If you were working before becoming disabled you could be eligible for Social Security Disability Benefits. Social Security Disability (SSD), officially known as Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is part of the Social Security Program which pays retirement benefits to retired people.

SSDI is for people who have been working and paying into the Social Security system out of their paychecks. You have been paying into the system and had to stop working due to illness or injury. You know this, but you still have to prove it to the Social Security Administration (SSA). There are forms to fill out and you will need to provide medical documentation in order to support your claim.

If this sounds complicated and like a good amount of work, that’s because it is. When you are injured, stressed from being out of work, and possibly in pain, you don’t need the additional stress of having to make sure the forms are correctly filled out. And if your claim gets rejected due to an oversight, you are looking at doing it all over again, which is the last thing you need.

The good news is that Help4thePeople has experience going up against the system and has had great success in having first time claims accepted, as well as winning appeals for claims denied the first time. Our Disability Lawyers know the SSDI system and what the SSA is looking for when it comes to accepting or rejecting disability claims.

If you are considering filing an initial claim or an appeal for disability benefits, having an attorney can increase your chances of having your claim approved. Your odds of succeeding can be up to 3 times higher when you have an Social Security Disability Attorney handling your application or appeal.
