The requirements to qualify for disability benefits can be vague and difficult to understand. There are many factors that the Social Security Administration (SSA) uses to determine whether you qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits. Your eligibility may depend on your medical history, age, work history, treatment received, and the severity of your illness, injury or disability.
At Wesley, McGrail & Wesley, we know what it takes to succeed on a claim for SSDI or SSI benefits. We can help you determine whether you qualify for benefits, take steps to improve your eligibility and maximize your chances of recovery, and develop a compelling application for benefits.
Generally, you must be impaired for at least 12 months and be unable to perform any work to qualify. Contact us at 850-226-5051 to speak with a lawyer and learn more.
Claim Denied? You May Still Be Eligible.
In recent years, it has become more and more difficult to secure disability benefits from the SSA. Even if you meet the standards for disability to the letter, you may receive an initial denial from the Division of Disability Determinations. Do not give up if your claim is denied and do not file another initial application. Contact an attorney with a proven record of success in Social Security claims — like Michael McGrail at Wesley, McGrail & Wesley.
