Welcome to Minnesota's Social Security Disability Center.
No one ever asks to be impaired or to have their ability to work limited. Yet, that is often an unforeseeable consequence of life. In fact, statistics say that as much as 25% of the population may become disabled during their lifetime. This is where social security and a social security attorney can help.
The Social Security and Supplemental Security Income disability programs are the largest of several Federal programs that provide assistance to people with disabilities. One of the main goals of the Social Security program is to pay social security financial benefits to those who are disabled; in essence, providing them with a 'safety net.'
Both the SSDI and the SSI programs are administered by the Social Security Administration and only individuals who have an impairment and meet certain medical criteria qualify for benefits under those programs.
Social Security Disability Insurance pays benefits to you and certain members of your family if you are "insured," meaning that you worked long enough and paid Social Security taxes.
Supplemental Security Income pays benefits based on financial need.
Minnesota's social security center includes links to social security disability articles and disability laws. Even more importantly, on this site you may contact social security disability attorneys and lawyers ready to assist you with claims related to Social Security Disability (SSD) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) issues.
- Are you about to file a Social Security Disability (SSDI) claim?
- Has your Social Security Disability (SSDI) claim already been denied?
All too often social security claims are denied because incomplete documentation was provided or the impairment was not presented in a compelling way to qualify under the social security disability programs.
We can assist you to prevent that from occurring. In addition to providing affordable and aggressive social security representation, our disability lawyers will assist you in finding solutions to your difficult social security issues. Remember, there is no fee unless you recover on your social security disability claim.
When you apply for either program, we will collect medical and other information from you and make a decision about whether or not you meet social security's definition of disability.
