Social Security Disability And Supplemental Security Income

The Social Security Administration offers two types of benefits to people who are unable to work as the result of a disabling condition: Social Security Disability and Supplemental Security Income (SSI). Our lawyer handles both types of claims for clients throughout Minnesota.

While most people think of physical limitations when they hear the word disability, it is important to note that SSD and SSI benefits are also available to people who are dealing with mental health issues. We rely on our more than 35 years of experience to help people make a strong case for why they should receive these valuable benefits.

Social Security Disability And Workers' Compensation

In many cases, issues involving SSD or SSI benefits are linked to workers' compensation issues. If you are injured at work, you may be entitled to both workers' comp and SSD benefits. If your workers' compensation benefits run out and you are still unable to work, it may be necessary to seek long-term disability benefits. We can help explore your options and determine the best path for moving forward.
