The law office of Jeffrey Flynn, P.C. Attorney at Law is here to help you obtain the benefits you deserve. There are two types of Social Security benefits available; Social Security Disability insurance and Supplemental Security Income. To obtain these benefits, an individual must be incapable of working due to a medical condition. This condition must result in at least 1 year of continued medical treatment or your illness could potentially result in death.
Social Security Income or SSI is a Federal income supplement program that is funded by general tax revenues. It is designed to help the elderly people with disabilities and the blind who have little or no income. SSI provides cash to meet basic needs for food, clothing and shelter.
Social Security Disability or SSDI pays disability benefits to you and certain members of your family who provide your care if you are unable to work due to an injury or illness that could result in death. Your medical condition must last at least 1 year or result in your death in order to receive SSDI benefits.

- The first step is the initial filing of your claim. You can have an attorney file your claim or file on your own online or at your local Social Security office.
- After filing, most claimants are typically turned down. You must file a reconsideration at this point which is a complete review of the claim by someone other than the person who made the original decision. You only have 60 days from the time you received the original denial decision to file your reconsideration claim.
- If you are denied benefits a second time, a hearing will be scheduled. This hearing will take place before the Administrative Law Judge whom will then conduct a hearing at which you will present your case in person.
- If your case is denied after your hearing with the Administrative Law Judge, you must appeal the case to the Appeals Council (a review board within the Social Security Administration). At this point they will either send the case back to the Administrative Law Judge for further review or allow the Administrative Law Judge's decision to stand.
