Since millions of Americans apply for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) each year, the chances of a claim being denied are high. And the paperwork is overwhelming to say the least. So, what do you do to ensure you get the benefits you need to survive physically and financially after becoming disabled? Hiring an attorney who knows social security law is the first step. At Saffren & Weinberg, our attorneys will help you understand the application process and fight for your benefits, including lost wages and medical expenses.
What is the Difference Between SSDI and SSI?
Although both are government programs and managed by the Social Security Administration, there are differences between the two. SSDI is available to those who have a work history. They have paid into the social security fund (FICA Social Security taxes). They must be between the ages of 18 and 65 to receive benefits and can be eligible for Medicaid after two years of receiving SSDI benefits. A disabled person’s spouse and children may receive partial benefits (auxiliary benefits).
For those who have little or no work history and are low-income, they are eligible for SSI. SSI is a “need-based” program and is funded by general taxes. A person must have less than $2,000 in assets ($3,000 for a couple). A disabled person who is eligible for SSI can also receive Medicaid benefits. Also, a person age 65 can receive SSI who is not disabled but meets the financial criteria.
Take Action Against Denied SSDI Claims and Appeal
When your disability claim has been denied, you should appeal. Surprisingly, most claimants don’t! Claimants give up too quickly or file the appeal too late. You have 60 days from the date of the denial letter to file an appeal. Also, you don’t have file a new claim.
When your claim is denied, you will go to a hearing with an administrative law judge. At this point, it is in your best interest to hire an SSDI attorney, who has been to many hearings. And you want an attorney to be your advocate, not a “claim representative” from a law firm. The attorneys at Saffren & Weinberg will:
- ensure that your case has all the relevant documents. We have the experience to know what the judge will be looking for in your claim.
- locate any missing documents, such as medical records and physician statements.
- apply social security administration regulations to your case.
Marc Weinberg Helps People Get the Social Security Benefits They Deserve
Filling out the paperwork for a social security disability insurance (SSDI) claim can be frustrating. What’s even more frustrating is when the claim is denied. What happened? You filled out the form completely. You included your (or a loved one’s) medical records and you have proven that you cannot be gainfully employed due to your medical condition. You want to give up. But Marc Weinberg is here to help you. At Saffren & Weinberg, our lawyers know social security law. We will help you get the social security appeal process.
Reasons Why an SSDI Claim Gets Denied
It’s important to note that you do have resources and options. In going back over your application, did you:
- include all of your medical treatments? The physicians (including physical therapists and physician assistants) contact information? Dates of treatments?
- provide ample medical evidence? Take a look at your medical records. Are they detailed? Did you talk to your physician about your limitations? It is always recommended to have a healthy dialog with your treating physician with each visit.
- fill out the paperwork completely?
