There is no need to feel that you are asking for a "government handout" if you seek disability benefits. Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is similar to other types of insurance - you pay in while you are healthy and working so that you can draw benefits in a time of need.
Through the years a portion of your paycheck has been paid into Social Security for times like these when you can no longer work. If you can no longer work or have become disabled as a result of some life changing injury or illness, let our registered nurse attorney help you win your Social Security Disability benefits. From our offices based in Indianapolis, we proudly serve clients from throughout the state of Indiana.
Are You Eligible for SSD Benefits?
If a doctor has told you that you have a disability that is likely to last 12 months or longer, you may be entitled to social security disability benefits. All Indiana cities, from Indianapolis to Kokomo, apply the same federal law to determine if you are eligible. So no matter the town, the law is the same. The statewide practice of Golitko & Daly will help you no matter what city you live in.
You have paid into Social Security as long as you have been receiving paychecks, precisely to prepare for the difficult situation that you now face. Whether your disability is expected to be temporary or permanent, you may be eligible for SSDI benefits if your doctor says you will be unable to work for 12 months or longer.
