Ohio Attorneys Who Know the Requirements for SSI
Obtaining Social Security Disability benefits can be time-consuming and stressful. The process for getting Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits can be even more burdensome. In addition to the medical evidence you need to demonstrate the severity of your condition, you must also provide financial data showing that your income and assets do not exceed the limits for SSI. At Garson Johnson LLC, our Ohio lawyers understand the SSI application process. We help clients through this difficult process.

Your Disability Status
SSI benefits are available to blind, disabled and elderly people with limited income and resources. If you are disabled, you must provide proof that your medical condition meets the Social Security Administration's definition of "disabled." This may require extensive medical documentation and an explanation of your current health status. Our lawyers will help you gather the proper evidence to demonstrate your disability status.
SSI Financial Criteria
If your health condition meets the government's criteria, you must still be able to show that your assets and income do not exceed the limit laid down by the SSA. Assets include all of the cash, personal property, life insurance and other things you own that could be used to pay for your basic needs. Income includes everything from salary and gifts from friends and family, to workers' compensation benefits, retirement benefits and Social Security benefits. If you are entitled to other forms of relief and have not applied for them, your claim will be denied until you have exhausted your other options. Our firm can help you obtain workers' compensation and any other benefits you deserve.
