Did you know that nearly one in five Americans have a disability?
Many of these disabled people suffer from horrific illnesses, physical defects or limitations or mental disorders that make it impossible to work. This is why Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) are so important. They are the backbone to our country’s economy, helping those who need it the most.
To qualify for these benefits, particularly SSDI, people need to show that they can no longer work. To determine eligibility, the Social Security Administration uses a five-step evaluation for people who are applying for SSDI. To qualify for benefits, you will need to show that you can no longer do tasks that you did before and that your medical condition is expected to worsen or prevent you from working for an extended period of time (for at least one year or to result in death).
This is why it is very important to seek out representation if you are applying for benefits or in an appeal, as it can be a very lengthy and confusing process.
Fortunately, the attorneys at our firm are here to help you. Our very own Steve Troutman has been practicing Social Security law with Gayle Troutman since 1998. Both are members of the National Organization of Social Security Claimants’ Representatives (NOSSCR), where they have served in various leadership roles.
