Put Our Experience to Work for You
The Social Security Administration (SSA) grants Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits based on an applicant's ability to perform his or her past relevant work or a different job. To make this determination, the SSA looks at the applicant's residual functional capacity, which the SSA defines as "the most you can still do despite your limitations."
For assistance with SSD claims, contact the attorneys at Burge & Burge, PC. We understand that applying for benefits can be confusing and frustrating. Our experienced lawyers can help you through the process and present your strongest case for benefits.

Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) vs. Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
Social Security Disability Insurance (SSD or SSDI) benefits cover mental and physical health conditions resulting from illnesses or injuries. If you have enough earnings during the 10 years prior to becoming disabled, you will be eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSD) benefits. If you have not earned enough income to qualify for SSD benefits, you may be eligible for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits.
