If you or your loved has a disabling medical condition and is unable to work, disability benefits may be available through Social Security. Sadly, navigating the claims process and recovering benefits is often challenging. We are focused on helping disabled people secure and maintain the full financial support they need and deserve. Our Phoenix attorneys handle the full spectrum of Social Security disability claims, including:

  • Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI): SSDI is the primary federal disability program. As it is funded by your payroll tax contributions, you must have a sufficient work history (based on your age) to qualify for coverage. Spouses/children may also be eligible for SSDI benefits based on a person’s earning history. Call our Phoenix SSDI lawyers to get more information about your rights or your options.
  • Supplemental Security Income (SSI): Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is the other major federal disability insurance program. In contrast to SSDI, SSI is a needs-based program funded out of the general tax revenue. You can apply for SSI disability benefits if you have little or no work history. If you need help getting SSI benefits, our Phoenix Social Security disability lawyers can help.
  • Disabled Widow(er)s Insurance Benefits (DWIB): Disabled widow/widower benefits allow a person to apply for disability benefits through the earnings record of a deceased spouse. With very limited exceptions, your disability must have started before your spouse’s death or within seven years of their passing to qualify for these benefits. There are other complex eligibility rules as well. If you have any questions about Disabled Widow and Widowers Insurance Benefits (DWIB), our Phoenix Social Security disability attorneys can help.
  • Disabled Adult Child (DAC) Benefits: A disabled adult may be eligible to get Social Security disability benefits through the earnings record of a parent. To qualify for DAC benefits, an adult child must have developed their disability before their 22nd birthday. If you need help recovering Disabled Adult Child (DAC) benefits in Phoenix.
