Expert SSD Lawyers at Newlin Disability


Suffering from an injury or medical condition that leaves you unable to work can put serious financial strains on your family. Even if you qualify for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits, that may not be enough.

Whether you qualify for SSD or not, you may be eligible to receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI). These cash payments are available to people with limited income resources who are blind, elderly, or disabled. Qualifying for the program may automatically open doors to other benefits as well.

The Social Security Administration explains that SSI recipients are also eligible for Medicaid insurance coverage. Other state funded programs may be able to assist with paying medical coverage premiums.

SSI recipients may also qualify for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), which provides food assistance. Individuals receiving SSI may also be eligible for grants from the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families fund, which can be used to pay everyday expenses.

At Newlin Disability, we know the options that are available to the disabled can be confusing. That’s why we suggest speaking with a Social Security Disability lawyer if you are considering applying for SSI benefits or have a claim that was denied in the past.
