Impairment-Related Work Expenses

Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is an important source of income for many Americans whose ability to work is adversely affected by a disability. Whether individuals suffer from blindness or another limiting disability, it is important that they receive all of the financial support they deserve. Filing for deductions based on impairment-related work expenses is an important step in receiving all the income you need.

If you feel that you are not receiving all the supplemental income that you deserve, it is important to seek the help of a legal professional. Please contact the Indianapolis Supplemental Security Income lawyers of the Hankey Law Office, by calling (800) 520-3633 for more information.

Deductions from Countable Earnings

The income that you are eligible to receive through the SSI program is dependent in part on the countable earnings you make each month. There are some deductions that everyone who is eligible for SSI can claim, but there are also additional deductions that can be applied if you use part of your income to pay for impairment-related work expenses.

The following expenses may be examples of impairment-related work expenses (IRWE):

  • Medicines
  • Medical devices
  • Service animals
  • Impairment-related transportation
  • Home modifications

The experience and insight of a qualified SSI attorney can help you receive all of the income that you deserve.
