Social Security Disability
If your injury has led you to pursue Social Security Disability Insurance, or SSDI, or Supplemental Security Income, or SSI, you can quickly feel disheartened or overwhelmed with the process. Or, maybe your injury has you worried that you may not be able to work successfully for an extended amount of time and you aren’t sure if SSDI or SSI is even an option. It is tricky and can be a confusing system, especially for someone who is injured, anxious, and in pain. That’s where the team at Grewer Law steps in.
Individuals who cannot engage in substantial, gainful activity due to physical or mental impairment likely to last 12 months or more could be eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance, or SSDI. You can qualify for SSDI if you are fully insured through payroll deduction. If you don’t have a work history or are not insured through a payroll deduction, Supplemental Security Income, or SSI, could be an option as long as you meet certain asset levels.
In order to receive SSDI or SSI, you must apply, which can feel like a Herculean task after an injury. To make matters even more frustrating, most people who apply for SSDI or SSI are turned down twice! Denials require fast action, appeals must be filed within 60 days of the denial. If you don’t file within 60 days, you have to start the application process over from the beginning.
The SSDI and SSI application process can be difficult. You shouldn’t go at it alone. Let our team represent you and take care of guiding you through the application and appeal process. You can feel confident that you are in good hands when you allow us to partner with you during your SSDI or SSI process.
