Who Qualifies For SSDI Benefits?
To qualify for SSDI benefits, you must prove you have a disabling physical or mental impairment such as:
- Back and neck injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Knee, shoulder and joint injuries
- Carpel tunnel syndrome
- Chronic pain
- Heart, pulmonary and breathing disorders
- Qualifying mental conditions such as depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder
- Lupus or other chronic illnesses
- Loss or severe reduction in eyesight
- HIV or AIDS
- Fibromyalgia or arthritis
SSDI benefits are available to individuals with qualifying medical conditions who have been part of the workforce for approximately five of the past 10 years. Unfortunately, individuals with valid claims are often denied the first time they apply. Our law firm’s Social Security Disability lawyers, Carl Kreibich and Eric Gritz, provide experienced legal counsel to guide clients through the appeals process.
Helping Clients Navigate The Appeals Process
If the Social Security Administration has denied your claim for SSDI benefits, unfortunately you are not alone. Most requests are denied the first time. A highly skilled Social Security Disability lawyer will be invaluable to helping you navigate the appeals process. At Bender & Gritz, we have advocated for many clients in situations similar to yours. We are adept at handling appeals before administrative law judges (ALJ). We know how to effectively incorporate medical testimony illustrating the extent of your medical condition. Our law firm also knows how to develop strong appeals based on what administrative law judges are looking to see.
If the ALJ’s decision proves to be unfavorable, our work is not over. We will request that the Social Security Appeals Council review the legitimacy of your SSDI claim. We understand this is likely an emotionally draining time for you and your family. The last thing you need is to be left with any surprises. We want you to know that obtaining the benefits you need can take some time. But you can feel confident knowing we will take every measure possible to improve your chances of securing the benefits you need.
