    An Overview of Social Security and Disability Law

    Social security and disability law encompasses legal provisions designed to provide financial assistance and support to individuals who are unable to work due to disability or retirement. The Social Security Administration (SSA) administers these programs, which include Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI).

    SSDI provides benefits to individuals who have worked and paid into the Social Security system but are no longer able to work due to a qualifying disability. Eligibility for SSDI benefits is based on both work history and medical eligibility criteria.

    SSI, on the other hand, is a needs-based program that provides financial assistance to disabled individuals with limited income and resources, regardless of their work history. Eligibility for SSI benefits is determined based on financial need and disability status.

    Navigating the application process for social security and disability benefits can be complex and challenging. It often involves gathering medical evidence, completing detailed forms, and attending hearings before administrative-law judges.

    Legal practitioners specializing in social security and disability law play a crucial role in assisting individuals with disabilities in obtaining the benefits they are entitled to under the law. They provide guidance and representation throughout the application and appeals process, ensuring that their clients' rights are protected.
