SSDI Denials Attorney — Washington

Successfully Resolving SSDI Denials on Behalf of Eastern Washington Residents

If you’ve been denied disability benefits, you are not alone. In fact, it’s common for initial Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) applications to be denied. However, it is important to know that a denial does not mean the end of the road for you. There is a process for handling SSDI denials, and the dedicated legal team at Schott Law is prepared to guide you through the process to secure a successful outcome.

Types of Social Security Benefit Programs

It can be useful to familiarize yourself with the type of benefits you were seeking to determine why your claim may have been denied.

  • Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI): Anyone who has worked a valid job at any point in their life has paid into Social Security through payroll taxes. If you have become incapacitated due to a disability or serious medical condition that prevents you from being able to work, you may be eligible to receive income supplements through Social Security Disability benefits. Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is paid to qualifying candidates and their families if they have worked long enough and paid into Social Security.
  • Supplemental Security Income (SSI): SSI differs from SSDI. It is funded by general tax revenue rather than Social Security taxes, and it pays benefits to disabled citizens based on financial need. SSI is meant to help blind, aged, and disabled people who have little to no income by providing financial assistance for food, clothing, shelter and other basic human needs.
