Evaluating Your Eligibility for SSD Benefits
If you are unable to earn a living through work due to a physical or psychological disability, you may be eligible for Social Security disability benefits, also known as Social Security disability insurance (SSDI). These benefits are available to people with disabilities caused by:
- Accident injuries
- Chronic medical conditions
If you have paid into the Social Security system through your payroll taxes, you have paid for the right to receive these benefits. In some cases, your spouse or children may also be eligible.
If you are not eligible for Social Security disability benefits, or if the benefits are not adequate, you may be eligible for Supplemental Security Income (SSI). The criteria for disability are the same, but you must show financial need, and the level of benefits may be different.
Guiding You Through the Social Security Process
Most applications for Social Security disability benefits are initially denied, but a very large number of these denials are reversed on appeal. Our attorneys have represented clients at SSD appeal hearings throughout the country and have had a very high success rate.
We also represent people who are being pursued by the Social Security Administration for alleged overpayment of Social Security disability benefits. If you have any concerns about SSD benefits, don't hesitate to contact us to talk to an experienced attorney.
