Independent Living Resource Center: Benefits Support
Bay Area Counties Served: San Francisco
The Independent Living Resource Center (ILRC) provides informational Benefits Eligibility Workshops that cover SSI benefits and applications. Given that very few legal providers help with SSI applications (they usually help at the appeal stage), this can be a helpful resource.
ILRC also provides limited legal services for San Franciscans with disabilities, including administrative hearings (SSDI, SSI, CAPI), simple wills, advanced healthcare directives and other planning tools, consumer debt/medical issues, obtaining reasonable accommodations in employment, obtaining reasonable accommodations in housing, and filing ADA access complaints.
