If you have a physical or mental health condition that prevents you from working at any job for at least 12 months, you may be eligible for Social Security disability and/or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) monthly benefits. You may also be able to collect a lump sum as a retroactive payment.
These individuals who have paid social security taxes in connection with their previous employment may be eligible for Social Security Disability (SSDI) benefits. To qualify for SSDI you must have worked at least 5 of the last 10 years. Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits are available for adults who have not worked and who meet certain income and resource requirements. Children may qualify for social security benefits, if they suffer from marked and severe impairments in functioning.
You can apply at any Social Security office or online at www.socialsecuirty.gov. Most people who apply are initially denied but many of these people ultimately receive benefits. It is important not to give up. Our lawyers can help.
If you think you may have a Social Security Disability claim, please call our toll free number or complete the contact form on this website. We can help you no matter where you live. We will conduct an initial consultation to determine whether you may be eligible for benefits. There is no charge for our initial consultation.
And remember, I don’t get paid unless you get paid.*
