Colorado Social Security Disability Lawyer

Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is not welfare. It is a payroll tax-funded social insurance program whose benefits are granted only after a lengthy verification process during which you must prove that you are disabled. Consulting an experienced SSDI attorney could save you much aggravation.

According to the Social Security Administration, a person qualifies for SSDI if:

  • a physical or mental condition that prevents him or her from engaging in any "substantial gainful work"
  • the condition is expected to last at least 12 months or result in death
  • they are under the age of 65
  • they have worked five out of the last 10 years

Few people know they must endure six months of disability before applying for compensation from Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). As a result, they may file an application prematurely on their own and have it rejected.

If you are entitled to SSDI benefits and your application has been denied, you need an experienced attorney to fight for your rights. Contact the law office of LuAnn Ott Jilot, P.C., for a consultation if you have received a disability denial.
