Filing Disability with a Mississippi Social Security Attorney

Disability benefits from Social Security are required for people with impairments to be able to meet their necessities. However, qualifying for Mississippi Social Security Disability benefits and filing an appeal if your disability claim has been denied may be perplexing. 

Contact one of our experienced social security disability lawyers at Rollins Law Firm to help you with every step of the application process.

What Is Social Security Disability? 

The Social Security and Supplemental Security Income disability programs are the biggest of numerous government assistance programs for handicapped persons. While these two insurance systems are quite different, they are both run by the Social Security Administration, and only those with impairments who fulfill medical requirements are eligible for disability benefits.

Long-term Social Security Disability Insurance gives payments to you and certain members of your family if you are “covered,” which implies you have worked long enough and paid Social Security taxes.

The payment of Supplemental Insurance Benefits is based on financial necessity.

The common disability programs in Jackson, MS are:

Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI)

This protects you in the event that you encounter a medical disability and are unable to work. SSDI is accessible to persons who have worked long enough and recently enough to have deducted a considerable amount of money from their paychecks.

Supplemental Security Income (SSI) 

For persons who have not paid into the insurance fund through salary deductions. It is given to those who have little or no income and limited possessions, and who may or may not have worked in the past.

Medicare 

A benefit provided by the Social Security Administration. It is a federally financed health insurance program for those over the age of 65, as well as those who have been on SSDI for at least 24 months. Some rare conditions allow for immediate qualifying, but mental conditions are typically not one of them.

Medicaid

A kind of health insurance accessible to SSI recipients. The state manages it for the benefit of its citizens, and the federal and state governments jointly finance it.

Qualifying for Social Security Disability Benefits

SSDI is an insurance program that provides disability insurance benefits to people with disabilities and/or medical conditions. These disability programs are available to disabled people who have worked for five years and have been with a long-term disability that may result in death.  

It is important that you be able to document your medical condition.  Medical records are the most important evidence needed to prove your disability case.  We will help you collect the medical records directly from your doctor.

How to File a Disability Claim for Social Security in Jackson

The Rollins Firm disability attorneys want to fight for you so that you may get the disability benefits you deserve. We can guide you through the process of applying for disability benefits.

A disability, according to the Federal Social Security Disability Act, is defined as an inability to perform in a working setting owing to a physical or mental impairment that is likely to endure for at least a year. If your illness or working while you’re sick may lead to death, you’re considered a disabled person.

Appealing Denied Social Security Claims

Even if you think you have a good reason to get disability benefits, you may still be denied by the Social Security Administration. The Government has special criteria for defining a disability and the description that you provide on your application may not match with their criteria – and BEWARE, you have limited time to appeal a rejected claim before your case is closed.
