Claimants who are applying for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income benefits (SSI) are often doing so because they were injured on the job or because they suffered an irreversible injury. For some, life-threatening illnesses result in the inability to return to work, which means there is an immediate need for these benefits. We strongly encourage anyone who is applying for SSI or SSDI to seek assistance from an attorney. This process is complicated and it is fairly common for initial claims to be denied. Sometimes, working with an attorney can facilitate the process.
The application process is complicated and leaving pertinent information out can result in an immediate rejection. If you are rejected, you have the right to file an appeal, but you may still be required to provide additional documentation. All of this means a delay in getting much needed benefits. We will carefully review your case, help you understand what documentation is required and make sure your initial application is as complete as possible. This may help reduce the chances of a rejection.
