We Can Help With Your Supplemental Security Income (SSI) Claim
Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a benefit program for people who are elderly, blind or disabled. SSI benefits provide financial assistance to cover basic needs to those who have little or no income and very few assets.
If you are not eligible for Social Security Disability, you may be eligible for SSI benefits. The lawyers at the Law Offices of Lawrence D. Rohlfing can help you qualify. Based in Santa Fe Springs, California, our law firm helps individuals throughout the Los Angeles and San Diego metro areas who need assistance obtaining disability benefits.

SSI Vs. SSDI
Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Social Security Disability (SSDI) are both administered through the Social Security Administration. They both provide disability benefits to people who cannot work. They both use the same criteria to determine if you have a qualifying physical impairment or mental impairment.
- SSDI provides disability checks to people who have paid into the system through Social Security taxes on their paychecks. The monthly benefits are based on how much the person paid in (up to a maximum).
- SSI is a form of welfare. It pays benefits to people who are aged, disabled or blind and lack basic income and resources to survive. SSI is designed for people who have never worked or who have not paid enough into the system to be eligible for Social Security Disability. The monthly benefit is fixed. To qualify, your income and assets must be below a certain level.
