Social Security Disability

Denied Social Security?
We can help.

Social Security Disability Insurance was enacted to provide financial assistance for anyone unable to work for at least a year due to accident, injury or medical condition. According to the Social Security Administration, a disability is any condition that is severe enough to prevent a person from working to earn a livable income. For many, this is the difference between maintaining the lifestyle to which you’ve become accustomed and being unable to provide for yourself and your family.

To be eligible to receive either Social Security Disability Insurance benefits and/or to qualify for Supplemental Security Income benefits, the following must apply to your situation:

  • The condition must be severe and interfere with the normal activities of everyday living.
  • The condition must last for a minimum period of 12 months.
  • The condition must impose enough physical or mental limitations or both that you're unable to return to your former job or perform tasks required of work you performed within the past 15 years. Additionally, it must also be severe enough that you're unable to use your education, skills and remaining functional abilities to do some other type of work.

The Social Security Disability process can be frustrating, complicated and lengthy. Claimants in South Carolina with experienced legal representation have a better chance of receiving benefits with fewer appeals than those without representation.
