Social Security Disability (SSDI)

Helping You Obtain SSDI Benefits

A serious physical or mental health disability can make it impossible to work, leaving the sufferer with no source of income. The good news: Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits are available to those with serious and chronic impairments. While the process of obtaining benefits is complex, an experienced attorney can guide you through the steps while giving you the best possible chance of getting approved.

At Hochberg & Hamar, PLLC, in Edmonds, we handle SSDI claims and appeals for people throughout Washington. Our attorneys, Bill Hochberg and Rachel Hamar, know the SSDI system and can help you navigate every step of the process, handling all of the red tape and legal details so you can focus on your treatment. Many of our SSDI clients have reached the stage where they must apply for benefits due to a workplace injury or a personal injury caused by someone else’s negligence.

Am I Eligible?

You may feel disabled and know in your heart you are, but you must meet the Social Security Administration’s (SSA’s) definition of disabled before being approved for benefits. In order to qualify:

  • You must have a qualifying physical or mental health disability. Numerous impairments are covered, including heart disease, cancer, diabetes, depression and bipolar disorder.
  • Your condition must have lasted at least 12 months or be expected to last at least 12 months or be expected to result in death.

Our lawyers are well-versed in the SSA’s requirements and the types of evidence that are likely to sway SSA officials. We can provide you with the representation you need to pursue a successful claim.

Claim Denied? Do Not Despair.

Most successful claims are approved during the SSDI appeals process. If your initial claim was denied, do not despair. This is only the beginning of the process. We can represent you in any written appeals or hearings with SSA officials.
