Why Hire an Attorney for Your SSDI Application?

At the Ricci Law Firm, P.A., our team has 60 years of combined experience and a board certified Social Security Disability specialist. We put this experience and our knowledge of SSD law to work in securing and maximizing your benefits.

Some of the advantages of choosing our attorneys include:

  • We ensure all the right information is included in your application.
  • We know many of the common application mistakes that can result in denial of your claim.
  • We work to try to prevent a denial in the first place.
  • We can determine if you should instead apply for Supplemental Security Income (SSI), which provides benefits for people who are not eligible for SSD.

It seems so simple to complete the necessary paperwork on your own and wait to hear back that your disability benefits are approved. However, if your SSD application does not include all the necessary information that the Social Security Administration needs to approve your claim—including thorough documentation of your disabling condition—you will be denied SSD benefits. While you can appeal SSD benefit denial, it is much easier and more cost-effective to hire an experienced lawyer who can help you ensure your application is documented as accurately and thoroughly as possible, enhancing your chances for approval of your SSD benefits the first time around.

The SSDI Application Process

SSD and SSI claims are frequently denied simply because there was not enough medical information documenting the disability. When you work with our law firm, you can have confidence and peace of mind knowing that your application is as thorough as possible. Our seasoned lawyers communicate with your doctors when necessary to ensure the information they provide thoroughly documents your medical condition to the fullest extent possible. If your SSD claim is then denied, we will already be working on your case and will be better equipped to build your SSD appeal.

To prepare the strongest, most complete application for disability benefits, it is important for you to share with us any medical conditions or disabilities you have and to bring a list of the doctors you are seeing, any medications you are taking and your work history. This enables us to provide an honest assessment of whether we believe you will be eligible for benefits. This information will also be valuable for us to begin preparing your application for Social Security Disability benefits.

If you do not qualify for SSD due to insufficient work history, we will also need financial and asset information to determine if you may be eligible for Supplemental Security Income instead. Like SSD, SSI provides monthly income benefits to eligible disabled individuals. The main difference is that applicants must also meet asset and income requirements.
