Low birth weight and failure to thrive as qualifiers for SSI

Supplemental Security Income (SSI) has a designation for newborns who have low birth weight and another one for children who are failing to thrive. Parents who are fighting for these benefits might be confronted with a host of information that is very confusing. Oftentimes, this information comes when the parent is still coping with a premature birth and other medical conditions for their child.

Don't fall for scam Social Security phone calls

People who are receiving Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and those who are applying for it want to do what they can to get their case decided. Unfortunately, scammers are preying on that desire by using it to get information out of innocent people. One scam that is going around involves people receiving phone calls that appear to be from the Social Security Administration (SSA).

Appealing a Supplemental Security Income claim that was denied

Applying for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) from the Social Security Administration (SSA) is an important task millions of people will complete during their lifetime. There is the possibility that your application for SSI could be denied for a variety of reasons. If your SSI claim is denied, you need to know how to appeal the denial, so you can acquire benefits.

Documents needed to file for disability benefits

California residents seeking disability benefits typically find the application and approval process frustrating and stressful. The Social Security Administration (SSA) puts a great amount of effort into making sure that applicants do not attempt to defraud the disability program. As such, many people who deserve these benefits, including Supplemental Security Income, receive a notice of denial instead of the approval they need.

Is Supplemental Security Income the same as disability?

When two different terms sound somewhat alike, it may be difficult to keep the two terms separate in your mind. If a time ever comes when you must apply for disability benefits, you may encounter many terms that sound similar to one another. Two of these terms include Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). Although they may sound and look alike to a degree, these are two totally separate terms representing different government programs.
