Qualifying for SSI Benefits
SSI benefits are for people who are disabled, blind, or at least 65 years old. To qualify, a person must have limited income and financial resources.
However, it’s not always easy to know who qualifies. There are a lot of things that are not counted towards the resources limit. Things like your home, a personal vehicle, a burial plot and life insurance policies don’t count as part of your assets. Even certain savings accounts for someone with a disability are excluded.
Meeting with our team, we’ll review your personal situation. It’s our goal to identify all the benefits you are eligible for. Then, when we represent you, we’ll pursue your benefits, gathering and presenting your case with a team of lawyers on your side.

Supplemental Security Income (SSI) FAQs
What is the income limit for SSI?
As you earn income, your SSI benefits are reduced. However, some types of income don’t count like minimum earnings in a month, food assistance benefits, home energy assistance, food or shelter provided by nonprofit organizations, and certain expenses to help a disabled person work. Our lawyers can evaluate your individual situation to determine the income limit that applies.
What resources can you have and still qualify for SSI?
You may have up to $2,000 in assets and still qualify for SSI. The resources limit is $3,000 for a couple. However, many assets don’t count, like your primary residence, household goods and one motor vehicle. In addition, there is an exception for those participating in the ABLE program.

Supplemental Security Income payments in Arizona vary, but they can be up to $914 per month. In addition, a person receiving SSI can receive Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS) insurance.
