Social Security Disability Insurance

If you are a disabled individual who has worked and paid Social Security taxes for an extended period of time (generally, for 10 years total for persons age 31 years and over), you may be eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits. Whether you are initially applying for disability benefits or appealing after your claim has been denied, a knowledgeable Social Security Disability lawyer can help obtain the benefits to which you are entitled, given the nature and severity of your injury or illness.

The standard factors that establish disability in both Social Security Disability (SSDI) and SSI cases include the individual's age, education, work experience, and ability to communicate, read and write in English. These factors, coupled with the individual's physical and/or emotional health problems, determine whether an individual may have a winnable claim.

What My Firm Does For Claimants

I have over 25 years of experience representing claimants for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits at the administrative levels and in the federal courts. I practice SSDI and SSI law exclusively and am dedicated to guiding your case successfully through the system.

My firm represents disabled individuals rendered unable to work due to physical or mental impairments. I also represent disabled individuals who are already receiving Workers' Compensation benefits as a result of a work-related illness or injury, but who may still be entitled to additional benefits through Social Security. Persons receiving Veterans or Long-Term Disability Insurance benefits are also often good candidates for SSDI benefits.

People may not be aware that minor children may be eligible to receive a Social Security Disability benefit of up to nearly 50 percent of the qualifying parent's benefit. Also, disabled persons who are entitled to SSDI are entitled to Medicare health insurance, typically in their 25th month of entitlement to cash benefits.

While no rule requires an individual to hire an attorney to assist in the pursuit of SSDI and/or SSI benefits, doing so does greatly improves a claimant's chances of winning a disability claim. Having an experienced disability lawyer on your side ensures that all physical and mental health impairments are considered and evaluated. Medical tests also can be recommended that could lead to findings that support the disability claim.
