Oklahoma Supplemental Security Income Lawyer
Without the right work history, many people are unable to qualify for important SSD benefits for their medical and financial needs. However, if you are not able to work because of your disability, you still have options. At the Ardmore law offices of Polly Murphy, PC, we protect the rights of all disabled people, and if you do not qualify for SSD, you may qualify for support through Supplemental Security Income, or SSI, a needs based program.

In order to qualify for Social Security disability benefits, or SSD, you must have paid into the Social Security System. Workers pay taxes into the Social Security system for future retirement and in order to protect themselves from future disability. Even if you do not have the necessary work history to obtain SSD you may still qualify for benefits from Social Security through SSI. Unfortunately, in some cases, one may not qualify for either SSD or SSI.
Supplemental Security Income was developed to give people without relevant work history access to benefits after a disability has left them unable to support themselves. Much like SSD, you will have to go through a lengthy application process, providing sufficient medical evidence of your disability and how it has affected your ability to perform basic jobs.
