Anyone who is unable to work due to a documented physical or mental impairment could be eligible for Social Security disability (SSD) benefits. It is important to realize that most initial applications for SSD are denied for various reasons. Your chances for success increase exponentially when you work alongside an attorney who understands the specific requirements of the SSD application process and the medical proof required for approval.

Should You File for SSDI or SSI Benefits?
While the SSDI and SSI benefits programs both serve people who are unable to work due to a disability, the eligibility criteria and payments are different. Our attorneys can work with you to see which program will be best for you.
In general, people with a substantial history of employment can file an SSDI claim. Those who have worked full-time for about half of the preceding 10 years might be eligible to receive benefits under the SSDI program. We will work with you to determine your eligibility by reviewing your work history, as well as help you obtain the necessary medical proof required to obtain benefits.
What If I Do Not Qualify for SSDI Benefits?
Even if you do not qualify for SSDI benefits due to a lack of work history, you may still be able to receive benefits by filing a SSI claim. Some SSI recipients have never worked a steady job for any of a number of reasons. Instead of demonstrating a record of recent employment, SSI applicants need to show that their assets and income fall below a certain level and that a disability prevents them from holding gainful employment.
