Do You Qualify For Social Security Disability Benefits?

Our Social Security disability lawyers are here to help with your claim for benefits or your appeal.If you think you qualify for disability benefits from Social Security, you will first need to determine if you will be applying for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI). Simply put, SSDI is an option for individuals who have worked at least five of the last ten years and have paid into the Social Security system; SSI is for low-income individuals who have not paid into the Social Security system.

Aside from the type of disability benefits you will be applying for, you also need to have a qualifying physical condition or mental disorder eligible for disability benefits. Our clients often suffer from a variety of illnesses and conditions, including:


  • Cancer
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Anxiety
  • Spinal disorders
  • Heart disease
  • Depression
  • Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
  • Diabetes
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Hip and knee injuries
  • Muscle and bone disorders
  • Chronic migraines
  • Strokes and other neurological disorders

Some conditions, like lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, and seizures can be harder to prove, but our law firm will not be deterred and will work tirelessly to help you collect your disability benefits. The overall theme of any kind of disability that you are suffering from is that it must be total disability; the Social Security Administration does not pay out benefits for partial disability or short-term disability.

If we had to describe the Social Security Disability application process in three words, we'd choose complex, confusing, and frustrating. There's nothing easy about applying or appealing a denial and you should not leave any part of receiving disability benefits to chance.
