Social Security Disability Insurance

We Represent Claimants in SSDI Appeals

The Social Security Administration (SSA) wants to be sure that every decision made about your Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) claim is correct. The SSA carefully considers all the information in your case before it makes any decisions that affect your eligibility or your benefit amount. When the SSA makes a decision on your claim, it will send you a letter explaining the decision. If you do not agree with the decision, you can appeal — that is, ask the SSA to look at your case again. When you ask for an appeal, the SSA will look at the entire decision, even those parts that were in your favor. We have been successful in obtaining benefits for thousands of clients in SSDI appeals.

About Social Security Disability

If you have worked and paid Social Security taxes for five out of the last 10 years, and are now totally disabled due to illness or injury, you may qualify for Social Security Disability (SSDI) benefits. First, you must be able to prove to the Social Security Administration (SSA) that you cannot perform your former job or any other type of work now that you are disabled. Your condition must also be one that will last, or is expected to last, 12 months or longer. Please call my office if you have any questions about your eligibility.

Disability Benefits

Some of the disabling conditions that can make someone eligible for Social Security Disability benefits include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Arthritis
  • Asthma
  • Back Problems
  • Cancer
  • Carpal tunnel Syndrome
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome & Other Immune System Disorders
  • Diabetes
  • Heart Disease
  • Kidney Disease
  • Lung Disease
  • Lupus
  • Psychiatric Problems

Social Security Administration

The SSA uses a formula based on your average lifetime earnings and the total number of years you have worked to calculate the SSD benefit amount. If you have a family, you could receive additional benefits, up to 50 percent of your own monthly benefit amount.
