People Who Are Eligible for Social Security Disability and SSI Benefits
There are many reasons why people may qualify for SSDI or SSI benefits. Usually, they cannot work because they have a medical condition that is expected to last at least one year or result in death. But medical conditions can include mental health issues and physical disabilities.
Applying for Social Security Disability and SSI Benefits
No matter what reason you have for applying, you should apply for Social Security Disability and SSI benefits as soon as you become disabled. A complete application for Social Security Disability or SSI benefits includes detailed medical records that document your medical history, treatment and symptoms.
Your medical records are critical to your success because they tell the story of your disability. These records come from many sources — from your doctors, therapists, hospitals, clinics and caseworkers.
In addition to your application, there are other forms you need to fill out. It is often possible to fill these out yourself. But the guidance of an attorney can help make sure they are filled out correctly. It can also help make the process less overwhelming.
When Social Security Disability or SSI Benefits Have Been Denied
There are several different steps involved in appealing a denial of a Social Security Disability claim. After the first denial, you may need to petition for reconsideration. If you have been denied a second time, a hearing before an administrative law judge is required. If that is unsuccessful, arguing your case before the Appeals Council may be the answer. No matter what stage you are at in your application, I can help.
