Facing Disability? Benefits Can Help

Being disabled and unable to work and provide for your family can be emotionally and financially devastating. A good Social Security disability attorney can help you navigate through the disability regulations and mandates to get the benefits you deserve. Applying for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) can be a lifesaver – and it can be complicated.

How A Lawyer Can Help

At O'Donnell, Weiss & Mattei, P.C., we know that many are denied benefits even though they are deserving. To receive benefits, you must provide proof that you are unable to work due to a medical condition that will last for at least one year or could result in death. Many physical impairments can qualify for SSDI or SSI Benefits, but failure to meet deadlines or specific criteria can seriously delay the process and put you and your family at financial risk.

When you come in to see us bring all documents previously filed with the Social Security Administration and all notices. Be prepared to provide:

  • A complete work history
  • A list of all treating physicians
  • A list of all medicines being taken
  • Full medical history
  • All Social Security documents and notices
