Social Security Disability

Are you unable to work because of a mental or physical condition? Do you need help applying for disability? Have you been denied disability benefits in the past?  We can help.

If you have a mental or physical condition that prevents you from being able to work, you may qualify for compensation from Social Security.  Social Security disability is a program that pays disability benefits in two ways:

People often ask what the difference is between SSDI and SSI.  The main difference between Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is the fact that SSDI is available to workers who have accumulated a sufficient number of work credits, while SSI disability benefits are available to low-income individuals who have either never worked or who haven’t earned enough work credits to qualify for SSDI.  For most people, the medical requirements for disability payments are the same under both programs and disability is determined by the same process.

While many people don’t distinguish between SSI (Supplemental Security Income) and SSDI (Social Security Disability Insurance), they are two completely different governmental programs. While both programs are overseen and managed by the Social Security Administration, and medical eligibility  for disability is determined in the same manner for both programs, there are distinct differences between the two.

Whether you apply for SSDI or SSI, you will need to provide information about your medical condition, work and education history to help Social Security decide if you are disabled under their rules.

If you have applied for disability benefits and have been subsequently denied, we can help, and we will fight to get you the assistance you deserve.
