Social Security

If you are disabled, or unable to work, you may have the right to obtain Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Social Security Income (SSI) payments.  The process for applying for SSDI or SSI payments, and filing appeals, can be complicated and confusing.  Working with an attorney who can assist you every step of the way is critical to your success.


Jim can advise and represent you in such areas as the following:

  • Explaining and demonstrating your eligibility for benefits
  • Helping you satisfy the criteria of the disability evaluation
  • Obtaining and reviewing your medical records
  • Establishing your right to benefits through the disability appeals process
  • Represent you at hearings


Disability applicants must prove a period of disability lasting at least 12 months based on either a physical impairment or a mental impairment.   There are special guidelines for applicants 50 years of age or older.  For persons who do not have enough recent work history to qualify for SSDI benefits, Jim can advise you about collecting payments and Medicaid benefits under the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program.  For additional information and a free evaluation of your claim, contact Jim Kidney at (859) 261-4700.
