Two Different Social Security Disability Programs

Social Security Disability (SSD) consists of two separate programs that help those who are no longer able to work with monthly benefits. These two programs are social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI). Both programs require an extensive and detailed application process. A skilled attorney can make this process easier and offer guidance that can expedite the process.

Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI)

SSDI is a benefit designed to help those who are no longer able to work, and who have a work history that includes sufficient contributions into the Social Security system.

Supplemental Security Income (SSI)

Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is designed to help those who can no longer work due to disability, but who may not have made sufficient contributions into the Social Security system. SSI often helps young people who are unable to work, but the program is also open to older people as well.

Help At All Stages Of The Process — From Application To Appeal

We are here to help you with your application for SSD benefits no matter what stage in the process you are at. As experienced attorneys who have handled hundreds of applications, we understand the medical evidence that the Social Security Administration (SSA) wants to see to support claims, and we understand how they want that information presented.

Decades Of Social Security Disability Experience

Our legal team is here to make the process of applying for SSD benefits as easy as possible. We recommend that people come in and work with our skilled attorneys on their initial applications. But, even if you have already applied and were denied, we can help you. Many people do not get accepted and must appeal the process. A skilled lawyer can assess your application and discern why the application was denied and what needs to be done on the appeal. We bring a wealth of experience in helping people obtain the benefits they need.
