Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is a federally run benefits program that provides aid to people who are unable to achieve gainful employment due to a disabling medical condition. In order to qualify for SSDI, you must suffer from a permanent condition that prevents you from working.
Currently, the annual number of applications for SSDI is at an all time high. Due to the limited resources of the Social Security Administration (SSA) and the extreme volume of applications processed, more than 60% of initial stage applications are denied. In the reconsideration stage of appeal, the number jumps to well over 80%. Given those odds, having a qualified Social Security attorney help you to correctly handle your application and the potential appeals process can be extremely beneficial.
The SSDI application process can be overwhelming, particularly in light of the prevailing trend towards denial at the initial stage. LAMA’s network of attorneys will help you know and understand your options in the case of a denial. Additionally, our attorneys will help you organize paperwork and medical records, prepare you and/or your witnesses for hearing, and have familiarity dealing with SSA offices and judges in across the state.
