If you or a loved one suffers from a disability and can’t work, the government offers SSDI and SSI benefits to supplement or replace income.

The Law Offices of Daniel S. Draper has highly trained social security disability attorneys on staff ready to help with your case.

Understanding Applications for SSDI and SSI Benefits
SSDI (Social Security Disability Insurance) and SSI (Supplementary Security Income) are the two main programs available for disabled citizens in Milwaukee who can no longer work. SSDI benefits are earned benefits that you, a spouse or disabled parent may qualify for. The benefits available are based on total hours previously worked and the amount of earnings paid into social security over your career.
SSI benefits, on the other hand, are based on financial need rather than work experience. Those most eligible for SSI are blind, disabled or 65 and older with little to no income or monetary resources. Under SSI, the spouses or dependent children of applicants are not eligible to receive any provisions under this program.
Two thirds of applicants to Social Security benefits are denied the first time. Even then, benefits can still be terminated after they have been approved. It can be difficult to know what you need or how to apply without the help of a social security disability lawyer. An experienced attorney like those at The Law Offices of Daniel S. Draper can sort through your assets, decide which program you’re best suited for and resubmit your claim to the SS to improve your chances of approval during the appeals process.
