When a medical condition or physical injury prevents you from working, it can be financially devastating to your family. You could have a rightful claim to disability benefits through the Social Security Administration, but it can be frustratingly difficult to actually obtain this type of financial support. It is you versus the SSA — but you do not have to fight alone.
Michael A. Joanow of Joanow Legal Group has years of experience navigating Pennsylvania applicants through the complex and confusing steps of the disability claims process. He knows how to build a strong initial claim, as well as continue the fight for benefits after a denied claim through a reconsideration or appeal.
Did you know there are two types of Social Security benefits? And you may be eligible for both.
Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is only available for workers who meet certain requirements. Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is available for anyone who falls below a certain income threshold. You may be eligible to receive either benefit, or perhaps both. Contact our office to discuss your options.
If you cannot work, you will find great benefit in having experienced guidance as you seek the financial help you deserve. Joanow Legal Group can help you secure SSDI, SSI or both forms of benefits.
