Social Security Supplemental Income
The SSI program provides monthly payments to adults and children with a disability or blindness and who have income and resources below specified amounts. SSI payments can also be made to people 65 and older without disabilities who meet the financial limits.
Our California attorneys have decades of experience handling SSI cases. The application processes can be confusing, often requiring an attorney, and you can rely on Lerner, Moore, Silva, Cunningham & Rubel to stand by your side.
