Description: Detroit, Michigan social security disability lawyers represented Plaintiff seeking review of the denial of her application for Social Security: DIWC/DIWW benefits by HHS.

Here are some key aspects of social security disability law:

Eligibility: To be eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), you must have worked and paid Social Security taxes for a certain number of years. You must also be disabled, which means that you cannot work due to a medical condition that is expected to last for at least 12 months or result in death.
Benefits: If you are found to be disabled, you will receive monthly benefits from the Social Security Administration (SSA). The amount of your benefits will depend on your earnings history and the number of dependents you have.
Appeals: If your initial claim for disability is denied, you have the right to appeal. You can appeal your case to the SSA's Office of Disability Adjudication and Review (ODAR). If your appeal is denied by ODAR, you can appeal to the Social Security Appeals Council.
