Ozaukee County Social Security Disability benefits attorney

The Social Security Administration (SSA) provides two types of benefit programs to adults and children who may need financial assistance if they are disabled and unable to work. The SSA’s Social Security disability insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) programs both provide benefits, but the eligibility requirements for the two differ. In some situations, a child who is disabled may be eligible for benefits under the SSI program. However, there is a process that must be followed and documentation that must be completed before such benefits can be paid.

Eligibility Requirements  

In order for a child to be eligible to receive benefits from the SSI program, he or she must be under the age of 18 or 22 if he or she is enrolled in school, has a debilitating illness, disability, or condition, and falls within the income eligibility limits. Income limits for a child who is not blind state that the child cannot earn more than $1,260 a month in 2020, while a child who is blind cannot earn more than $2,110 a month.

Milwaukee County social security disability attorney

The Social Security Administration (SSA) exists to help Americans when they need it the most. Two of the administration’s most popular programs, social security disability insurance (SSDI) and supplemental security income (SSI), are both available to disabled individuals who have little to no financial resources. Eligibility requirements differ for the programs, which is why some individuals may qualify for one program but not the other. One of the requirements involves how much an individual worked before he or she was injured or became ill. Not having enough work experience can be one reason why your SSDI claim may be denied.

Understanding SSA Work Credits

In order to receive benefits through the SSA, you must have worked a certain period of time and earned enough money to be eligible. The SSA measures your contributions through work credits, which are based on your total yearly income. One work credit is earned when you make $1,410 in wages, but you can only earn up to four work credits per year. Once you have earned $5,640, you have earned your four work credits for the year.
