Supplemental Security Income (SSI)

Many people in southern Indiana suffer from physical and mental disabilities that prevent them from ever working and earning substantial income. If this describes your situation or a family member's, Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits may be available. However, it is critical to understand that most SSI applications are initially denied — and an attorney at our firm in Columbus and Bloomington can help you decide on next steps.

Are You Disabled And Desperate For Income To Meet Basic Life Expenses?

We recognize how incredibly difficult it is for anyone to survive financially without steady income. Social Security Disability lawyers at Arnholt & Staggs Law Office have been helping people in the Columbus and Bloomington areas get the federal government benefits they deserve for more than three decades.

Led by accomplished attorney Tim E. Staggs, our first mission is to provide practical counsel on whether you qualify for SSI. If we believe you can, we will do everything possible to clear hurdles associated with your case and prepare you for your disability hearing before a judge. We will thoroughly assess:

  • Whether your physical or mental impairment meets the requirements of the Social Security Administration (SSA) for a total disability
  • Whether you meet strict SSA requirements that you have extremely limited assets or other means of financial support
  • What is necessary — such as additional diagnostic testing or testimony from a vocational expert — to demonstrate to an administrative law judge that you legitimately need SSI benefits

We work with people across the full economic spectrum of life in Bartholomew and Monroe counties. You can turn to us if you have been prevented from working your entire life or if you became disabled later in life and the work you performed many years ago does not qualify you for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits.

Our lawyer and professional support team are here to help you. For a free initial consultation focused on your rights to disability benefits and any other options you have for obtaining the medical treatment and financial support you desperately need, call us at 812-373-6539 or send an email now. You do not have to worry about upfront costs because we charge attorney fees only if we take your case and help you obtain benefits. Expenses associated with your case will be due regardless of the outcome, but you will not have to pay these expenses until you receive a decision on your case.
