Supplemental Security Income (SSI) Attorney Services
Do you need an SSI lawyer?
Prasad Law Offices recognizes that qualifying for Supplemental Security Income benefits can have a life-changing effect on an individual or a family.
Unlike Social Security Disability Income (SSDI), SSI is a needs-based benefit program for the aged (65+) and the disabled of any age. While you do not need to have paid into the Social Security system to qualify for SSI, you must fall below Social Security’s thresholds for family income and resources. These thresholds are very low, and the rules for meeting SSI qualifications can be complicated.
Prasad Law Offices attorneys know the rules for resource and income qualifications. We know the best ways to deal with current incomes and assets — as well as with any awards, settlements, inheritances, and financial windfalls — so that you can both earn and preserve your entitlements to SSI and Medicaid

Low-income families need high-quality lawyers
Lawyer jokes aside, there are many thousands of empathetic attorneys out there who are relentless in their pursuit of their clients’ rights to SSI benefits. And Prasad Law Offices is one such law firm. We are very caring, highly attentive, and believe that the scales of justice should not be weighted down on either side by currency.
For a detailed listing of the types of conditions that qualify for SSI benefits, please see our SSDI page. If any of these conditions describe you, and you are 65-years-old or older, or if you have a child who has any combination of these conditions, you might qualify for SSI benefits if you qualify as a low-income income household.
In fact, you or your child might also qualify if you designated as a “qualified alien” as described by the Department of Homeland Security. Please feel free to contact us if you have questions about your legal status as it applies to SSI.
