Who Qualifies for SSI?

SSI PortlandAre you wondering if you or a family member qualifies for SSI in Portland? Let us provide you with detailed information about the qualifications and application process. Supplemental Security Income is intended to help those who have little or no income and are disabled because they may not be able to support themselves. At Richard Sly, Attorney at Law, we want to help people in need achieve financial assistance, so we listed out the qualifications for SSI benefits.

Disabled- To qualify, you must be disabled. SSI covers a range of disabilities including blindness, musculoskeletal conditions, neurological disorders, immune disorders, and more. If you are unsure if a disability qualifies, you can reach out to us for clarification.

Limited Income- For one individual, their countable assets must be below $2,000 and for a married couple, it must be under $3,000. If you need help calculating the assets for a loved one or yourself, we can help you determine if it meets the maximum amount.

If you or a loved one meets the criteria listed above, you should contact Richard Sly, Attorney at Law to start the application process. Give us a call at (503) 676-6162 to schedule a consultation to discuss the benefits of SSI and how it will affect your current situation.
