Apply For Social Security Benefits
Applying for Social Security Disability benefits can be a lengthy and complicated process. The Social Security (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) disability programs provide assistance to people with disabilities. While these two programs are different in many ways, both are administered by the Social Security Administration and only individuals who have a disability and meet medical criteria may qualify for benefits under either program.
- Social Security Disability Insurance pays benefits to you and certain members of your family if you are “insured,” meaning that you worked long enough and paid Social Security taxes.
- Supplemental Security Income (SSI) pays benefits based on financial need.
Your Application for Disability is Approved or Denied
Your application can be denied for either:
- Medical reasons.
- Non-medical reasons.
The firm will pursue rightful compensation from the Social Security Administration for your disability benefits during and throughout the appeal’s process. In general, the Social Security Administration will pay cash benefits to those who are unable to work for a year or more because of a physical or mental disability. In order to receive these benefits, one must prove that she or he is in fact disabled or suffering from a disability. Although it is unnecessary to find a lawyer when you first apply for disability benefits at any Social Security office, we recommed that you contact a disability attorney as soon as you receive any denial of benefits notice from the Social Security Administration. Let us help you obtain your disability benefits.
