Social Security Disability

The primary source of dependable income for many people who have worked in the past and then suffered a disabling injury or illness is Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). The Social Security Administration (SSA) reviews claims for disability benefits based on a range of factors associated with the claimant's work history and medical condition.

Unfortunately, many people with valid long-term and permanent impairments that prevent them from working face a very tough challenge getting their SSDI claims approved. Working with an Anderson Social Security Disability attorney who understands the criteria used, the system and what action to take if your claim is denied could make all the difference for you.
