Social Security Disability

Social Security Disability

Often referred to as SSDI, Social Security disability is insurance. The attorneys at Goicoechea Law Offices represent Social Security Disability claimants before the Social Security Administration in Northern Idaho (Sandpoint, Post Falls, Coeur d’Alene, Moscow, Lewiston, and surrounding areas) and Eastern Washington (Clarkston, Pullman, Spokane, and surrounding communities).

Disabled individuals gain access to Social Security disability insurance coverage through payroll taxes. Social Security pays benefits to you, and qualifying family members, if you cannot work because you have a medical condition that is expected to last at least one year or result in death.The Social Security disability insurance program pays benefits to you and your family only if you have worked long enough and paid sufficient Social Security taxes. The amount of your earnings and the duration of your earning is considered to determine if you qualify for Social Security disability benefits. A Social Security attorney can help you determine whether you qualify for Social Security disability benefits. Contact Goicoechea Law Offices today regarding your Social Security disability claim.

If, however, you are not eligible for disability benefits, you may still qualify for Supplemental Security Income, which is addressed below.

Supplemental Security Income

The Supplemental Security Income program pays benefits to disabled adults and minors who have both limited income and limited resources. For most Social Security claimants, the medical disability requirements to qualify for Supplement Security Income are the same under the Social Security disability and the Supplemental Security Income programs. If you are disabled, do not have too many resources, and do not have an earnings history to qualify for Social Security disability benefits, you may still be able to qualify for Supplemental Security Income benefits. The Social Security lawyers at Goicoechea Law Offices can help determine whether you qualify for Supplemental Security Income.
