Do You Need Social Security Disability Benefits?
You've paid into the system. An attorney can help when you're in need.
Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is a government program that provides income for people who are no longer able to work due to a disability. In principle, the system is simple. If you've worked in jobs covered by Social Security, you should be covered under Social Security Disability when you become disabled. All you need to do is apply.
In practice, it's much more difficult. The majority of initial applications are denied, often for arcane reasons. You'll have to go through a complex appeals process with strict deadlines, and one mistake can make it impossible to receive the benefits you need. However, with an experienced social security disability lawyer on your side to help you through the process, your application is much more likely to succeed.
