Social Security Disability

print

Social Security Disability is designed to help individuals during a time of need. However, the claim application and appeals process is designed in a manner that can become frustrating and lengthy, causing many people to surrender before benefits are ever approved.

Social Security Disability (SSD): Social Security Disability provides monthly income benefits to eligible individuals who have worked for a sufficient amount of years. The monthly disability benefits are based on your previous work history and income. SSD benefits are available for elderly and disabled individuals who are incapable of working.

Supplemental Security Income (SSI): Many individuals who become disabled have not worked and thus have not contributed to the Social Security system. Although income benefits may be a necessity, lack of work history makes these individuals ineligible for Social Security Disability benefits. Supplemental Security Income is a needs-based program which provides monthly SSI benefits to individuals who prove eligibility.

Moving Past a Denied Claim for SSD/SSI Benefits

The majority of initial Social Security benefit claims are denied the first time. If your claim has been denied, it does not mean that your claim is not legitimate, nor does it mean that benefits will continue to be denied upon appeal. We have the experience and persistence to help you successfully obtain rightful benefits.

We are able to evaluate the Social Security Administration’s (SSA) reasoning for denying your claim and provide advice on how to improve your chances for success upon appeal. We ensure your medical history is documented properly, and we can design an appeal that specifically details your condition and need for benefits. We advocate for your rights and help you pursue a successful appeal.
