Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits provide financial support to individuals whose physical or mental limitations prevent them from working. You must be totally disabled for 12 months or more to qualify for Social Security Disability benefits.

The federal government considers you to be “disabled” and entitled to SSDI benefits if:

  • You cannot do work that you did before;
  • The Social Security Administration decides that you cannot adjust to other work because of your medical condition(s); and
  • Your disability has lasted or is expected to last for at least one year or to result in death.

While this seems relatively straightforward, there is plenty of wiggle room in determining an SSDI disability. In fact, the government denies many SSDI claims at the initial stages of the process.

The Law Offices of Dr. Bill LaTour focus exclusively on assisting clients throughout Southern California with their SSDI benefits claims, as well as claims for Supplemental Security Income (SSI). Tapping into our extensive experience and knowledge, we can effectively assist you with your claim.

Attorney Bill LaTour has been a licensed psychologist since 1989. He understands the mental and physical impairments that result in disability as well as the mental and emotional stress that can be associated with pursuing SSDI benefits.

SSDI Essentials – What You Need To Know

SSDI benefits are intended to provide financial benefits to individuals who meet the federal government’s strict criteria for a disability that prevents them from working. Often someone suffers a severe injury, or they are suffering from a debilitating disease. SSDI benefits are for individuals who have been a worker and paid into the Social Security system.
