Find Out About Your Eligibility for SSDI Benefits

Unlike workers' compensation, the Social Security disability insurance (SSDI) program does not require that your injury or medical condition result from a work-related cause. The eligibility criteria instead focus on prior work history and the actual inability to work for an extended period of time.

Although the conventional wisdom in SSDI practice holds that you can expect to go through several rounds of appeal before your application of benefits will eventually be approved, our lawyers know how to present a claimant's medical history and evidence of disability in a way that tends to enhance your ability to establish a right to payment at an earlier stage of the process. This includes overcoming claim denials wherever possible.

If you're over 50 years of age, our techniques for developing a strong Social Security Disability application are even more effective.

You won't be eligible for SSDI benefits until you show a period of disability from working for at least one year. If we get the chance to handle a workers' compensation or personal injury claim soon after you suffered a traumatic injury, we can look ahead toward the possibility of an SSDI claim from the very beginning of the case. We can also protect your interests in situations where your injury at first appeared to be relatively minor, but for whatever reason your recovery was slowed or complicated.

Social Security Disability benefits are also available for people with chronic or degenerative medical conditions related to heart disease, diabetes, neurological problems or the disabling effects of multiple illnesses together.
