Supporting Our Clients With Dignity And Respect

Wondering If You Can Get Social Security Disability Benefits?

Disability benefits through the Social Security Administration are an important means of support for those who can’t work. Both Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) provide financial benefits. Both have strict eligibility requirements.

If you’re not sure whether you’re eligible, talk to our lawyer at Durkin Law Offices in Wisconsin. Our team is very familiar with the details of disability benefits. We want you to have access to the full benefits you deserve. Our lawyer can help you pursue them.

Eligibility For Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI)

To qualify for this program, you must:

  • Have a disability that’s expected to last at least 12 months
  • Be unable to support yourself because of the disability
  • Have a sufficient work history

It can be confusing to calculate whether you have enough work history to qualify. Attorney Thomas Durkin can review yours and let you know if you qualify.

Eligibility For Supplemental Security Income (SSI)

This program offers benefits for those who:

  • Are age 65 or older
  • At any age, have a disability that prevents them from working for at least 12 months
  • Are blind
  • Have limited financial means

There are strict income and asset limits for qualifying so it is a good idea to have a lawyer review your application.

What Is A Disability?

A disability under both programs refers to a medical condition, whether physical or mental, that prevents you from engaging in “substantial gainful employment.” Some conditions are automatically considered disabilities. Others require detailed evidence, including medical evidence, to establish that it qualifies.
