Supplemental Security Income (SSI)

Helping Individuals Throughout Florida Pursue SSI Benefits

Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is similar to Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) in that it provides money and benefits to those who are no longer able to work because of their physical disabilities or mental conditions. However, unlike SSDI, you can qualify for SSI benefits without ever having had FICA taxes taken out of your paychecks. This is a significant asset for those who have not worked long enough or consistently enough to be eligible for SSDI.


At Florida Disability Advocates, we are here to guide you throughout the SSI application process in a way that minimizes your stress and maximizes your chances of a favorable decision. We are also available to assist with all aspects of Social Security benefits for children.

Even if you have already applied for benefits and were denied, do not give up hope. With 25 years of legal experience, attorney Chad Lawrence has helped many individuals appeal denied SSI claims. We will devote our full resources and knowledge to seeking the best outcome possible for you.

How To Qualify For SSI Benefits

The Social Security Administration determines a person’s eligibility for SSI by weighing a number of different factors, including your age, assets and income level. Those whose household income is above a certain level will not qualify for SSI.

If your household income does meet the restrictions, the Administration will then require proof that you have a disabling condition that makes it impossible for you to work. Examples of such disabilities may include orthopedic injuries, arthritis, mental disorders, cancer, chronic pain, fibromyalgia and more. Our law firm can help you understand exactly what the Administration is looking for in an SSI application and how to answer every question effectively.
