Description: Milwaukee, Wisconsin social security disability lawyer represented Plaintiff seeking review of the denial by HHS of his application for Social Security: SSID Tit. XVI benefits.
"The acronym SSID stands for Supplemental Security Income, which is a different program from Title XVI of the Social Security Act.
Title XVI is the part of the Social Security Act that establishes the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program.
SSI is a federal program that provides monthly cash payments to low-income individuals who are blind, disabled, or aged 65 or older.
To be eligible for SSI, you must meet the following requirements:
You must be a U.S. citizen or legal permanent resident.
You must have limited income and resources.
You must be blind, disabled, or aged 65 or older.
The amount of SSI benefits you receive depends on your income and resources. You may also be eligible for Medicaid benefits if you are receiving SSI benefits.
To apply for SSI, you can visit your local Social Security office or apply online. You will need to provide information about your income, resources, and medical condition. The Social Security Administration will review your application and make a decision about whether you are eligible for benefits.
If you are denied benefits, you can appeal the decision. You have 60 days to file an appeal. The Social Security Administration will review your appeal and make a final decision.
If you have any questions about SSI benefits, you should contact your local Social Security office."
Outcome: Judgment in favor of Plaintiff.
