Helping You Get The SSD Benefits You Need

Meeting the strict guidelines of the Social Security Administration (SSA) is crucial in any disability claim. The SSA denies more than 70 percent of initial claims. The reasons for denial vary, but many applicants could benefit greatly from the assistance of an experienced attorney who is familiar with the process and can effectively handle appeals.

At the Law Offices of Vickers, White, and Griffin, PLLC, our Montgomery Social Security Disability lawyers handle claims for individuals throughout Alabama. We handle Social Security Disability (SSD) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) claims and appeals. Our lawyers ensure that all necessary documentation of our clients' injuries is in order and that applications are accurate. We can help you through the process of obtaining all necessary medical records and evaluations for any qualifying physical or mental impairment.

If you have been injured at work, we will discuss both workman's compensation insurance and disability insurance with you. Depending on your unique circumstances, you may want to weigh your options.

Speak with an experienced attorney today at 334-649-7363 or 866-391-9990 toll free to schedule a free initial consultation. All SSD and SSI cases are handled on a contingency fee basis — we don't get paid unless and until you get paid.

What Is The Difference Between SSD And SSI?

  • SSD is based on a person's work history, how much money the person has put into the Social Security system during his or her working career, and the person's particular disability. People who qualify for SSD may qualify for Medicare coverage approximately 29 months after the onset of disability.
  • SSI is a needs-based assistance program for disabled people with fewer than $2,000 in assets or $3,000 for married couples. People who qualify for SSI automatically qualify for Medicaid coverage.

If you qualify for either disability benefits program, you will be entitled to back payments dating back to your initial application date or the onset of your disability. We will help you pursue the best possible path for your particular situation to avoid risks, safeguard your health and build a path to financial stability.

Denied By The SSA? How Do You Appeal A Disability Benefits Denial?

If you are impaired from maintaining "substantial gainful activity" or are expected to be unable to work for at least 12 consecutive months, you most likely qualify for disability benefits. If your claim has been denied, don't give up.

We can file a request for reconsideration and a hearing before an administrative law judge (ALJ) if your claim is denied again. We can fight for the disability benefits that you and your family need.
