If you have recently been diagnosed with a disability, or have been disabled for some time, you may be entitled to Social Security Disability Insurance Benefits (SSD/SSDI) or Supplemental Social Security Income (SSI). SSD is a federal program that provides a regular income for people who have recently become disabled and suffer from a physical or mental disability that makes it impossible to engage in meaningful employment. SSI is a federal program for those who have been unable to work because of a disability for a longer period of time. You may also be entitled to SSI benefits if you have children with special needs or a disability.
If you have recently become disabled, the SSD process can be frustrating because applying for disability takes a long time and applicants are often denied when they first attempt to file for benefits. At Goodin Abernathy our group of lawyers will walk with you through the appeals process and fight for you at a hearing before an administrative law judge.
We understand that if you are injured and cannot work, there are financial strains and emotional hardships that accompany your physical or mental disability. Our team of lawyers are sensitive to your financial, physical, and emotional needs and will work with you during the long and complex application and appeals process in your pursuit of financial stability through Social Security Benefits.
