Social Security Disability (SSD) is a program managed by the Social Security Administration (SSA) that provides financial benefits for individuals who cannot work or perform any "substantial gainful activity" for at least 12 months or have a medical condition that is expected to result in death. At Disability Claim Consultants, we help people in Omaha, Nebraska, and the surrounding areas with the SSD application and appeals process. Our experienced team has helped thousands of people obtain benefits since 1988, and we have the expertise, diligence and successful track record that you can trust.
Many people try to navigate the process on their own first, only to find that the SSA seems more interested in getting people to go away than helping them get the benefits they need. We provide caring, yet aggressive advocacy to obtain the benefits you deserve.
You can think of SSD benefits as a type of insurance program - those who have paid into the system while employed have "insured status," meaning they can apply for benefits if they later become disabled. In fact, the program is sometimes referred to as Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). To apply for benefits, individuals must:
We will evaluate your claim and advise you on whether you meet the eligibility requirements for SSD. We can also assist you with related issues such as how to properly document chronic pain and seek benefits for family members that may be available.
Many people confuse SSD benefits with Supplemental Security Income (SSI). Both programs help people who require financial assistance because they cannot work on account of their disabling condition, but SSI is based on need, not your work history. We will help you understand which program best suits your unique circumstances.
You don't need a lawyer to apply for SSD benefits. Our consultants are accredited members of National Organization of Social Security Claimants' Representatives (NOSSCR), and unlike many attorneys' offices, we focus our practice exclusively on the representation of adults and children with disabilities and their entitlement to Social Security disability benefits. We will personally guide you throughout the entire SSD process.
