. To find out if you are eligible for this program — call or contact our law firm and have your case evaluated by an experienced Pittsburgh SSI lawyer at no cost or obligation whatsoever.

In fact, we have helped thousands of individuals with their SSD and SSI claims over the last two decades by using a team approach that enhances our ability to provide personal attention to every client — a commitment that has consistently resulted in SSI approvals as well.

As the term "supplemental" suggests, SSI is not intended to provide for all of a disabled person's needs.
Our firm takes SSI claims at every stage of the process. We can represent you with your initial claim and handle any appeals of denied claims. If you have a significant work history in the last five years, it is always wise to apply for both SSD and SSI benefits. In other words, whatever your situation is, we feel confident in our ability to help you too.
