Helping You Receive The Disability Benefits You Deserve
If you have suffered an injury or developed a medical condition that limits your ability to work, receiving workers’ compensation benefits may not be your only financial option. Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) are government programs that provide cash benefits to disabled people who are unable to work full time.
Even if you believe you have a strong claim for benefits, navigating the application process can be overwhelming and time-consuming. In Granite City, our seasoned attorneys at Callis Papa & Szewczyk, PC, know how to file claims and challenge rejected claims. We are eager to help you secure the benefits you deserve as quickly as possible.
What You Need To Know About SSDI
Disabled workers can apply for SSDI benefits, which accumulate over time through paycheck deductions. If your disability or condition limits your ability to work, you may apply for SSDI benefits and get financial assistance from the funds that have been set aside over the course of your career.
Qualifying For SSI
The SSI program gives cash benefits to individuals who cannot draw from SSDI benefits because they have not earned enough income to pay into this system. Taxes fund the SSI benefits. Children and adults with disabilities and adults 65 years and older may qualify for these benefits.
Experience Matters When Filing Claims And Appealing Decisions
It can be a struggle to apply for benefits if you do not know which documents you need to submit or when you need to submit them. Failing to provide accurate information is one of the most common reasons disability benefits are denied.
Working with a knowledgeable lawyer can prevent this error from occurring. Our attorneys have led countless Illinois employees through the SSDI and SSI application process, so you can rely on us to handle your benefits matter efficiently and effectively.
