A) SSI applicants who are experiencing extreme hardship qualify for emergency payments. If you qualify only for Social Security disability insurance (SSDI) benefits, you can’t receive emergency payments. According to Social Security Administration –


  • We can start payments more quickly than usual in four different types of situations:
  • presumptive disability (PD) or presumptive blindness (PB) payment;
  • emergency advance payment;
  • immediate payment; and
  • expedited reinstatement cases.

If your claim is for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits for disability or blindness, we may make presumptive disability (PD) or presumptive blindness (PB) payments for up to 6 months while you are waiting for the Disability Determination Services (DDS) to make a final decision. Our decision to grant PD or PB payments is based on the severity of your condition and the likelihood that your claim will be ultimately approved, and is not based on your financial need.

Please contact your local Social Security Office and apply for emergency assistance.

  1. I mailed in my every 4 months renewal application not once but twice to Jonesboro ar Department of Health. The end of last year and when they mail you a renewal application a person fills it out, then mails it back to them, and then a Department of Health worker will mail you a phone interview date so they can call you and interview you to continue furthering your ebt elibilty. So when I didn’t receive another letter stating the Date and Time of my interview on the phone from them after a week, I called the Jonesboro office and asked if they received my application, the lady said No but due to Thanksgiving being a holiday I would give it a few days I mailed it a week before Thanksgiving, anyways a week later I still have not received nothing so again I called up there and asked them if they received my application yet. Told them I had called before asking the same ? And what the worker had said, the lady go No we haven’t gotten it, and she said I had til the 15th of December to have it turned it that she couldn’t control the mail, okay I know that. I asked for her to please mail me another renewal form and I didn’t get one still, it should take 2 days at most to get the mail from Jonesboro to where I live. So I call again and tell the lady this whole story and asked to please mail me a renewal letter that I didn’t want to not get my benefits due to them not receiving my renewal form if benifits she said that I will be fine she would take note I have been calling the office keeping in touch with them about my renewal letter. Well today I call after mailing my renewal again the lady said my case has been closed and I would have to reapply. That I didn’t sign my application. WHAT. I MEAN I AM BEYOND ANNOYED WITH JONESBORO DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH WORKERS YOU PEOPLE ARE BIT THERE JUST TO GET A PAYCHECK. IT SEEMS TO ME, BC OF HOW YOU ACT ON THE PHONE AND IN PERSON WITH PEOPLE. UNPROFESSIONAL AND UNCARING PEOPLE.NOT ALL OF THEM BUT HERE LATELY YES AND MY FRIEND WRNT THROUGH THE SAME THING WITH THEM 6 MONTHS AGO.
