Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI or Title 2) provides benefits for people who cannot substantially work because of a medical condition, either physical or mental, that is expected to last at least one year or result in death. Those who do not qualify for these benefits may qualify for Supplemental Security Income, or SSI.

While there are numerous injuries, ailments and disabilities that may qualify you or a loved one for SSD or SSI benefits, some common issues we help our clients address include:

  • Migraines
  • Degenerative disk diseases
  • Back pain
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Knee replacements
  • Cancer
  • Depression
  • Anxiety and panic attacks
  • PTSD
  • Learning disorders
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
  • Heart attack

Denied Claims Are Not The End Of The Process

Perhaps you have already applied for Social Security Disability benefits. Perhaps you have received a letter telling you that you have been denied. You are not alone. In fact, a significant portion of the people who apply for benefits are denied at first. This is not the end of the process. The denial can be appealed.

We are skilled at working with your doctor to gather the information necessary to mount a successful appeal. It is critical that action is taken quickly though, because there are deadlines. You can count on us to meet those deadlines and pursue the benefits you need.

Helping Our Clients In More Ways Than One

While our daily activities are centered on helping people like you get benefits individually, we have also done work on a larger scale to help people in your position. Lawyers from our law firm were instrumental in getting the Social Security Administration to facilitate hearings via video teleconference in order to reduce travel and expedite cases. While the wait time is still too long, this has led to significant improvements for disabled people throughout western Wisconsin.
