Handling SSDI and SSI Claims

If you paid FICA taxes for at least five of the 10 years prior to becoming disabled, the Social Security Administration (SSA) will then ask for proof of your disability. If you meet both the employment and disability requirements, you will be eligible to collect Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits.

If you have not paid any money into the system but you still meet the disability criteria, you can apply for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits.

Our experienced lawyers can help you determine whether you are eligible to file for SSDI or SSI. In addition, we can help you to:

  • Understand what kind of information the SSA is looking for
  • Fill out the initial application forms accurately and effectively
  • Appeal a denied claim or prepare for a disability hearing, if necessary
