If you are an adult who cannot work full time due to your disability, or a child whose condition fulfills requirements for a disability, Solomon Law can help you qualify for Social Security Disability benefits.
Two kinds of disability programs exist, SSDI (Social Security Disability Insurance) and SSI (Supplemental Security Income). SSDI is available to people who have a work history and have acquired enough work credits within the Social Security System. SSDI typically pays a higher benefit rate than SSI. SSI is available to people who do not have enough work credits, but qualify on the basis of economic need.
Two basic methods exist for being awarded disability. Both SSDI and SSI use these same tests. The first is to meet one of the descriptions issued by Social Security for a “medical listing.” This involves having a number of traits possibly associated with your condition. This method essentially is the only one available for children. The second method is to meet the definition of disability set forth in “grid” graphs developed by Social Security. These grids weigh various factors in your life, including your age, educational background, work history, and physical limitations. The vast majority of claimants who win their Social Security Disability case do so by the grid method.
Many people think that if they supply their medical records to Social Security, they should win their case. But other steps often need to be taken. Solomon Law knows these steps, and will do everything needed to give you your best chance to win.
We can help you at any stage of the Social Security Disability process, including an initial application for benefits, appealing to a Judge, or later appeals to other levels of review.
