Do you suffer from a disabling injury or medical condition that prevents you from being able to work or perform other everyday activities? If so, you might be entitled to disability benefits from the Social Security Administration (SSA).
It’s a well-known fact, however, that SSA has many strict rules and regulations, which make the process of receiving these benefits arduous and sometimes lengthy. People are oftentimes denied on their first attempt and then become discouraged.
Having a trusted disability lawyer on your side can make all the difference in getting you the benefits you need and deserve. Call the disability attorneys here at Littman & Babiarz Law Office to get started on your case today.
What Types of Social Security Benefits are Available?
There are two main types of Social Security benefits – Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). Depending on your circumstances, you may be entitled to one or both benefits.
Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is meant to help disabled individuals who are having difficulty meeting basic needs, such as shelter, food, and clothing. Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) provides support to those disabled individuals whose physical or mental condition prevents them from performing their job or any other type of work.
What Is Required to Receive Social Security Disability Benefits?
First and foremost, you must be able to prove the impact that your disability has on your everyday life. Are there basic functions, such as bathing, that you are unable to do for yourself? What is the extent of your physical limitations? How is your mental and emotional health?
Our experienced disability attorneys here at Littman & Babiarz Law Firm will ask you these questions and more to properly vet you for all of the physical and mental requirements of the SSA process – whether it be an initial application or an appeal.
Being disabled is difficult. At the very least, having experienced attorneys on your side to help you through the process should make an otherwise daunting experience more manageable.
