Do you suffer from a Medical Condition or Disease Process that Prevents You from Being Able to Work?

The Process Can be Overwhelming

papersApplying for Social Security Disability Insurance Benefits and Supplemental Security Income Benefits can be an intimidating process, and the paperwork required is often overwhelming. In fact, incorrect or incomplete answers may cause denial or delay of your claim.

An experienced representative can make the difference in the outcome of your case. There is no charge to review your claim, and we may be able to help you even if you have been denied for a claim in the past.

The Social Security Administration pays monthly benefits to individuals who are disabled. We have experience helping applicants qualify for these programs.

There are Several Types of Benefits Available to Disabled Individuals

Disability Insurance Benefits

Eligibility for Social Security disability is based on prior work under Social Security. This program pays monthly benefits to people with disabilities that meet certain criteria of the Social Security Administration. Even if a medical condition does not equal or meet the Listing of Impairment considered by the Social Security Administration in rendering a decision regarding disability, we may be able to obtain a favorable outcome based on other factors.

Supplemental Security Income

Supplemental Security Income is a program that pays benefits to the blind and disabled who do not own much property or who do not have very much income coming into their household. Once the medical criteria are met, payments under this program are made on the basis of financial need.

Disabled Widow/Widower Benefits

A widow/widower who is age 50 or older and who is disabled may qualify for benefits on a spouse’s account.

Childhood Disability

There is a program for children (under age of 18) who suffer disabilities. If your child has a medically determinable impairment or combination of impairments that are severe, he or she may qualify for benefits, although other criteria must be met as well in order to receive benefits.
