What Is Social Security Disability Insurance?

Episode 1:  Louisville Social Security Disability Insurance attorney Trevor Smith launches his firm’s podcast.  This episode provides an introduction to his background and why he decided to focus on helping people to file social security disability insurance claims and supplemental security income benefits.

After graduating from law school, Trevor clerked for a Kentucky Supreme Court Justice and later practiced criminal law with his father (also an attorney) at the state and federal levels.  He has extensive trial experience.  After several years, Trevor met Al Wax, a very established social security disability attorney.  Al invited him to join his firm and take over the practice.  Trevor became a partner in what is now the Smith and Wax Law Firm.

Trevor understands that the work he does can have a profound impact on the lives of his clients.  His firm is “in the trenches” with clients, from the beginning.  Clients will work directly with Trevor and his staff.

Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is for workers.  If you’ve worked enough time, you will have accrued benefits.  It also includes Medicare health insurance.

Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a safety net meant to help people who can’t work and don’t have a work history.  Children and adults can qualify for SSI benefits.  This program comes with Medicaid health insurance.

Trevor also works with the homeless and those with mental disabilities to see if they qualify for SSDI or SSI benefits.  If so, he can handle the application and legal process.
