Social Security Disability Benefits Can Make A Real Difference
Whether it happened as the result of an accident that happened in an instant, or if it was because of a condition that developed over time, realizing you are no longer able to work can be a stressful realization. You may have spent most of your life taking care of yourself and others. Now you need help.
Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits are designed to help those who are no longer able to work for whatever reason.
There are two different types of SSD benefits:
- Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) — SSDI is a disability benefits program that is focused on helping those with a sufficient history of work and contributing to Social Security. Given that contributions to Social Security are deducted from everyone’s paychecks, most people who become unable to work later in life should apply for SSDI rather than Supplemental Security Income.
- Supplemental Security Income (SSI) — SSI is designed to help those who are unable to work, but who have yet to establish a significant work history and level of contribution to Social Security. This program is geared toward those who either became unable to work at a young age or who were born with conditions that prevent them from working.
Our firm is here to help people through every stage of the process, from initial applications to appeals.
