Individuals with mental and/or physical conditions that prevent them from sustaining work may be eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits. To be eligible for Social Security disability insurance, you must not make more than $1,350 a month and your condition makes it impossible to work.

Beyond this requirement there are also some other factors that need consideration like how long an individual has been out of work or if they've had any credits before applying which will help with approval rates.

The SSDI application process can be a frustrating one, especially if you are denied after the first time. Even when appealing this decision it's likely that 80% of your appeal will also not work out in favor for you

There are many reasons why someone could be denied Social Security benefits, and their attorney or advocate will help them understand what they can do about it. They'll also prepare the paperwork needed for submitting this claim with SSA so that legal representative knows exactly how best to proceed from there on your behalf - all while making sure any additional documentation is sent along if requested by you in advance.

Who is eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance Benefits?

These are the main criteria for eligibility:

  • Be unable to work because you have a medical condition that is expected to last at least one year
  • Your disability must not be short term
  • Your disability must meet SSA’s definition of a disability.
  • You must be younger than your full retirement age.

If you are already receiving disability benefits you may also be able to improve your current package

How do attorneys charge for SSDI Cases?

Most disability advocates work on a “contingency basis,” meaning that they don't collect fees unless you win your claim. If found not disabled and there's no need for payment of any kind - including representation- then their job is done!

In most cases, attorneys will receive 25% of any back due benefits you may be entitled to, up to $6,000. Even if 25% of your back due benefits equals more than $6,000, you will only pay up to $6,000.
