Social Security Disability Lawyers

Whether due to a sudden injury, debilitating illness or chronic condition, an inability to work almost always creates a pressing need for income from some other source. For many people in these circumstances, the primary source of financial support is Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). The Social Security Administration (SSA) is the federal agency responsible for evaluating disability claims and distributing benefit payments to people who meet established, detailed criteria. While this government program helps millions of Americans and their families, it can be difficult to go through the process and gain approval.
