One-On-One Guidance To Help You Recover Social Security Disability Benefits
A disability can change your financial circumstances. Many people suffering from a disability – whether mental or physical–simply cannot work to earn a living for themselves or their family.
Fortunately, resources are available. Social Security Disability (SSD) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) are two options you or your loved one can apply to receive financial assistance.

Understanding SSI Versus SSDI Benefits
The Social Security Disability rules, process and procedures are confusing to many people who need benefits. There are many misconceptions about how SSDI and SSI work and their differences. Let us help explain both:
SSI Benefits Are Available To Those With Limited Assets
SSI, also referred to as Supplemental Security Income, is provided to individuals with limited financial means, rather than his or her prior income history. If the total value of your assets falls below a certain amount, you may qualify to receive SSI benefits.
SSDI Benefits Are Based On Prior Work History
SSDI, also known as Social Security Disability Insurance, is available to those who have accumulated credits based on the FICA taxes taken out of their individual paychecks through the years. The number of credits accumulated will determine your eligibility and how much you can expect to receive.
Denied Claim? Don’t Give Up.
Applying for SSD and SSI benefits can be challenging, particularly if you have already applied for benefits and been denied. Unfortunately, this is common, but it’s important not to give up hope. In many cases, denied claims are due to a clerical error or missed filing deadline. At our firm, our attorneys can review your claims and your situation and offer guidance on how to apply or appeal your claim.
