What is Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI)?

SSDI is an insurance policy that you’ve paid into. It is not a handout or welfare program. Most Americans know about Social Security retirement benefits, but many do not understand how SSDI works. Just like retirement benefits, disability benefits are made up of your money too. The SSA takes a percent of your paycheck and stores that money in a fund in case you become disabled and cannot work.

While no one wants to be out of work, SSDI and SSI are there to help if you become disabled. Contact us today for a free consultation. Our Social Security disability attorneys handle claims in all 50 states and Puerto Rico.

Was your application denied?

You’re not alone. Most people are denied initially — about 70 percent of those who apply are denied. That’s why we’re here to assist you through the process.

Our attorneys will help you with the reconsideration process. Once that step is complete, we will request a judicial hearing and accompany you before the judge to advocate on your behalf. The majority of appeals will receive the judge’s approval, but some do not. If you disagree with the judge’s decision, we submit an appeal to the Appeals Council. If denied once again, we will request a case review by a Federal District Court.

Filing for SSDI or SSI can be a long, difficult process, but we will make it as smooth as possible for you.
