Receive SSI and Social Security Benefits

You may be able to receive both Supplemental Security Income and Social Security benefits, if your monthly Social Security payment is low enough. In determining if you are eligible for SSI, your monthly income will be taken into consideration. If you receive Social Security benefits and you are applying for SSI, part of your monthly Social Security income will not count in determining if you are eligible for SSI. Feel free to contact a Social Security disability lawyer who specializes in social security law for more information about Supplemental Security Income and Social Security benefits.

Example:
Joe currently receives some Social Security benefits. He has very little income and assets. Joe has a disability and wants to file for Supplemental Security Income to help him get by due to his inability to work. Joe may be eligible for Supplemental Security Income because he does not receive very much in Social Security benefits. Joe may be able to get both Supplemental Security Income and Social Security benefits. If Joe receives a substantial amount each month in Social Security benefits, he would not be a candidate for SSI as well. To find out if Joe could qualify for Supplemental Security Income in addition to Social Security benefits, Joe can contact a Social Security disability lawyer who specializes in Social Security law.
