Stephanie M.C. v. Social Security Administration

Case Number: 5:22-cv-00199

Judge: Gary M. Borden

Court: United States District Court for the Northern District of Alabama (Madison County)

Plaintiff's Attorney: Seth Thompson

Defendant's Attorney: Jack B. Hood and Brian C. Huberty

Description: Huntsville, Alabama social security disability lawyer represented Plaintiff seeking review of the denial of her application for Social Security: SSID Tit. XVI benefits by HHS.

Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits are paid to people who are unable to work because of a medical condition that is expected to last at least 12 months or result in death. To qualify for SSDI benefits, you must:

Have worked in jobs covered by Social Security.
Have a medical condition that meets Social Security's strict definition of disability.

The amount of SSDI benefits you receive depends on your earnings history and the number of dependents you have. Benefits are paid monthly and are not taxable.

If you are approved for SSDI benefits, you may also be eligible for Medicare after 24 months of receiving benefits. Medicare is a health insurance program for people aged 65 and older, people with certain disabilities, and people with End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD).

Here are some of the benefits of SSDI:

Monthly cash payments to help you meet your basic living expenses.
Medicare coverage after 24 months of receiving benefits.
Protection against losing your home or other assets.
Continuation of health insurance coverage if you become reemployed.
Help with job training and placement services.

If you think you may be eligible for SSDI benefits, you should contact the Social Security Administration (SSA). The SSA can help you apply for benefits and determine if you are eligible.

You can apply for SSDI benefits online at or by calling the SSA at 1-800-772-1213.

Here are some additional things to keep in mind about SSDI benefits:

The application process can take several months.
You may be required to undergo a medical examination.
You may be required to provide evidence of your disability, such as medical records and letters from your doctor.
The SSA may deny your application at first. If your application is denied, you can appeal the decision.
