If you listen to the news, you probably think social security disability is easy to get. Sadly, it’s really not that easy! The Social Security Administration does offer an online application for disability benefits, but it is rare for a “homemade” application to be approved, simply because there are specific details and verbiage needed for the application. Additionally, various medical records, bills, and legal documents must be sent with it. If you suffer from chronic pain, cancer, mental disorders, pulmonary disorders, orthopedic injuries, arthritis, diabetes and more, you may be eligible.
There are two forms of disability available, Supplemental Security Disability Income (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI). SSDI is based upon your work history and your payment is based upon how much you’ve paid into the system through payroll taxes. SSI is a flat rate for all people and is based on your financial need – if you have “too much” money, you won’t qualify. We can help you get around these restrictions and qualify for the
assistance you deserve.
