Qualifying for Benefits

Our attorneys provide skilled legal representation throughout the application process. We will help with the preparation of the initial application and help you overcome any obstacles along the way. There are two main types of benefits that you may qualify for:

Social Security Disability Insurance ( SSDI): These benefits are available for disabled individuals and their dependents who have paid sufficient Social Security wage taxes and have acquired Social Security insured status.

Supplemental Security Income ( SSI): These benefits differ from SSDI. They are available for disabled individuals that have never worked or have not paid sufficient Social Security taxes to qualify for SSDI benefits. To qualify for SSI, an individual must also have a low income and low assets.

In some cases, an individual may apply for and qualify for both types of disability benefits. If your application is denied, we can represent you through all stages of the Social Security appeals process.

Work With an Experienced Disability Benefits Lawyer

When you come to the Disability Benefits Law Center, P.C., you will work with attorneys who know exactly what documentation will be necessary. We will help you file your application correctly so you do not have to wait longer than necessary to collect the benefits you are entitled to. We have the resources and the experience to help applicants avoid mistakes that may undermine their application.

Seek Medical Advice as Soon as Possible and Follow Through With Treatment

If you are considering applying for disability benefits, or even if you have already submitted an application, it is critical to get the medical treatment you need. If you do not tell your doctor about a health concern, your chances of getting better and qualifying for benefits are very slim. The Social Security Administration is unlikely to approve an application without the appropriate medical documentation.
