Social Security Disability Attorneys In New Richmond

​Social Security Disability (SSD) Definition

The Social Security Administration (SSA) manages Social Security benefits, including disability, survivors and retirement. Individuals who cannot work due to a physical or mental disability may find relief through the disability section of Social Security. The SSA only offers assistance to those applicants who have long-term or fatal conditions.

There are two types of SSD benefits:

  • Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI)
  • Supplemental Security Income (SSI)

The main difference between the two types of benefits is the individual’s work experience. Social Security Disability Insurance is designated to support disabled individuals with work backgrounds. While SSI is for individuals who are disabled, have a lower income, and haven’t been in the workforce long enough.

It’s important to know that these two programs are separate, even though they are both administered by the SSA. Additionally, in particular situations, individuals could be eligible for both benefits.

You may be eligible for SSD benefits if:

  • You are unable to perform your previous job, due to your disability.
  • Your disability restricts you from adjusting to other jobs at work.
  • You cannot work for 12 months or more.
  • The medical condition is expected to result in death.
  • You meet the specific work experience and age requirements

How To Apply For Social Security Disability

Ways to apply for Social Security Disability:

What Information Do I Need Before Applying For Benefits?

Prior to applying for benefits, you need to collect all information about your disability and employment. The SSA requires you to provide certain documents to prove the existence and severity of your medical condition. As we mentioned above, work experience is a critical factor in qualifying for SSDI, so you must present employment information as well.

Information about you:

  • Your birth date and place of birth
  • Social Security number
  • Your bank routing and account number, if you want benefits directly deposited

Information about your disability or medical condition:

  • Name, address and phone number of your health care provider
  • Contact information for the hospital or clinics you sought treatment at
  • Prescriptions you are taking for the condition and who prescribed them
  • Any medical records, tests, lab results and physician’s notes about your disability

It’s essential that, if you haven’t been seeing a doctor regularly, you schedule a medical appointment. The longer it takes to acquire your medical information, the longer it will take to apply and have your claim processed.

Information about your work:

  • Name and address of your employers for this and last year
  • Amount of income you received this and last year
  • Any employment documents such as W2s, pay stubs and tax returns
  • All workers compensation information, if you have or intend to file for those benefits

List Of Medical Conditions That Qualify For SSDI Benefits

The following is a list of some but not all medical conditions that qualify for Social Security Disability benefits. To see a full list of physical and mental impairments that may be covered, head to the SSA’s website, or contact our experienced lawyers at Nicolet Law Firm. Some of these impairments include:

Even if you have a qualifying condition, you may still be denied disability benefits.

What To Do If Your Claim Is Denied

If you have applied for either SSDI or SSI but were denied, don’t be discouraged. Many first claims are denied, often due to minor technicalities. You have the right to appeal your Social Security Disability case.
