We will help you make sure your family’s basic needs continue to be met.

How SSDI Helps Disabled Workers In Pennsylvania

SSDI is available to anyone who is unable to work due to a serious injury or medical condition that they expect to last at least 12 months or cause their death. You must also have worked a certain number of years to qualify. The Social Security Administration, which administers the SSDI program, considers a wide range of conditions to be disabling, including:

  • Paralysis
  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
  • Muscular dystrophy
  • Certain types of cancer

As a worker, you pay into the SSDI program from withdrawals from your wages. But when it becomes necessary to make a claim, the SSA can be reluctant to grant you your rightful benefits. In fact, the agency rejects the majority of initial claims. Fortunately, you have the right to appeal. We will prepare your appeal using your medical records and other evidence, and present a strong case before the administrative law judge. We will take your case to federal court if that is what it takes.
