Helping Clients Get the Benefits They Deserve
Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a type of government-provided disability benefit that can be issued in conjunction with Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits. SSI benefits are based on disability and financial need, while SSD is available to people of all income levels who cannot work due to disability.
If you are in need of SSI benefits in addition to SSD benefits for a disability, turn to Burge & Burge, PC, in Birmingham, Alabama. Our firm is skilled at handling both SSD and SSI application processes and helping our clients to understand how they may be eligible for both.

What Is Supplemental Security Income (SSI)?
SSI is a need-based program for people who are unable to work due to a disability. In addition to proving that your medical condition prevents you from working, you have to demonstrate your financial need for SSI. Occasionally, a person with a low income will be eligible for SSD benefits and additional payments from the SSI program.
Supplemental Security Income benefits are also available to a child younger than 18 if he or she meets the Social Security Administration's definition of disability for children, and if his or her income and resources are within the eligibility limits.
Whether you believe you are eligible for SSI benefits or not, let our attorneys assess your situation and determine which type of benefits you are most likely to be granted. We have years of experience handling disability benefits cases and can be an advocate for you.
