SSD Benefits And SSI Disability Attorneys

If a disability is keeping you from working, you may be eligible to obtain Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits or Supplemental Security Income (SSI). Successfully gaining eligibility, however, is a complex process and most initial applications are denied. By working with an experienced disability attorney, you can give yourself the best possible chance of obtaining a successful outcome.

At Thiry & Caddell LLP , our attorneys handle SSD and SSI claims for clients in Mobile and throughout Alabama. We have a proven record of success helping clients obtain the disability benefits they need and deserve.

SSD And SSI

In order to qualify for SSD:

  • You must have a qualifying physical or mental health impairment. Common physical impairments include heart disease, cancer, COPD, diabetes and musculoskeletal conditions. Mental health impairments include depression and anxiety disorders.
  • Your impairment must have lasted at least 12 months or is expected to last at least 12 months or be expected to result in death.
  • You must have worked enough to gain adequate credits.

SSI is a need-based program and suited for those who have not worked enough to qualify for SSD. Both SSD and SSI require a rigorous application process. Our attorneys can represent you in all aspects of your claim, including your initial application and appeal of a denial.

Beware Of Nonattorney Services

If you are seeking help for an SSD or SSI claim, you may have encountered ads for nonattorney "advocate" services. We urge you to exercise caution before hiring such a service. Social Security disability law is complex, and a nonattorney can make mistakes and oversights that can put your claim in jeopardy. If you are serious about obtaining SSD or SSI benefits, enlist the services of an accomplished disability attorney.
