Applying for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) can be confusing and frustrating. Many people give up after having their application denied, not understanding the subsequent steps that can be taken.
The Social Security Administration (SSA) has very specific requirements that must be met to qualify for any type of disability benefits. Determining factors include how many years you have worked, how much you have paid into the program, and whether or not you are able to work.
Further, depending on your specific circumstances and symptoms, medical proof must sufficiently support your claim. The guidelines are different for each set of symptoms, which can be extremely difficult to decipher.
Having an experienced disability lawyer working for you will greatly improve the chances of your claim being approved. Whether you are applying for the first time, or have been denied, the Social Security disability attorneys at the Antonowicz Group can walk you through the process.
