Pennsylvania Social Security Disability Insurance Lawyers
Living with a disability is usually a challenging undertaking, forcing you to find ways to make ends meet despite a dramatically reduced or even completely eliminated ability to work for a living. The Social Security Administration (SSA) is equipped to provide benefits to individuals in such situations, allowing benefits to be paid on a monthly basis which will offset the income that your disability prevents you from earning. Most common among the types of benefits the SSA awards are Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits, which pay set monthly amounts to qualified claimants.
Unfortunately, even qualified applicants can sometimes fail to obtain the SSDI benefits they deserve due to mistakes in the application process or technicalities they were not aware of. At Lowenthal & Abrams, P.C., we understand how difficult it can be to make ends meet while living with a disability, and we are dedicated to helping our clients pursue the benefits they need.

The SSDI program is the primary means by which the Social Security Administration returns benefits to those who have paid into the Social Security system through their taxes during their professional lives. In order to become eligible for SSDI benefits, you must fulfill the following criteria:
- You have worked in jobs covered by Social Security
- You suffer from a medical condition which meets the SSA’s definition of a disability
The complex part of an SSDI application is effectively demonstrating the presence of a disability. With the assistance of an attorney, you may be able to more effectively gather medical documentation of your condition and present it in a convincing manner to the SSA.
If you suffer from a disability that significantly impairs your ability to work, you are likely facing significant financial hardship. With the assistance of a Pennsylvania injury attorney at Lowenthal & Abrams, P.C., you may be able to gain access to financial relief through Social Security disability insurance benefits.
