Are you disabled and unable to work? In addition to the physical or mental problems you are experiencing as a result of your disability, you and your family are also experiencing severe financial hardship and stress. If you are denied Social Security Disability (SSD) or Supplementary Security Income (SSI) benefits, Stern Law can help you go after the back benefits and monthly checks that your claim may entitle you.
Social Security provides several types of benefits to individuals who are physically or mentally unable to work and are in need of income, including Social Security Disability (SSD) and Supplementary Security Income (SSI).
If you are under the age of 65 and it appears that you will be unable to work for a year or more due to a variety of physical handicaps, chronic illnesses or mental disorders, then you may be eligible to receive Social Security Disability benefits (SSD). You must meet requirements based on your work history and your earnings to qualify for benefits. Stern Law can help you file the appropriate forms for your application or appeal and answer any questions that you may have. If you are denied, you must file an appeal within 60 days from the date your SSD or SSI claim is denied or you will have to file a new application, which may cause you to lose back benefits.
If you are 65 years or younger, legally blind or disabled and you do not have a lot of income, then you may be eligible to receive Supplementary Security Income benefits (SSI). You must meet requirements based on your disability, your income level and your assets to quality for benefits. Our Social Security lawyers and legal assistants can help you file the appropriate forms for your application or appeal and answer any questions that you may have. You must also file this appeal within 60 days from the date your SSI claim is denied or you will have to file a new application, which may cause you to lose back benefits.
Stern Law helps individuals obtain Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security  Income (SSI) benefits. Under these Social Security  programs, individuals receive monthly checks and medical benefits. If you are  not working because of an illness, an injury or emotional problems, you may be  eligible to receive SSDI or SSI benefits. Stern Law can aid in your appeal if  you have been denied benefits.
There are important distinctions between the SSDI and SSI programs:
  • Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) provides benefits to disabled people (including certain disabled dependents) who have paid into the Social Security trust fund through Federal Insurance Contributions Act (FICA) taxes.
  • Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a needs-based providing financial aid to disabled people who meet low-income guidelines. SSI program benefits are available to the disabled regardless of their employment history.
According to the Social Security Act, to qualify for disability payments  (either SSDI or SSI) you must prove that you cannot do any work for which you  are suited due to a medical condition that is expected to last for a minimum of  a year, or is terminal. While an estimated 6.5 million people received Social  Security benefits last year, many first time applicants were denied and others  had their benefits terminated. Insufficient medical proof of a disabling  physical or mental impairment is often to blame for a negative outcome.
