Cleveland Social Security Disability Attorneys

Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) pays benefits to you and certain family members if you qualify for "insured" status, meaning you worked long enough (five of the past 10 years) and paid Social Security taxes.

In practice, insured status is based on a calculation of lifetime earnings. Unlike Social Security Supplemental income (SSI), there aren't any asset or income requirements for SSD that can disqualify claimants.

It's important to note that a significant majority of claims are initially denied. This rejection often leaves claimants unsure of how to proceed and questioning whether or not they will be able to obtain benefits. The initial denial often results from unprepared claimants failing to provide information to support their claim applications. If no further action is taken to pursue an appeal by supplementing the evidence file, a claim will continue to be denied.
