Plaintiff's Attorney: Art Anderson
Defendant's Attorney: Geoffrey M. Peters
Description: Albany, New York social security disability lawyer represented Plaintiff seeking review of the denial of his application for Social Security: SSID Tit. XVI benefits by HHS.
"SSID stands for Supplemental Security Income. It is a federal program that provides monthly cash benefits to low-income adults and children with disabilities. To be eligible for SSID benefits, you must meet the following criteria:
You must be a U.S. citizen or legal resident.
You must have a disability that prevents you from working.
Your income and resources must be below certain limits.
The amount of SSID benefits you receive depends on your income and resources. In 2023, the maximum monthly benefit for an individual is $794 and the maximum monthly benefit for a couple is $1,191.
SSID benefits are not taxed and they can be used to pay for food, housing, clothing, transportation, and other basic necessities. SSID benefits can also be used to pay for Medicare premiums and other medical expenses.
If you think you may be eligible for SSID benefits, you can apply online at www.ssa.gov/applyonline or by calling 1-800-772-1213.
Here are some additional things to know about SSID benefits:
SSI benefits are not permanent. You must continue to meet the eligibility criteria in order to receive benefits.
If your income or resources increase above the limits, your benefits may be reduced or terminated.
You can appeal if your application for SSID benefits is denied.
SSI benefits are not the only source of financial assistance available to people with disabilities. There are many other programs that can help, such as Medicaid, food stamps, and housing assistance."
