Social Security Disability

slide ss benefitsThe process of obtaining Social Security benefits can be difficult and frustrating on your own. Whether you have recently become disabled or have been denied benefits, we can help. We understand obtaining your Social Security benefits can make the difference between struggling financially or having the funds and medical care you need to survive.

Social Security has two major programs: Social Security Disability Insurance Benefits (DIB) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI). These programs are designed to assist an individual who has become physically or mentally unable to work. Social Security Disability Insurance, or DIB, is for the individual who has worked and paid Federal Insurance Contribution Act (FICA) taxes. The FICA taxes you pay allow you to earn credits with the Social Security Administration. The amount of time you have worked, along with the number of credits earned, determines if you will qualify for DIB.

The other major program the Social Security Administration offers is Supplemental Security Income (SSI). The SSI program is in place for adults and children who qualify based on income. The amount of SSI payments is based on financial needs; you must fall under certain income and resource limits in order to qualify for this program.
