The Disability Claims Process
The claims process for obtaining Social Security Disability and Supplemental Security Income benefits is complicated. Most initial claims are denied, and an experienced attorney is often necessary to obtain a claim approval.
Social Security Disability
The Social Security Disability (SSD) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) programs can provide the income and medical coverage you need to live a decent life. These essential programs can mean the difference between a comfortable life or a life of poverty and hardship.
Supplemental Security Income
Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a program developed to provide benefits for people with limited work histories who cannot work because of disability or illness.
What Is A Disabling Condition?
Qualifying for benefits does not come automatically. The fact that your doctor or counselor thinks you are disabled is not enough. You must present evidence that your condition prevents you from working.
Pain, Fatigue & Hard-To-Measure Symptoms
Fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, multiple sclerosis, severe back pain and other hard to measure symptoms may qualify the sufferer for Social Security Disability (SSD) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits.

At Chihak + Chihak, we are often asked by people with disabilities if they should try to work.
