Understanding the SSI and SSDI Application Process
The process for pursuing Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) payments or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits is complicated. The initial applications are confusing, and one simple mistake can result in a denial. Although a majority of original claims are denied, applicants have several levels of appeals available to help them achieve the financial assistance they need.
Guiding You Through the Complex Maze of Disability Benefits
While we can provide general instruction on how to file an initial disability claim, at the Law Office of Ellene Welsh, we focus our practice on filing appeals on behalf of clients whose claims have already been denied initially. We have in-depth understanding of the complex appeals process and have worked with the Social Security Administration for more than a decade. Call our offices in Douglasville or Columbus, Georgia, at 770-884-1879 or 866-959-2946 for a free initial consultation.
How to Apply for Social Security Disability Insurance or Supplemental Security Income
You can apply for short-term or long-term benefits without a lawyer at your local Social Security Administration office. If your claim is denied, and most of them typically are, that is when you need the assistance of a knowledgeable Douglasville SSDI/SSI process attorney.
Your legal representative will:
- Assess your situation
- Ensure you have a qualifying physical or mental disability
- Oversee your medical treatment
- Gather all necessary documentation, including medical records, work history and educational background information
- Persuasively present your case
As a local law firm, we have built strong working relationships with a network of doctors, clinics and other health care providers. If your disability demands specific medical treatment, we are able to advise you regarding available resources, including reduced-cost options.
