The Social Security system seems to get more complicated every year. Several different types of benefits are managed by the Social Security Administration (SSA), but in some cases eligibility for these benefits is determined by state agencies under contract with the federal government.

We know firsthand that a disability can be very difficult on a family – physically, emotionally, and financially. Guiding others through the Social Security disability system and helping them receive the benefits they deserve is our passion.

We help those in need throughout the entire process, from determining if you are eligible, to filing, and even appealing a benefits denial.

Qualifying and Applying for SSDI Benefits in Alpharetta

The process of applying for SSDI benefits and proving qualification can require a substantial investment of time, effort, and knowledge. To qualify for disability benefits under SSDI, a disabled employee must have worked for at least ten years and at least five of those years must be within ten years of the start of the disability. In addition, the employee must demonstrate that their level of disability is so severe that they are unable to perform any type of gainful employment. Moreover, the disability must stem from a long term medical condition that is expected to last at least a year or lead to death before the end of a year.

In your application, it is important to use the correct terminology in describing medical conditions to demonstrate the full severity of a disability. It is also essential to substantiate a claim with the proper documentation. Our Social Security lawyers in Alpharetta are experienced in handling SSDI or other SSA benefit claims, and want to help applicants throughout the process to give them the best chances of receiving all the benefits they deserve.

The SSA Administers Benefits to Fulfill Different Needs

When it comes to benefits provided by the Social Security Administration (SSA), people are generally most familiar with the retirement benefits paid out to those who have worked in eligible jobs for at least ten years or more. The SSA also pays survivor benefits to the spouses, children, or parents of an eligible worker who passes away. In addition, Social Security pays dependent benefits to spouses, children, and even grandchildren of workers who are receiving retirement or disability benefits, if certain conditions are met.

The SSA also pays Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) to workers who meet certain qualifications and have become fully disabled. Finally, those who are disabled but do not have sufficient work history to qualify for SSDI benefits may still receive benefits under the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) system. SSI benefits are typically available for those with low amounts of income. In fact, those with limited resources may be eligible to receive both SSI benefits and SSDI or SSA retirement benefits. A Social Security lawyer on our team is ready to review your case and discuss all of your legal options.
