The SSDI/SSI Process
Most people who apply for SSDI/SSI are initially denied. It is also common to be denied at the reconsideration stage. Daniel B. Scott knows how to review denied claims and determine the reason for the denial. He can help you include the information the Social Security Administration (SSA) requires.
He will also help you with the hearing with an administrative law judge (ALJ). If necessary, he will represent you at the appeals council review. He thoroughly understands the process and will ensure that appeals deadlines are met.
To receive SSDI/SSI, your injuries must prevent you from working for at least a year. You may receive SSDI/SSI benefits for numerous physical and mental health conditions such as:
- Paralysis and spinal cord injuries
- Back injuries
- Amputations/loss of limb
- Head and brain injuries
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression and anxiety disorder
- Heart disease and stroke
- Neurological disorders
Some people are eligible for SSDI/SSI benefits and workers’ compensation benefits. It is important that you work with an attorney who knows how to obtain the maximum benefits from both programs.
