Social Security Disability
Our firm focuses primarily on matters pertaining to Social Security Disability. Disability benefits are paid through two programs: Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI).
Social Security Disability is paid to those who are unable to work because of a long-lasting or terminal medical condition. This program requires that you have some work history and does not give money to people who are short-term or partially disabled. Not only can you receive benefits, but your partner, dependent children and parents, and divorced spouse may be eligible to receive benefits as well.
SSI is for those who are blind, disabled, and elderly and does not require a work history. This program takes your income and available resources into consideration.
Social Security Disability benefits are only paid if you prove that you are unable to work at all, not just at your previous job. You must prove you can’t perform any job duties taking into consideration your age, education and experience.
After you apply, the SSA will look over your application and your medical records before giving you a decision. If their decision isn’t in your favor, Drew L. Johnson, P.C. Attorneys at Law will step in to fight for your benefits. We’ll help you receive a reconsideration of your case and, if needed, take your claim to the court, should your reconsideration be denied.
