Comprehensive Care Through A Complex Process
When an injury or other traumatic event has left you physically or mentally disabled, Social Security Disability benefits can provide you and your family with crucial financial support. These benefits can replace lost wages due to your inability to work and can provide Medicare health coverage after you have recieved 24 months of disability benefits.

Title II Benefits: Social Security Disability Insurance
Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is, essentially, a form of government insurance that serves workers who have become disabled and who are therefore no longer able to work. To be ‘covered’ by SSDI, you must have paid Social Security payroll taxes for at least five of the last 10 years. The size of the SSDI payments you are eligible to receive is determined by the amount you previously paid in taxes. In order to qualify for SSDI, you must demonstrate that you suffer from a physical or mental disability that makes you unable to do full-time work for at least 12 months, or which is terminal.
Title XVI Benefits: Supplemental Security Income
Supplemental Security Income (SSI) provides support for disabled individuals who have not met the tax contribution level required for ‘coverage’ under Social Security Disability Insurance. Those eligible for SSI payments include low-income adults, children under the age of 18, and the blind.
