Applying for SSI With a Mental Health Disability: 5 Things to Know

Saturday, October 26, 2019:  1:15 p.m. - 2:15 p.m.

When an individual with a mental health disability is trying to decide whether to apply for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or Social Security Disability Income (SSDI) benefits, there are many questions to be considered. How will I prove to the Social Security Administration that I am disabled? What kind of treatment history do I need? What benefits do I qualify for?

This training will cover the SSI/SSDI application process, the steps to take before applying, the kinds of information to gather, and the resources available in Los Angeles County to help you submit a successful application.
