Social Security Disability Benefits Were Created to Help You

Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits were created for people like you; people who have reached a point where they are unable to work due to a disability. Surprisingly, getting these benefits is no easy task. There is a maze of bureaucracy that needs to be navigated. Jim McKown and our dedicated staff have extensive experience navigating that maze. We help people like you get the benefits that were created specifically for people in situations like yours. Contact SSD lawyer Jim McKown to learn how he can help you secure the benefits you are entitled to.

Are You Eligible for SSD Benefits?

To be eligible for Social Security benefits, you must be disabled. To be eligible for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits specifically, there is another factor used to determine eligibility: Did you pay into the system?

SSD works in much the same way that private disability insurance works in that you have to pay for it. In order to be eligible, you must have worked and paid into the system for the majority of the months preceding the disability. The amount you get is based on the amount you paid, and that is not something that lawyers or judges can change.

If you are not eligible for SSD, that doesn't mean the doors are closed. You may be eligible for Supplemental Security Income instead.

SSD Is Not Based On Need

One of the most frustrating things about SSD is that it is not based on need. You get it based solely on whether or not you are disabled. It does not matter whether you have thousands of dollars in the bank or you are struggling to pay for your next meal. No matter what your situation is, you can count on us to help you get the benefits you need.
