Social Security DisabilityThe Social Security Administration (SSA) has various programs that can help disabled workers access benefits after a loss of income. If you suffer from a physical or mental disability that prevents you from working, you may be eligible for these SSA programs.
Unfortunately, the SSA does not make the claims process straightforward or easy. If you need to apply for social security disability benefits, you’ll likely feel lost without the assistance of an attorney. At Lerner, Moore, Silva, Cunningham & Rubel, we have decades of experience helping disabled workers access social security disability benefits.

What Disability Benefits Can You Access?The SSA has two primary disability benefits programs: SSDI and SSI. Let’s explore each of these programs in more detail below:
SSDIThis is a program for individuals between the ages of 18 and 65. It requires you to be disabled and have a specific number of work credits – this will be determined using the number of quarters you work in each financial year.
SSISSI is a program that’s similar to SSDI, but you won’t need any work history to be eligible. This is for disabled individuals that don’t have the same level of work history as SSDI applicants. This program is means-tested.
If you have any questions about the particulars of either of these disability programs, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We’re always happy to help our clients understand the various disability programs the SSA offers.
Disability Benefits: The Application ProcessIf you’re eligible for either of the programs offered by the SSA, you will need to undertake a lengthy application. This process can be difficult if you don’t have experience navigating the SSI or SSDI application. One of the key reasons that applicants are denied claims is because of incorrectly completed applications.
You will need to supply personal details, work history information, the medical evidence of disability, and a host of other documents.
