Filing for SSDI benefits can be time-consuming and frustrating, but you may not need an attorney or national firm to help you from the outset.  It’s all about making sure you have the best strategy to win your case.

Not every individual should have to pay the highest fee structure that almost all attorneys or companies charge (up to $6,000)

If you don’t have to pay a fee up to $6,000, then why should you?  There are a variety of tracks to help you secure benefits at a much lower cost than what traditional firms or companies charge.

Not every individual knows the best path to follow which will get the best results

We will help you determine the best path to follow based on a detailed conversation and review of your case.  It’s all about our commitment to partnering with you to reach the best outcome.

Not every attorney or company is focused on helping you get an early award

It’s in your best interest to do everything possible to secure an early award.  Why would you risk having to go to a hearing if you don’t have to? It’s about following the best strategy and path with our guidance.

The SSDI Process

If you have enough work credits to qualify for disability benefits, the Social
Security Administration (SSA) uses a step-by-step process involving five questions. They are:

1. Are you working?
If you are working in 2020 and your earnings average more than $1,260 a month, you generally cannot be considered disabled. If you are not working, SSA will send your application to the Disability Determination Services (DDS) office that will make the decision about whether you can work on a sustained basis based on your medical condition(s).
2. Is your condition "severe"?

Your condition must significantly limit your ability to do basic work such as lifting, standing, walking, sitting, and remembering – for at least 12 months. If it does not, SSA will find that you are not disabled.  If your condition does interfere with basic work-related activities, SSA moves on to Step 3.

3. Is your condition found in the list of disabling conditions?

For each of the major body systems, SSA maintains a list of medical conditions that we consider so severe that it prevents a person from completing a substantial gainful activity. If your condition(s) is not on the list, SSA has to decide if it is as severe as a medical condition that is on the list. If it is, SSA will find that you are disabled. If it is not, SSA then moves to Step 4.

4. Can you do the work you did previously?

At this step, SSA decides if your medical condition(s) prevent you from performing any of your past work. It is doesn’t, SSA will conclude you don’t have a qualifying disability. If it does, SSA proceeds to Step 5.

5. Can you do any other type of work?

If you can’t do the work you did in the past, SSA looks to see if there is other work you could do despite your condition(s). SSA considers your medical condition(s) and your age, education, past work experience, and any transferable skills you may have. If you can’t do other work, SSA will decide you are disabled. If you can do other work, SSA will decide that you don’t have a qualifying disability and your claim will be denied.
