Are you wondering if you can file for Social Security disability benefits? Below, our legal professionals explain what you need to know about the SSI process and how to obtain the benefits you are entitled to.
You can obtain Social Security disability through the following programs:
Both of the programs are health and monetary coverages from the federal government for disabled individuals who aren’t expected to be able to return to work from various injuries or conditions that will last for at least a period of twelve months.
How to the two programs differs depends on your income versus the total time you have worked or obtained “work credits.”
If you want to file a claim for Social Security Disability Insurance, you must have worked enough and recently enough to be eligible for this type of benefit. If you want to file a claim for Supplemental Security Income, your income will need to be low enough to qualify for the program. This means your assets must be assessed to determine your eligibility
The first step you need to take to obtain benefits is to file an application online or at your local Social Security Administration office. Our experienced lawyers can handle this entire process for you to make sure your claim is properly filed. If your claim is denied, you have 60 days to file a request for a hearing or an appeal.
Filing for both types of benefits can be a difficult and stressful process, which why we are here to assist and guide you each step of the way. From filing the application to building your appeal, our lawyers will do everything we can to secure the benefits you deserve.
