Apply for Social Security Disability

What is SSDI?

Social Security Disability Insurance or SSDI is a large Federal Assistance Program which helps provide financial assistance to those individuals with long term disabilities. Specific medical criteria outlined by the Social Security Administration (SSA) is required to receive benefits from SSA. Social Security Disability Insurance offers benefits to disabled people who have worked 5 out of the last 10 years and therefore insured.

After filing for Social Security Disability benefits, SSA will decide whether you meet its definition of disability. Disability, according to SSA, is defined as an individual who is unable to work as they did before, nor can they adjust their work because of medically proven condition(s), and their disability will last or has lasted at least twelve months. The Social Security Administration requires medical records of your condition and, if necessary, will seek other information about employment history, workers' compensation, insurance, savings and investments. These necessary documents are the reason why it is so important to have the help of a Social Security disability representative. Our network of representatives will aquire all necessary documents for you.

Recently Diagnosed?

If you have been recently diagnosed by a medical professional with Adrenal Cancer, Anaplastic Adrenal Cancer, Bladder Cancer, Bone Cancer, Breast Cancer, Esophageal Cancer, Gallbladder Cancer, Inflammatory Breast Cancer, Kidney Cancer, Large Intestine Cancer, Liver Cancer, Ovarian Cancer, Pancreatic Cancer, Small Cell Lung Cancer, or Thyroid Cancer, we may be able to get your benefits to you even faster. Be sure to have medical evidence of this diagnosis and indicate this on the application. These, along with others, are part of Social Security's CAL or Compassionate Allowance List and are treated differently from an ordinary claim.

Compassionate Allowance List

What is a Compassionate Allowance List (CAL) and why should I care?

Social Security Disability handles over 3 million disability applications per year. Because of this, they created what is called a compassionate allowance list or CAL. Think of this list as fast-track or move-to-the-front-of-the-line type of disability.
