Social Security & Disability

If you have a Social Security & Disability problem, contact us and request a free consultation.

If you are unable to work due to an illness, an injury or other disability, you may be eligible to receive Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) monthly payments and healthcare benefits. In addition, Mario and Bean Legal Services may be able to appeal your case for these benefits if you have previously been denied.

Our expertise can significantly assist you in obtaining SSDI or SSI benefits. There are important differences between the SSDI and SSI programs. SSDI provides medical insurance to disabled people who have paid into the federal Social Security trust fund through the Federal Insurance Contributions Act (FICA) taxes. SSI income is a needs-based program that provides financial aid to disabled people who meet low-income guidelines, and they are available regardless of one’s employment history.

To qualify for either SSDI or SSI benefits, you must prove you are unable to work due to a medical condition that is expected to last at least one year, or that is terminal. While millions are approved each year for Social Security benefits, many claims are denied. And many others have their SSDI or SSI benefits terminated.

Mario and Bean Legal Services can provide the legal support you need throughout the Social Security claims process and offer invaluable assistance in all of your interactions with Social Security Administration. Our services include ensuring your compliance with all federal forms, applications, deadlines and requirements, including the submission of your medical files and other documentation.

If you are denied benefits, we will appeal your claim. If you are required to appear before a Social Security Administration Law Judge, we will prepare you for the hearing and present your case before the judge.
