Helping People in California and Oregon Get Supplemental Security Income Benefits
Some people who are disabled and unable to work do not qualify for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits due to an insufficient work history.
If you cannot support yourself financially but are concerned about your lack of work history, you may still be eligible for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits. The SSI program was established to provide for people who are disabled, blind or 65 or older who do not qualify for SSD benefits.
In addition, a person receiving SSI benefits has limits on the amount of income or assets he or she can own. In order to receive SSI benefits, the Social Security Administration (SSA) must approve your claim. A lawyer can be very helpful in helping you present the best possible case.
The Law Office of Barbara M. Jacobson is based in Sacramento and represents people in California and Oregon in disability claims, including SSI claims. With more than 20 years of experience representing clients in this field, attorney Jacobson fully understands the legal, medical and procedural issues that are involved in these types of claims.
