We Assess Your Chances Of Being Eligible

There are two key questions involved in determining whether a person qualifies for Social Security benefits: "Were earnings contributed into the Social Security system for a sufficient period of time?" and "Is the person disabled?"

These may seem like fairly simple questions to answer. However, the majority of people who apply for benefits are denied. This is not necessarily because they are not eligible, but because they have not answered the two questions to the Social Security Administration's satisfaction.

At the Law Offices of Stuart Barasch in Miami, Florida, we have decades of experience in these matters. We know how to quickly determine whether you are eligible. More importantly, we know how to prove to the Social Security Administration that our clients are eligible.

Did You Contribute To The Social Security System?

In order to be eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), you are required to have worked for a certain period of time and contributed a certain amount in Social Security taxes. If you are not eligible for SSDI, you may still be eligible for Supplemental Security Income (SSI).

Are You Disabled?

To be considered disabled by the Social Security Administration, you must have an injury or illness that is expected to impact your life and prevent you from working for at least 12 months. While your doctor may agree that you are disabled, this may not be enough for the Social Security Administration.

A disability must be on the SSA's list of impairments. If it is not, the medical documentation must be absolutely clear about how the condition will prevent you from being able to work for a year or more. Our lawyers understand the documentation that the Social Security Administration is looking for — and we take great care to make certain they get it.
