Social Security Disability Law

Individuals with mental or physical health problems are less likely to be employed — and the elder law attorneys at The Elder Law Firm PC know more people are being forced to file for early Social Security Disability. In this economy, it becomes more difficult to find gainful employment when you have health problems; forcing many to seek Social Security Disability Income.

If you are unable to perform any substantial work because of your medical condition — and your medical condition has lasted, or it is expected to last at least one year, or results in your death — then you are disabled under the Social Security definition.

You may collect Social Security Disability Insurance Benefits (DIB) for yourself and your surviving spouse and children if you are an insured worker. Individuals with little or no income and resources are eligible to collect Supplemental Security Income (SSI).

Everyone knows that Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits can be extremely difficult to obtain. Many people feel that the system is designed to be so complicated and time-consuming that the average applicant will simply give up the struggle to win. Many people also feel that the system expects you to give up on fighting for the benefits you deserve!

You can’t win a social security case in today's courtroom with just the lawyer and the client — you have to have the help of their doctors, too. Our professional and caring social security attorneys are experienced and comfortable working with clients’ physicians to obtain the best possible results.

When your SSA disability benefits are denied and you contact us and are invited to retain us, we challenge the Social Security Administration and obtain the Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits to which you are entitled! There is no charge for our services unless we win your case! There is no out-of-pocket expense to you for our services, because our fee comes from any back payment owed to you by Social Security when we win your case.
