Helping Clients Receive The SSDI And SSI Benefits They Deserve
For those suffering from physical and/or mental disability, working may no longer be an option. Those facing an inability to work must often confront hardships, which include dealing with the condition preventing them from working, coming to terms with the humbling experience of not working, and struggling to pay their bills. Fortunately, those who are unable to work due to disability can sometimes find relief through Social Security Disability. In place of employment, Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) provides a source of income for those who qualify. Additionally, Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a government program that pays benefits to disabled adults and children who have limited income and financial resources.

Can You Get SSDI For A Workplace Injury?
Nicolet Law Office, S.C., is ready to help workers who have been injured on the job or as a result of workplace activities, as well. We will determine whether your injury and disability qualify you for Wisconsin workers’ compensation and also assist you with applying for SSDI benefits you may be entitled to receive, in the event you cannot return to work.
Typical work-related disabilities include:
- Back, neck and spine injuries
- Brain injuries
- Repetitive stress injuries to tendons, ligaments and joints
- Knee, hip and ankle injuries
- Amputation, loss of the use of a limb
- Loss of eyesight, blindness

What Is SSI?
While SSDI is tied to income and work history, SSI is considered a financial supplement. These benefits can be paid to any age group as long as minimum financial requirements are met. Additionally, the recipient must prove that he or she cannot work while suffering from a qualifying physical or mental disability such as heart disease, cancer, lupus, anxiety or depression.
Don’t give up hope if your initial claim for SSDI or SSI benefits has already been denied. You have the right to appeal your case through the administrative courts. The Social Security Administration (SSA) reports that as high as 65% of all initial claims are rejected, often because of minor details or missing information. Bring your denied claim letter to us. We will review your application and start work immediately to help you with an appeal.
How Much Will It Cost? You Pay Only If Your Claim Is Approved.
By federal law, attorneys may only receive fees if they are successful in helping their clients receive benefits. The amount of money you pay will be restricted to a percentage of the money you are owed by the government, dating back to your date of eligibility. You will never pay additional money out of any future benefit payments you receive.
