Benefits of SSI/SSDI Enrollment

There are a number of advantages for state and county governments and individual recipients to implementing disability screening and application services for TANF and General Assistance caseloads. Among these:

Benefits of  SSI/SSDI Enrollment of your TANF/GA populations:

  • Provide cost avoidance of future cash aid payments by moving TANF/GR recipients onto federal SSA disability benefits
  •  Increase revenue recovery of cash aid payments through Interim Assistance Reimbursement (IAR) for individuals receiving General Relief payments. 
  • Improve the state’s Work Participation Rate, helping to avoid federal penalties.
  • Boost federal Medicare eligibility for low-income disabled individuals while decreasing state Medicaid expenditures. 
  • Increase Medicaid eligibility for this same population, thereby decreasing uncompensated medical costs.
  • Provide more financial stability to the individual through increased monthly cash aid (SSI/SSDI is generally more per month than TANF and/or GA)

The PCG Human Services Approach:

Founded by a former SSA district manager, PCG’s Claims Processing Center of Excellence unit has an ‘insider’s view’ of the Social Security Disability process. We approach each project as a partner with SSA and the State Disability Determination Services (DDS) rather than an adversary and we develop close and effective working relationships in all of our contracts.


Our comprehensive, hands-on, and full representation package of services takes into consideration the unique needs of the clientele in relation to the needs of the state. Services include:

  • Supplemental Security Income (SSI) initial applications
  • Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) initial applications
    • Dependent applications for children
  • Representation at all levels of administrative appeal including reconsiderations, hearing and appeals council review
  • Training Services

We allow state and county disability claiming programs to achieve the highest rate of success in the shortest time frames. We actively pursue the maximum number of claims available, focusing intensively on the initial level of adjudication. We also provide full-service representation of our clients throughout the process, including actively seeking out the necessary medical, vocational, and functional documentation to build the strongest possible case for allowance of all our claims.
