Social Security pays benefits to people who cannot work because they have a medical condition that is expected to last at least one year or result in death. People who meet the strict criteria for disability may be eligible for Disability Insurance benefits, Supplemental Security Income, or both. Disability Insurance Benefits are available to people who have worked and paid Social Security taxes for a certain amount of time. Supplemental Security Income is available to people who have low income and few assets.
Applying for Social Security Disability benefits is often a frustrating and time-consuming process. Many applicants are overwhelmed by the paperwork. Even legitimate claims frequently get denied. Over 60% of applicants are denied benefits at the initial stage of application, and over 80% of those who appeal are denied at the reconsideration level. Given those odds, having an experienced Social Security attorney or advocate to handle your application correctly from the start can be extremely beneficial.
