Social Security consists of two main programs, Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI). The application and appeal process for each program is similar, but with very different requirements. In order to be eligible for SSDI, you must have worked the required amount of quarters by paying into the Social Security system through your taxes and be totally disabled from work. This program is not affected by the amount of money in your bank account. In order to be eligible for SSI, you must have under the required amount of “readily available assets” and be totally disabled from work. You do not have to have worked in order to be eligible for the SSI program.
Social Security will deny a majority of those individuals who apply. Being represented by our firm during the course of your claim will maximize your chances of obtaining benefits early on in the process. Call us today and collect the benefits to which you are entitled.
