Applying for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) in Halifax is simple if you qualify physically and financially. SSI is for people whose health problems prevent them from working. Some frequent questions we receive are the following:

  1. What Is SSI?

    Supplemental Security Income is a federal benefit program that is administered by the Social Security Administration. SSI provides safety-net financial support for people in need and you can qualify if you are 60 or older; blind or disabled; a U.S. citizen; and have a very limited income as well as financial resources. Apply for SSI in Halifax with us to make sure you are getting the best possible outcome from the process.

We can help make the process more comfortable for you. If you have received a denial, we also help you with appeals every step of the way.

  3. Is There A Difference Between Social Security Disability And SSI?

    Yes. SSI is financed through general tax revenues, not through a Supplemental Security trust fund. SSI benefits are paid to those with little income and not a lot of valuables.  Social Security Disability Benefits is a program for workers, employers, and self-employed people.

  4. What Kind Of Disability Benefits Does Social Security Pay?

    SSI provides a monthly payment of around $545 for an individual and $817 for an eligible couple. If you are married with only one eligible person, a portion of your spouse’s income could be counted. In addition to your low income, your financial resources cannot exceed $2,000 and your SSI is paid to you, not to any of your family members.
