Social Security Disability Insurance

Print this page

Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is designed to provide financial assistance for people that have suffered injuries so grave that they can no longer function in a full capacity.  This financial assistance takes several forms, such as additional income, support services, or supplemental medical care.  It is extremely difficult to get SSDI; the beuraucracy that oversees the process is incredibly cumbersome and complicated, with many layers of overlapping agents and resources.  As such, experts speculate that up to 60% of all claimants are denied benefits the first time they petition.

Social Security oversees four independent arms of aid:

  • SSDI: provides aid to individuals and some family members
  • Supplemental Security Income (SSI): gives aid based on financial requirements
  • Disabled Widows and Widowers Benefits (DWB): oversees aid given to spouses
  • Disabled Adult Child benefits (DAC):  provides benefits to handicapped adults


The type and amount of aid depends greatly on which category an individual falls into, and their specific condition.

People denied claims should not lose heart because there are options to get the help they need.  The best option is to engage a lawyer that understands the complex bureaucracy of the SSDI system to better streamline a case where even the minutest detail out of place can spell disaster.  Social Security attorneys are extremely helpful because they can sometimes get retroactive compensation should the appeal reverse the initial decision.

If you have been denied your claim for Social Security assistance you must contact an attorney immediately.  Every day that passes without your benefits is a day that you must needlessly suffer.  Our dedicated and professional Social Security attorneys are ready to help you face the bureaucracy that has prevented you from living the life you could.  Contact us today.
