Do You Work With People who need help applying for SSI DISABILITY? Community Legal Services (CLS), Philadelphia Legal Assistance (PLA) & the law firm of Pepper Hamilton, LLP are launching an SSI Application Project to help people apply for SSI. Clinics will be held monthly.
In PA, just 1 in 3 initial SSI applications are approved. Any help to ensure an application is as complete and accurate as possible can improve a personís chances of quick approval, without the lengthy wait for an appeal hearing.
We are seeking community partners that work with people with disabilities, to connect people needing to apply for SSI with the Project. We will be providing free legal assistance in filing SSI applications.
For more information, or to reserve space for a client at one of the upcoming clinics, email applyforSSI@clsphila.org or call 215-981-3726
