We Will Fight for the Benefits You Deserve
Nearly everyone pays into Social Security, but very few people know what their legal entitlements are under the system. Most people think that Social Security is only something that is paid to you when you retire. Although it is true that this is indeed one of the benefits, there are several others that are offered under the Social Security system.
Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI)
Under this program, the federal government, through the Social Security Administration, pays money to people who are unable to work due to a medical condition that lasts for at least 1 year or will result in death. To be eligible to receive these benefits, you must be found to be totally disabled under the Social Security Administration's strict and narrow definition of that term. You must also have paid into the Social Security system for a sufficiently long enough period of time in order to receive these benefits.
Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
The Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program provides for the basic needs of blind, aged, and disabled people who have either very little or no income. Eligible children and adults are given money for such things as food, clothing, and shelter.
Why Do I Need an Attorney to Apply for Social Security Benefits?
It can be a daunting task for a non-attorney to apply for Social Security Disability Insurance or Supplemental Security Income benefits. The Social Security Administration requires you to complete multiple forms which require you to provide them with a tremendous amount of extremely detailed information such as your medical treatment, medications, laboratory results, past employment, daily activities, and the like. All of this documentation is put into the record and is used to determine your legality. As such, it is critical to hire an attorney who can help you with all of this paperwork and ensure that it you complete it accurately in order to increase your chances of being approved.
