Social Security Disability Benefits: Financial Help When You Can’t Work

A disability, whether physical or mental, can impact your life in countless ways. If you can’t work because of a disability, you might qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits through the Social Security Administration. Our lawyer at Durkin Law Offices can help you get the benefits you deserve.

Based in the state of Wisconsin, we are committed to making a difference. We know how challenging it is to live with a disability. Financial struggles make it all the more difficult. Our goal is to lift your financial burdens by getting you the benefits you deserve.

Types Of Social Security Disability Benefits

There are two main types of disability benefits:

  • Social Security Disability Insurance, also called SSDI, is available for those who have enough work history. To qualify, you must demonstrate that you have a long-term disability that prevents you from working.
  • Supplemental Security Income, also called SSI, is available for those with disabilities whose income and assets are below certain levels. You don’t need a work history to qualify.

Our dedicated Social Security Disability attorney will help you determine which benefits you qualify for. With his experience, insight and attention to detail, he will carefully examine your situation and circumstances to make sure you get the financial support you deserve.

The SSDI/SSI Process – Don’t Give Up

Getting benefits isn’t always easy. You will have to submit a detailed application to the Social Security Administration. Many people get denied at this stage, particularly if they don’t have adequate medical evidence of their disability. We can help you submit a strong application from the start.

If you’ve already been denied, you may have multiple opportunities to appeal, including:

  • A request for reconsideration
  • A hearing before an administrative law judge
  • Review by the Appeals Council
  • An appeal to federal court

There are strict deadlines for appeals. You don’t want to squander those opportunities. Talk with our team about how we can help you get your case turned around.
