Social Security Disability
Social security disability (SSDI) was created for people who are under the age of 65 and cannot work due to a physical or mental condition that could last more than 12 months or until death. The benefit amount is based on the injured person’s work history and the amount that they have paid to the social security system through taxes. Supplemental security income (SSI) is paid to people who have possibly not worked in the past, who are at the low-income level, and are either disabled, blind, or 65 years or older. Benefits are based on financial need.
Were you aware that over 65 percent of social security disability benefits’ applications are denied the first time around?

Quick & Efficient Legal Services
You can apply for social security benefits when you missed a minimum of 30 days’ work due to a health condition. If your application for SSI or SSD was rejected, you have just 60 days to gather your information together, compile a stronger appeal application, and submit it. There are many more subtle factors and deadlines that people commonly miss due to inattention to detail. Our lawyers are intimately familiar with this area of law and we can ensure that all the appropriate paperwork is compiled, organized, and submitted on time. We can also proficiently represent you in court and fight for your best interests.
In order to be found disabled under the Social Security Administration guidelines, the following questions must be answered:
- Is there a severe impairment?
- Can claimant perform other work?
- Is the impairment already listed by SSA?
- Can claimant perform their past relevant work?
- Are monthly earnings under the “Substantial Gainful Activity” (SGA) threshold?
