Can I Get Disability Benefits?

The Social Security Administration (SSA) uses a five-step sequential evaluation to determine if a person has a disability and qualifies for benefits. This five-step evaluation can become rather complicated, particularly in “close calls.”

Due to the personal nature of disability law, our lawyers cannot provide an exhaustive description of all the relevant issues. We also want you to know certain things when you apply for disability benefits.

To discuss the unique details of your case, call (918) 265-1404 or contact us online today.

What Are the Differences Between Disability Insurance Benefits & SSI?

The Social Security Act provides for two different types of benefits: Disability Insurance Benefits (DIB) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI).

While DIB (also known as Social Security Disability Insurance, or SSDI) and SSI have some similarities, they also have some very significant differences. This section of our site briefly describes the differences in these two types of benefits.
