Applying for Disability Benefits
The first challenge of applying for disability benefits is figuring out which program (or programs) to apply for. You may be looking at the list of requirement for SSI and SSDI and thinking, “do I qualify for either of these?” or “can I qualify for both?” To get such questions answered, it is best to sit down with an attorney and discuss your particular circumstances. Once I know more about your living situation, income, assets, and disability, for instance, I will be able to help you determine whether you qualify for SSI and/or SSDI.
Do I Really Need a Lawyer?
As a disability and social security lawyer, I am here to offer support when you need help navigating the legal system. In other words, if you’d like me to walk you through the process of applying for disability benefits, I am happy to do so. If, on the other hand, you’ve been denied for SSI or SSDI and aren’t sure what to do next, I will lead you through your next steps and represent you before an administrative judge, if necessary. It is possible that you won’t need an attorney in order to receive SSI, but I stand at the ready should you find yourself in need of legal guidance. To schedule an informative meeting, please don’t hesitate to give me a call.
