MULTIPLE SOCIAL SECURITY BENEFICIARIESWritten by Blur Lorena
Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a federal program run by Social Security Administration that gives a monthly income to people with disabilities, blind, or who are 65 or older with limited income and property. Recipients must be a U.S. citizen or a national with countable income below federal benefit rate or FBR.
Recipients are grouped into children (age 17 and younger), working age (ages 18 to 64), and elderly (age 65 and older). Different policy issues and rules apply to various age groups. There are disability screens for children and working-age applicants while elderly must pass income and asset screens to qualify regardless of whether they are disabled.
This program does not limit number of recipients living in same house. There are three types of households: one-recipient households, households with two married SSI recipients and no other recipients, and households with multiple recipients other than married couple recipients, also known as noncouple multirecipient (NCM) households. Different economies of scale arise from these categories.
Two different surveys about SSI recipients were conducted by SIPP or Survey of Income and Program Participation and Social Security Administration. Both have same analysis and records indicating that one out of five SSI recipients live with one, or more, SSI recipient who is not a spouse. Nonmarried-couple recipients living in same household is guaranteed full individual federal benefit rate while married couple recipients are guaranteed with 150 percent of FBR for individuals. This means that relationships between SSI members and other members of household do not affect benefit payments unless they are married couples living in same household. Children are most likely to live in an NMC household.
Getting a Social Security Disability LawyerWritten by Nashville
To be able to win a social security disability case can only be obtained through assistance of a competent social security disability lawyer. Getting one is such a no small matter. What must we really consider when choosing right representative to handle our disability cases? Well, to help you in this process, I created this article hoping that it can help you in any ways regarding selection of your attorney.
Basically, your lawyer evaluates and formulates a winning strategy for your case. After handling various cases, most attorneys already have an excellent perspective whether a case is winnable or not. They analyze carefully what it takes to win a certain case. More importantly, if you decide to hire an attorney, he will make sure that your case file is up-to-date with all medical records. In addition, he will work with your doctors to "translate" your medical problems into work limitations so that social security can evaluate your claim properly.
A company must have a good image so that their clients will not feel awkward in asking for help from their lawyers. One more thing – lawyers must be competent and knowledgeable enough in their chosen field for them to gain trust of their clients that they’ll win their claims. After all, clients are always on look for dedicated and exceptional attorneys when dealing with their social security disability cases.
