Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) Benefits Eligibility:

If you suffer from a medical condition and cannot work, you may be eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits. Contact our office today for a FREE consultation. We will evaluate your case and inform you of your eligibility.

Having an experienced Social Security disability attorney on your side can make a big difference in your case. An application for Social Security disability benefits is an important part of financial planning.  In the event you or someone you know, becomes unable to work, Social Security disability benefits can bridge the gap while you work with your physician to try and get better. While the monthly checks may not be a substitute for regular earnings, the additional benefits that come along with entitlement to Social Security disability can help in a time of need.

Who is eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits or SSI benefits?

To receive SSDI or SSI, you must suffer from an injury or illness that has lasted or can be expected to last for a continuous period of not less than 12 months, or is terminal.  Many conditions are considered to be disabling by Social Security, including both physical and mental disorders.

Our office will make it less stressful and easier to file for benefits:

An experienced SSDI attorney will file your Initial Application for you.  A lot of information is requested by SSA and must be provided accurately and fully to receive an award of benefits.  We will work with you to help assemble the information required to complete your application and get your claim approved. We know what Social Security is looking for in a successful application for benefits.

Have you already applied for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits or SSI benefits?

An attorney will review your application to be sure you have submitted all required forms and paperwork.  Many claims are denied for basic omissions or other technicalities. We know the proper way to present your SSDI or SSI claim.

Have you received a denial of your SSDI or SSI benefits application?

A denial of the Initial Application is not uncommon.  An attorney will file an appeal and continue navigating the application process for you at the Reconsideration level.  If you are denied again, an attorney will then file a Request for Hearing with an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) close to where you live and attend the in-person hearing with you.  Many claims are approved at the hearing level, but if not, then we will appeal the ALJ’s ruling to the Appeals Council for further review.

How much will it cost to hire an attorney to handle your claim?

Our legal fees are regulated by SSA and we work on a contingency fee basis.  This means we do not receive any legal fees, unless we win your claim.  Depending upon the case, the client will be responsible for out-of-pocket expenses for medical records costs related to the claim.  These expenses are for costs incurred for photocopying charges and payments made to doctors and hospitals for medical records and reports.  Total expenses are generally between $100-$200 and can be paid at the end of your case.

If you are receiving treatment from a doctor for injuries or medical conditions for any reason, you should consider applying for Social Security Disability (SSDI) benefits or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits today.  Please call or email our office for a FREE consultation, as we are here to help.  We can be reached at (703) 241-2625 or via email at info@cervonidisabilitylaw.com.
