Social Security Disability

The government offers monthly income benefits and health care benefits to disabled individuals through Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI). However, the process for successfully obtaining benefits can be difficult.

The Process Of Obtaining Benefits

The Social Security Administration typically denies applications for benefits at least once before finally approving them. Therefore, it is important to be patient and have confidence in an experienced attorney — such as our Social Security lawyer, Jarvis T. Harris. Mr. Harris will provide experienced and personal representation from the initial filing for benefits through the various stages of disability appeals.

The following is a summary of the typical application process:

  • Phase 1
    • File the Social Security claim.
    • Receive an initial denial of benefits.
  • Phase 2
    • File a request for reconsideration.
    • Receive a second denial of benefits.
  • Phase 3
    • Request a disability hearing.
    • Testify before a judge regarding the need for benefits and why the claim should be approved.
  • Phase 4
    • If benefits are not approved after the hearing, we will file a notice of appeal and represent the client through the appellate process.
