Supplemental Security Income Carry
What is the difference between SSI and SSD?
Supplemental security income is for individuals who meet the following
- Limited income
- No income
- Disabled or blind
- Age 65 or older
- Blind or disabled children
On the other hand,
Social Security disability benefits are designed for individuals who meet
strict criteria. They may, however, be eligible to receive Supplemental Security Income
(SSI), which pays monthly benefits. Supplemental Security Income might
also be offered together with
Social Security disability benefits. The difference is that SSI does not require any previous hours spent
working for an employer covered by Social Security Disability Insurance.
How to Apply for SSI
For the state of Nevada, the Social Security Administration (SSA) administers
Supplemental Security Income. You must make an appointment with your local
Social Security office in order to have a representative assist you in
your application. You will need to complete and submit certain documentation
and speak with a Social Security claims representative in person or over
the phone in order for your application to be processed and your claim
accepted. You are also allowed to have someone help you with your SSI
application, which is why it is extremely beneficial to hire a Las Vegas
Social Security disability attorney for counsel and assistance.
