Social Security Disability Lawyers – Serving Tucson and the Surrounding Areas
Our Social Security disability lawyers handle the following types of cases:
Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI)
When you can’t work because of a disability, Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) may provide cash payments. Benefits are paid based on a qualifying work history and a medical condition that prevents working. Whether you are preparing to file your case or needing to file an appeal, we can assist you. Our team can pursue your case in full. We can even represent you in federal court.
Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
Supplemental Security Income (SSI) can help if you have limited income and limited resources. You don’t have to have a work history to qualify. Our lawyers want you to get your benefits in full and get your benefits quickly. In addition to cash payments, you may qualify for Medicaid (the Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS)).
Disabled Adult Child (DAC)
If you are disabled as a young adult, you may not have enough of a work history to qualify for SSDI payments based on your own record. You may claim benefits through the Disabled Adult Child (DAC) program from the work history of a parent. Our lawyers understand the qualification requirements and what to do to claim your benefits.
Disabled Widow and Widower Insurance Benefits (DWIB)
When you are disabled, you may depend on a working spouse for support. If they pass away, you need financial help. You may receive Disabled Widow Insurance Benefits (DWIB) based on your spouse’s earnings record. It depends on your age and the number of years since your spouse’s death. A divorced spouse may qualify for benefits, too. We can help you throughout the application process.
