SOCIAL SECURITY DISABILITY

Are you disabled and unable to work? If so, you may qualify for federal disability benefits.

We'd love to talk with you about your individual circumstances and discuss what is the best way to help you obtain the benefits you deserve.  Our consultations are always free!

What is Social Security Disability?

The Social Security Administration (SSA) administers two federal disability programs: Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), and Supplemental Security Income (SSI).

Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) provides monthly cash disability payments to those who qualify. Almost everyone that works pays FICA taxes, and if you have paid enough FICA taxes in your past jobs, then you are considered “insured” and may be eligible for SSDI if you have a qualifying claim.

Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a program that is designed to provide monthly cash disability payments to those that do not qualify for SSDI but are still disabled and unable to work.

How Hard is it to obtain benefits?

It can be very hard.  Nationally, two-thirds of those who apply are denied Social Security disability benefits. 

 

However, over half of Social Security claimants who appeal their denials will ultimately be awarded disability benefits.

The appeals process can be a very lengthy process, but with an experienced attorney guiding you through each step, you do have a good chance at obtaining your benefits.

Do I Qualify?

Possibly.  The Social Security Administration’s evaluation process is complex but ability to work, age, education, and recent jobs are the key factors affecting disability determination. 

In order to qualify for benefits, an individual must complete the lengthy and often complicated application, hearing and appeals process.
