New York Social Security Disability Lawyers

Social Security Disability Insurance, or SSDI, is a Federal income program for adults that have worked in the past, but are now unable to due to a disability. 

8.5 million people collect SSDI benefits in the US, according to the Social Security Administration (SSA). The disabled worker payments are also collected by family members, including 117,000 spouses and 1.5 million children. 

If you or a loved one cannot gain employment due to a new or recent disability, the personal injury lawyers at Sobo & Sobo can help you get approved for SSDI benefits. While getting approved is notoriously difficult, having an experienced SSDI lawyer representing you can boost your chance of approval, speed up the legal process, and maximize your financial benefits.

Money Damages

SSDI Benefits

Approved applicants for SSDI benefits and their families receive regular monthly paychecks from the SSA. These can be deposited straight into bank accounts, or through SSA Direct Express Cards.

How Much Does SSDI Pay?

The amount that SSDI applicants receive each month is determined by the lifetime average of earnings that were covered by Social Security. SSDI benefits are only given to the disabled and their families if they are “insured,” which in this case means that an applicant has worked long enough and paid taxes Social Security taxes.

Do You Qualify for SSDI?

There are SSA standards in place to ensure that SSDI benefits are not taken advantage of by people who are not disabled. These requirements are meant to protect the financial security of those who need it most, but they can also make the approval process more difficult for the truly-disabled. The SSA often requires extensive proof of the type and severity of disability, as well as proof of past work history before one can be approved.

The SSA considers one “disabled” if:

  • You cannot work due to a medical condition;
  • You cannot do work that you did before your disability;
  • The SSA determines that adjusting to other types of work is impossible due to medical conditions; and
  • Your disability has lasted or is expected to last for at least one year, or result in your death

Hiring an SSDI Attorney

Of course, anyone who feels that they are eligible to apply for disability benefits are welcome to without any legal assistance. However, many of those that feel they match the SSA’s description of disabled wind up getting rejected without proper legal representation, resulting in wasted time, money and stress. 

The SSDI application process alone is known to be lengthy and complex—especially if an applicant has no prior experience with applying for Social Security benefits. Having the proper documents in place before applying is essential to proving your eligibility to the SSA, as well as maximizing your monthly benefits, and speeding up the legal process. 

It is recommended that you contact an experienced SSDI attorney to make sure you have everything in order. And with an expert legal team backing your application, disputes and other delays to your application can be managed quickly and easily.
