Social Security Disability (SSDI) Attorney Serving Louisville, Central and Western Kentucky and Southern Indiana
Have you suffered from a debilitating mental illness or physical injury or disability? You may be eligible to receive disability benefits under the Social Security Administration’s “Social Security Disability Insurance” or SSDI program. At the Smith & Wax Law Office we can help you to understand the potential benefits you might be entitled to, and represent you through the process to ensure that you have the best opportunity to have your SSDI claim approved.
Most SSDI Claims are Denied – What Should You Do If Your SSDI Claim is Denied?
In order to qualify for Social Security disability benefits you must meet several requirements, and effectively document the underlying medical conditions. Some of the requirements include:
• You are 18 Years of Age or Older
• Resident of the United States of America
• An Established Period of Work Where Social Security Taxes Were Paid
• Your Illness or Injury has Prevented You from Working for Longer than One Calendar Year
Kentucky and Indiana Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a benefit through Social Security, available to people who are disabled and who have little or no real income. The Social Security Disability system considers these people to be “indigent” and provides income assistance benefits. There are guidelines that establish eligibility for SSI which require that you have no money coming into the household, except child support and some types of program income (such as Temporary Assistance for Needy Families – TANF). There is a limit on the types of assets you can have, and benefits can be reduced if you are living with someone who is paying for your housing or rent.
In many cases, these benefits apply to those who have experienced a significant and permanent injury, mental illness, or for those who have simply no other source of help. At the Smith and Wax Law Office we understand that you are struggling, and that you need the federal assistance and benefits to which you are entitled. We will work with you to help establish a Supplemental Security Income claim, and to work for its approval.
