Who Is Eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance Benefits in Connecticut?
To qualify for disability benefits, you must meet all the following requirements:
- You are unable to perform gainful work because of a medical condition that is expected to last at least one year or result in death.
- You are under the full retirement age.
- You do not have a partial or short-term disability.
- You meet the Social Security Administration’s (SSA) definition of a disability.
What If My SSDI Application Was Denied?
If you applied for disability benefits and have been denied, you are in good company. Most claims are denied at the initial step. Most applicants are required to complete the next step, which is to request a hearing before an administrative law judge. We can help you complete the appeals process so that you have a much better chance of having your application approved the second time around.
If you have already been in front of an administrative law judge and received an unfavorable decision, you are not alone. You can appeal the hearing decision too. We can help.
If you have been denied by the appeals council, you can appeal its decision to the United States District Court. We can help.
Please don’t hesitate to reach out to our firm for the help you deserve. All initial consultations are completely confidential and free of charge, so there is no risk in giving us a call to discuss your unique case today.
Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
The process for determining disability under SSI is the same as under SSDI. If you are seeking SSI benefits, whether at the initial level, hearing level, or appeals level, give us a call. We can help you obtain the benefits you need. As always, the initial consultation is free, and we will never charge you for anything unless we win.
