SSD Impairments

Social Security Disability Insurance (SSD or SSDI) provides benefits to individuals who are unable to work for extended periods of time due to a qualifying impairment(s).

Proving your impairment can be difficult, especially when you are already struggling to pay your bills or recover your health. At William Long Whitesell, LLC, we provide compassionate, tenacious representation to Social Security Disability claimants seeking full and fair benefits.

Do I Qualify For Social Security Disability Insurance?

In order to qualify for SSDI, you must be found to have a qualifying impairment, or a physical or mental condition that can be demonstrated by established diagnostic techniques. The impairment must be severe enough to prevent you from holding any paying job for at least 12 months.

Some examples of common impairments include:

  • Cancer
  • Heart disease
  • Lung disease
  • Loss of sight or hearing
  • Mental illness such as depression or bipolar disorder

Many people suffer from depression or other mental health problems after sustaining a serious injury, illness or disability. Our SSD professionals will take the time to fully understand the extent of your disability in order to ensure that your claim is thorough and compelling.

When qualified claimants are denied by the Social Security Administration, we help them pursue appeals and other options for obtaining a favorable decision. We do not stop until we have exhausted every possibility to get you the benefits you deserve.
