Social Security Disability
When dealing with serious personal injuries, work injuries, or illnesses, it is important to consider whether you are eligible for Social Security Disability Benefits (SSD) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI). According to its regulations, Social Security finds that a person is disabled if he/she is unable to perform substantial gainful activity because of a proven medical impairment which has lasted at least 12 consecutive months. SSI is a type of federal supplement program intended for individuals who do not qualify for SSD benefits, but meet certain disability and financial criteria.
The process for obtaining these benefits is complex, and handling an appeal without experienced counsel can jeopardize your claim. Our attorneys can offer the assistance you need to navigate through the application and hearing process and help you obtain the benefits you deserve.
