    Nationwide Social Security Disability Lawyers

    Social Security disability benefits are paid by the government to qualifying individuals. The Social Security Administration (SSA) oversees two important programs: Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). A seasoned expert could help you pursue either type of benefit. 

    If you believe you are entitled to benefits through the SSA, you don’t have to go through the process alone. It is unfortunately common for minor mistakes to lead to a denial, even when you otherwise meet the SSA’s qualifying criteria. A Social Security expert could help you pursue disability benefits and overcome legal challenges.

    Overview Of Social Security Disability Insurance

    Similar to SSI, SSDI is a form of direct payment to individuals from the federal government. Unlike SSI, these benefits are funded through payroll taxes, meaning workers contribute to the SSDI system for their entire working lives.

    For that reason, the SSA imposes a work credit requirement for SSDI benefits. A work credit is used to measure how much a person has worked in three-month increments. The amount of work credits needed to obtain SSDI benefits will depend on your age at the onset of your disability.

    In addition to the work credit requirement, this type of Social Security benefits are only available for individuals who are too disabled to maintain gainful employment. There is no “partial disability,” meaning that SSDI only covers those with a complete, permanent disability. Other benefits might be available in cases where a person is likely to recover at some point.

    It can be difficult to identify whether these disability requirements have been met or not. A Social Security expert could help you in establishing your eligibility and filing an appeal in the event of one or more denials.
