At Hansen Dirani & Associates Law Offices, our experienced Oklahoma disability attorneys are prepared to help you win your disability claim. While you can apply for SSD or SSI benefits on your own, it's wise to hire an attorney who has a deep understanding of the Social Security Administration's rules and regulations. Don't hesitate to contact us for a free consultation.
You or someone you love can become disabled through any number of ways. You may be injured in a car accident, while at work or at home, or you may have been born with a disabling condition. Some disabilities come about through illness during the course of a lifetime.
No matter how your disability came about, you can take steps to protect yourself and your family financially. The government offers two programs that provide assistance to people with disabilities: Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI).
To qualify for SSDI, you generally must have worked for five out of the last 10 years and have a physical or mental condition that prevents you from engaging in any "substantial gainful activity." Furthermore, you must prove to the Social Security Administration that your condition is expected to last at least a year or result in death.
SSI generally is available to those with limited income and resources and who are disabled, blind, or 65 years old or older.
Both programs, administered through the Social Security Administration, are designed to help people with disabilities. These programs differ from other types of financial assistance, such as workers' compensation. The government can determine if you are eligible and meet its definition of disability.
The Social Security Administration is a massive bureaucracy with complicated rules and regulations. It's not unusual for someone filing a claim to quickly get frustrated and want to give up. The administration initially denies most claims. Don't be discouraged. Don't give up! Call or email Hansen Dirani & Associates Law Offices today for your free consultation. Let our experienced Social Security disability attorneys handle your claim for you. We have years of experience helping people get the results they need and deserve.
