Are you disabled and unable to work? Is your condition expected to last for at least 12 months? If so, you may qualify for federal disability benefits. The Social Security Administration 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 disability.
Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is the disability 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.
A Social Security Disability Attorney can evaluate your claim, help with your initial application and help you with your appeal. If your case goes to a judicial hearing, your Social Security Disability Attorney will ensure that you are well represented in court and will give you the best chance possible of obtaining a favorable outcome.
Social Security Disability Lawyers have knowledge of the rules that regulate Social Security Disability and SSI. Many valid claims are denied because the evidence is presented in an unorganized manner without consideration to the methodology that Social Security uses to understand and approve claims.
