Are You Struggling With Your Social Security Disability Claim?
Social Security Disability Insurance or SSDI is a federal benefit available for those eligible who have severe medical conditions that render them unable to perform the duties of any past job or any other type of regular employment. To qualify for SSDI, individuals must meet a strict definition of disability. The disabling condition must be one that is severe and expected to last for at least one year, or to result in death. Documented medical treatment is critical in proving the extent of disability needed to qualify for social security benefits.
Supplemental Security Income is for people who are either disabled, blind, or over 65. Additionally, in order to qualify for SSI, it must be shown that you have very limited income or resources. Applying for SSDI or SSI can be a very long and difficult process.
Typically, a disabled person will complete an application at the local Social Security Administration office or through the website, www.socialsecurity.gov. It is not uncommon to be denied after the initial application. This is especially true for individuals who are under the age of 55. However, it is very important to continue with the reconsideration and appeal process. The appeal process is often long, with strict deadlines. However, many applicants are ultimately successful at the appeal stage after initial denials. Many Social Security Disability claims are not approved, either because the application is missing vital information, or because medical records are incomplete. Our lawyers have substantial experience preparing SSDI and SSI claims and appeals. We can identify problems with your claim and greatly increase your chances of getting benefits. There is no cost to you unless we are successful at obtaining benefits for you.
