If you have been injured or have a chronic or long-term illness, you may qualify for Social Security Disability Income (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI). SSDI and SSI are benefits paid through two federal programs. SSDI is paid based upon work history and SSI is paid based upon financial need.
While it may seem simple – you are either able to work or you aren’t – actually obtaining SSDI and/or SSI benefits can be very difficult. The application and appeals process can be confusing and lengthy, or you may make a mistake in your application process by failing to properly and completely note your medical history.
An experienced SSDI and SSI attorney can help you avoid potential problems and delays in obtaining the benefits you so desperately need and deserve.
