SSI for Those Under 18.

Most of the time when we think of SSI (Supplemental Security Income) we think of people who have been in the workforce and are now in need of financial assistance.  SSI is financed by general funds of the US Treasury and not based on your prior work history like we have come to know Social Security.

SSI beneficiaries are also eligible for medical assistance known as Medicaid (Not Medicare).  This pays for a myriad of health issues such as hospital stays, prescription drugs, visits to the doctor, and other various health-related expenses.  To begin, you should secure The Child Disability Starter Kit.  Read this first.

The next step is to contact the right attorney to guide you in this process.  Why?  Because the legal issues surrounding a child’s disability claims may become quite complex.  The right choice is Seattle area SSI attorney Lyle Clark.  For decades, he has helped families navigate through the legal system.  Call for a consultation at his Bellevue, WA office at (425) 452-3092.

The Million Man Waiting List.

You may have heard of the Million Man March.  And recently, millions gathered in Washington, DC to protest the inauguration of the new president.  You may not have been a part of any of that, but you may now be effected by this new euphemism: the Million Man Waiting List.  It is something of which you may need to be aware.

For some, it may be the stuff of nightmares.  You or a loved one may have been permanently injured in an auto accident or have a serious medical condition or mental illness.  You can no longer work for a living and your only recourse is to apply for disability insurance benefits or SSI.  Then you go to the Social Security office and find out that the average wait time is more than a year and a half if your initial application is turned down and you need to appeal!

You must take action, or struggle without any visible means of support.  That is when you decide to call Seattle area disability attorney Lyle M. Clark, Jr.  Attorney Clark has spent the last four decades fighting for the “little guy” who needs to receive his or her rightful benefits to survive.  Arrange an appointment at his Bellevue, WA office by calling (425) 452-3092.
