Attorney Jim Black offers representation on Social Security Disability cases. This encompasses both Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI). SSDI, commonly referred to as Social Security Disability, is available for any individual who can not engage in substantial gainful activity because of a physical or mental impairment which is likely to last 12 months or more, or result in death. SSDI is available for those who are fully insured through payroll deduction. If one does not have a work history and is not insured, SSI is available as long as they meet certain asset levels.
Most people who apply for SSDI or SSI are turned down twice. The denials require action within 60 days. If one waits more than 60 days, a new application process must be initiated. The Law Office of Jim Black & Associates can help by gathering together the evidence necessary to establish that one meets the definition of disability under the Social Security Law.
