Ocala SSI Disability: Do You Qualify?

Ocala SSI Disability

There are a few checkboxes that the Social Security Administration requires that you meet to qualify for Ocala SSI Disability. Keep reading to find out if you qualify. 

Navigating the Social Security Administration is often complex and filled with technical jargon. This alone makes it difficult to determine whether you qualify for Ocala SSI Disability benefits or not. 

Of the many services provided by the Social Security Administration, Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a program that pays benefits to those who have limited income and resources. 

Determining whether you qualify for SSI can be tricky as you can be a child or an adult, with or without a disability to receive these benefits, which are then muddled by your age, disability and income requirements.

For example, if you’re 65 and older and don’t have a qualifying disability, but meet the financial limit, you may be eligible for SSI. Or, depending on your work history, you could be eligible to receive Supplemental Security Disability Income (SSDI) or retirement benefits in addition to SSI benefits.
