We help you get the Social Security benefits you need and deserve.
Are you out of work due to a serious illness, injury, or disability? You may qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), Supplemental Security Income (SSI), or Disabled Widow Benefits (DWB). These programs are designed to provide individuals, just like you, with the supplemental income you need to get back on your feet after a hardship.
However, these programs are not as simple as they sound. Claims are subject to a tangle of red tape and restrictions that make it extremely difficult for disabled individuals to prove their own need for benefits. If you want the very best chance of having your Social Security Disability, Supplemental Security Income, or Disabled Widow Benefits approved, you need to get professional help with your application or appeal.

There Are Three Types of Social Security Benefits: SSI, SSDI, and DWB
Social Security Income (SSI) is distributed, in the form of monthly payments, to people with low income and limited resources. In order to qualify for this Social Security program, a person has to be at least 65 years of age or older, blind, or disabled.
Under the Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) program, Social Security pays benefits to people unable to work due to a medical condition. This condition must be expected to last at least one year. Social Security will not pay benefits to people who have partial disability or a short-term disability.
Disabled Widow Benefits (DWB) is given to widows, widowers, or surviving divorced spouses whose marriage lasted 10 years or more, who have a disability. To be eligible for this program a person must be between the ages of 50 and 60 and the disability must have started before or within seven years of the worker’s death.
Don’t Make a Mistake That Could Cost You Thousands
Of the roughly 2.5 million Social Security Disability benefit applications made every year, the vast majority will be rejected or delayed due to simple, preventable errors. For example, individuals often:
- Leave out medical details
- Forget to include a complete work history
- Make errors in financial information
- Get dates wrong
- Use the wrong code numbers or ID numbers
- Make typos or other errors that make the application hard to process

We will make sure your application is accurate and complete before submitting it, so you can get your benefits as quickly as possible. If your claim proceeds to a hearing, you will have an experienced attorney there to prepare you for the hearing and represent you in front of the Administrative Law Judge.
