It is not easy supporting you or your family with the current economic climate. This becomes even more difficult if you are injured or have some type of disability and need even more assistance.

Filing for Social Security Disability (SSD) Benefits or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) can be available to you and we are here to guide you through the legal system to file and succeed in your claims.
Should you apply for benefits?
We help clients answer this question all the time to help determine if they should apply for SSD or SSI and work with them and the Social Security Administration (SSA) to see if you quality. There are five questions provided by the SSA that determines your eligibility
1. Are you working?
If you are working in 2013 and your earnings average more than $1,040 a month, you generally cannot be considered disabled.
If you are not working, we go to Step 2.
2. Is your condition “severe”?
Your condition must interfere with basic work-related activities for your claim to be considered. If it does not, we will find that you are not disabled.
If your condition does interfere with basic work-related activities, we go to Step 3.
3. Is your condition disabling?
For each of the major body systems, we maintain a list of medical conditions that are so severe they automatically mean that you are disabled. If your condition is not on the list, we have to decide if it is of equal severity to a medical condition that is on the list. If it is, we will find that you are disabled. If it is not, we then go to Step 4.
- Compassionate Allowances: Certain cases that usually qualify for disability can be allowed as soon as the diagnosis is confirmed. Examples include acute leukemia, Lou Gehrig’s disease (ALS) and pancreatic cancer.
- Quick Disability Determinations: We use sophisticated computer screening to identify cases with a high probability of allowance

4. Can you do the work you did before?
If your condition is severe but not at the same or equal level of severity as a medical condition on the list, then we must determine if it interferes with your ability to do the work you did previously. If it does not, your claim will be denied. If it does, we proceed to Step 5.
5. Can you do any other work?
If you cannot do the work you did in the past, we see if you are able to adjust to other work.
We consider your medical conditions and your age, education, past work experience and any transferable skills you may have. If you cannot adjust to other work, your claim will be approved. If you can adjust to other work, your claim will be denied.
Regardless of your answers to these questions, you may still quality for SSD or SSI. These benefits may be available to you or a close family member if your claims are approved.
