What is the Difference Between Social Security Disability (SSD) and Supplemental Security Income?

SSD are benefits that you can receive if you have become disabled and have payed into the Social Security system long and recently enough. Similarly, SSI are also benefits paid to those approved disabled, but they are limited to those who demonstrate that they are facing excessive financial disparity. 

Why Do I Need an Attorney to Receive my Social Security Disability (SSD) Benefits?

You do have the option to submit your application and go through the process without an attorney. However, applying for your benefits, proving your case, or even earning a hearing can prove to be extremely time and energy-consuming. Our professionals have spent years reviewing different cases and helping people find relief during these troubling times.

An application alone does not mean that you will earn these benefits that you have worked for. Unfortunately, people who desperately need help are sometimes turned away, whether their case wasn’t pled correctly or there was an error in their application. Our attorneys can help you re-file or deal with the appeals process if need be.
