Chicago Social Security Disability Insurance Lawyer

Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is a federal income tax funded insurance for people whose disability prohibits them from working. While many disabilities that qualify for SSDI are sustained at work, SSDI claims are different than workers’ compensation claims in that they can only be filed if a disability has or is expected to last longer than 12 months. However, SSDI claims are similar to workers’ comp claims in that without an experienced attorney, you may never see any of the benefits you need.

Harvey Walner and his legal team understand how difficult it can be to file for and collect benefits. We are here to help you every step of the way and to see that you are provided the full benefits you deserve in the shortest time possible. If you are looking for an experienced Chicago Social Security Disability Insurance lawyer, please contact Harvey L. Walner & Associates, Ltd. or call 312-800-0000 today.

Qualifying for Social Security Disability Insurance

To qualify for SSDI you must be under retirement age and have worked at a job in which Social Security taxes were taken. In addition, you must meet the Social Security Administration’s (SSA) definition of “disabled” which includes any medical condition that prohibits working in the same or similar capacity as you have in the past.

While the SSA’s definition of disability seems fairly cut and dry, obtaining SSDI is exceedingly complex – so complex that a majority of claims are initially denied. Unfortunately, denials require a long and even more complex appeals process, which is best avoided whenever possible.
