Our government has enacted certain programs, such as the Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) program, to provide you with relief if you become disabled and can no longer work. Unfortunately, the filing process can be very complicated and you may get bogged down in confusing federal bureaucracy while you try to receive your benefits.
The Atlanta Social Security Disability attorney at Robbins & Associates, PC can help you through the filing process to ensure that you receive the maximum allowable benefits in a timely manner. If you have already filed your application and had it denied by the Social Security Administration, our attorney can help you with your appeal.
The SSDI and SSI Programs
There are two programs which can provide you with relief if you have suffered a disability which prevents you from earning a living. Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) provides monthly disability payments to people under the retirement age who are no longer able to perform their work duties and have accumulated enough quarters of work credit to qualify for benefits. Supplemental Social Security Income (SSI) provides monthly disability benefits to individuals who have not worked long enough to qualify for SSDI.
In order to be eligible for one of these programs, you must meet a variety of criteria established by the Social Security Administration. Determining who meets these criteria has evolved into a complex process requiring the assistance of a skilled SSDI lawyer to ensure that all requirements are met.
