SOCIAL SECURITY DISABILITY

Rothstein Law Group PLC social security disability attorneys have been helping clients obtain Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits for over 40 years. Under these Social Security programs, individuals can receive monthly checks and often medical coverage. If you are not working because of an illness, an injury or emotional problems, you may be eligible to receive SSDI or SSI benefits.

Our lawyers can aid in your appeal if you have been denied benefits.
Please contact us for a free consultation designed to provide useful information on disability laws, your rights and the ways in which our Social Security lawyers can significantly improve your chances of obtaining benefits.

We only charge a fee when we get results and you get paid.

SSDI AND SSI PROGRAMS

There are important distinctions between the SSDI and SSI programs:

  • Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) provides benefits to disabled people (including certain disabled dependents) who have paid into the Social Security trust fund through the Federal Insurance Contributions Act (FICA) taxes.
  • Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a needs-based program providing financial aid to disabled people who meet low-income guidelines. SSI program benefits are available to the disabled regardless of their employment history.

According to the Social Security Act, to qualify for disability payments (either SSDI or SSI) you must prove that you cannot do any work for which you are suited due to a medical condition that is expected to last for a minimum of a year or is terminal. While an estimated 6.5 million people received Social Security benefits last year, many first time applicants were denied and others had their benefits terminated. Insufficient medical proof of a disabling physical or mental impairment is often to blame for a negative outcome.

FILING AN APPLICATION

Our firm is available for legal support throughout the claims process and can offer invaluable assistance in all of your interactions with the Social Security Administration. We accept clients even before their applications are filed. We can help you complete applications and other forms and collect medical records or other necessary documentation. Your attorney will help appeal your claim if you are denied benefits and will ensure that all requirements and deadlines are met. If you must appear before a Social Security Administrative Law Judge in a hearing to determine your eligibility for disability, your attorney will prepare you for the hearing and present your case before the judge.
