Understanding Social Security Disability Insurance
SSDI is a monthly benefit payment for disabled people and certain family members who cannot work. Qualification for benefits is contingent on a person building up work credits through tax payments into the Social Security system.
With strict rules for obtaining benefits, it is necessary to prove your physical or mental impairment has lasted or will last for more than 12 months, or is likely to result in death. In addition, to qualify the disability must prevent a person’s ability to take on substantial levels of work.
Due to the strict criteria and frequency of claims denials, many people choose to hire a Social Security disability lawyer to support and guide them through the process of securing the monthly benefits they are entitled to.

Common Questions About Social Security Disability Insurance
The Social Security Administration will require medical records and information about doctors, medical tests, medication and more when applying for SSDI. We can help identify and access all necessary information for an application.
You have 60 days to request an appeal in writing after an SSDI claim is denied. Speaking to a Social Security disability attorney can help identify a strategy for winning an appeal.
SSDI is frequently denied because a person has failed to provide detailed medical records, sends incomplete documentation or has not accumulated enough tax credits in the system.
