Countless low-income Americans count on Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits for their basic financial needs. Whether you are over 65, have a medical condition which prevents you from working, or are blind, SSI can provide vital assistance to help you support yourself. At the same time, the application process can be extremely daunting—leading many qualifying individuals to go without the benefits they need. For over 40 years, Drew L. Johnson, P.C. Attorneys at Law has helped Oregonians successfully claim SSI benefits.
In order to qualify for SSI, you must have income under a certain level and either be age 65 or older, disabled with a qualifying condition, or blind. Along with strict income requirements, there are also restrictions on how many assets you can have. If you apply successfully, the amount of money you receive each month will take into account any other assistance you receive.
