Social Security Disability
Burke Barclay is a registered attorney representative with the Social Security Administration, representing those with
disability claims throughout the United States.
As a potential client, you should know that no attorney fees are paid to us unless we win your disability benefits case. If we don't win, you owe us nothing.
Therefore, we recognize that sometimes you can't do it on your own. If you've tried to submit to the Social Security Administration for disability benefits and you've been denied, chances are you may be denied again.
However, with the right representation, you may be able to increase your odds at receiving those benefits.
That's where we can help. Send us your medical records, and other information we may ask you to submit. Again, no need to worry, we will handle your case personally.
While we cannot promise results, we can promise you will receive zealous representation and your issues will be heard and you will be given an excellent chance at winning your case.
One receives not only retirement benefits with earned work credits but also disability benefits as well. For each year worked and dependent upon the age of the Claimant, he or she will or will not be able to qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits.
There are also other issues in which Claimants must be aware. Many times people stop working because of their condition(s) and do not pursue disability benefits until it is too late. If a person has not worked, trypically for five years, then their disability benefits will expire. This is also why it is so important that if a person cannot work due to a severe condition, he or she must at least consult a Social Security disability attorney to evaluate the case.
For those who have worked and earned a sufficient amount of work credits and have not lost their disability benefits, then SSDI will be awarded if he or she has a severe impairment that is likely to keep them from working for 12 months or more and there is not other work the Claimant would be able to perform.
SSI (Supplemental Security Income) benefits are similar to SSDI benefits, but vary in their financial requirements. For those who have not worked long enough to qualify for SSDI benefits or who may have lost their earned work credits, SSI benefits may be awarded.
Therefore, a person who has a family income and non-exempt assets of less than a certain amount can qualify to receive these benefits.
However, in regards to the medical condition requirements, the same standard will always apply. A person must have a severe medically determined condition that is likely to last for 12 months or more.
SSI beneifts may be extremely important for those who, because of their medical condition, have been devastated financially. Further, the Medicaid benefits associated with SSI may help a person finally be able to seek proper medical assistance for their condition. Thus, while the financial benefits are significantly less, the medical beneifts may be what the person needs more than anything else.
