Eligibility for other programs as a disability benefit recipient

If you are someone that qualifies for Social Security Disability (SSI) benefits, it means that you are a disabled person that is unable to earn a meaningful income because of your condition and the associated challenges. Many recipients of SSI do not realize that they may be in fact eligible for many other state programs.

Dealing with a denied disability claim

In you are a person that has become recently ill or disabled, it likely means that you have spent some part of your life working and paying taxes. When you pay your taxes, some of these funds go towards the Social Security Administration (SSA), and the SSA in turn provides disability benefits to eligible tax payers.

Qualifying for supplemental security income in Kentucky?

Supplemental security income is a nationwide program, and it allows people who have a limited income to be able to seek financial benefits from the government. Many people are often left confused about who is eligible for these types of benefits and who is not.

Applying for Social Security due to blindness

If you can be classified as legally blind, then you will be qualified for disability benefits. However, if you are trying to pursue benefits under the Social Security Administration (SSA), you may have to provide other information in order to be eligible.

Work incentives and Supplemental Security Income

Having a disability or a long-term illness can severely affect your independence and your quality of life. Having an independent life is something that the government wants to help all citizens work towards, if it is possible in their futures. However, those who are receiving Supplemental Security Income (SSI) may fear that getting a part-time job will put their SSI benefits in jeopardy. This is why SSI has introduced work incentives in order to minimize a job seeker's risk of losing his or her benefits if he or she does attain part-time work.

Will my Social Security benefits change when I turn 65?

The Social Security Administration (SSA) determines what can be deemed as the retirement age for different people. The retirement age that is assigned to you depends on the year that you were born: people who are born in 1937 or earlier are considered of a retirement age once they turn 65. However, for those born in 1938 or later, things get a little more complicated. There is a staggered definition of retirement age: being born in 1938 is 65 and 2 months, 1939 is 65 and 4 months, and so on. Therefore, you should be aware of when you will become of retirement age.
