If you are unable to work because of a physical or mental impairment, you may be eligible for Social Security Disability (SSD) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI).
These programs use the same disability standards, but Social Security Disability almost always pays more. Social Security Disability benefits are better for persons who qualify. Helpful information is available on the web at SOCIAL SECURITY ONLINE.
Social Security Disability Benefits Denied?
Most claims for benefits are initially denied by the government. The standards for determining disability are often incorrectly applied, resulting in many improper denials.

The biggest mistake that many claimants make is not filing an appeal from the denial. An experienced Social Security Disability lawyer makes a difference. We will help you appeal your denial. We will get you a hearing before a judge. We will take the time to get to know you, to understand your claim, to put your strongest case before the judge. There's no fee unless you win.
