What is Social Security Disability?
Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is a federal program in the United States that provides financial assistance to individuals who are unable to work due to a qualifying disability. Administered by the Social Security Administration (SSA), SSDI is a crucial safety net for individuals who, due to their medical conditions, are unable to engage in substantial gainful activity and need financial support.
To qualify for SSDI, individuals must have a severe medical condition that is expected to last for at least 12 months or result in death. The condition must significantly limit their ability to perform basic work-related activities.
In addition to a qualifying medical condition, applicants must have earned a sufficient number of work credits through their employment history. Work credits are earned based on the individual's work history and income.
The following is a brief overview of the SSDI application process:
- Initial Application: The process begins with the individual filing an application for SSDI benefits with the SSA. This involves providing detailed information about their medical condition, work history, and other relevant details.
- Medical Documentation: Applicants are required to submit medical evidence, such as medical records, test results, and physician statements, to support their disability claim.
- Decision by the SSA: The SSA reviews the application and medical evidence to determine eligibility. If approved, the individual becomes eligible for monthly disability benefits.
Once approved, SSDI recipients receive monthly payments based on their average lifetime earnings covered by Social Security. The amount of the monthly benefit is determined by the individual's work history and the contributions they made to the Social Security system through payroll taxes.

There are times in your life you are so hurt and feel life has a grudge against you. Nothing in your life is going right. I lost the most important person in my life to death, of which I knew mistakes were made because I witnessed it with my own eyes. When you contact a law group you most of the time get all business and a matter of fact conversation. I want all to know that from the first phone call they listened to my lengthy story, sobbing most of the time with so much compassion. They never made any promises but offered assurances that no stone would be unturned. They fulfilled every word they said. They restored faith that I had lost. Until you are in a position like mine you can never know how invaluable Lanier Law Group is. They were wonderful while maintaining their professionalism. They treated me like a family member. They really do care about their clients. But most of all they are the best at what they do. I worked in the court system for years so I knew how attorneys and law firms basically operated. Understanding the law and it's interpretation is the ultimate key to winning any case. Also know that if an attorney/attorneys study and review your case and know that you don't have a chance in a court of law and are big enough to tell you that instead of giving you false hope, you then my friend have a group with valuable shared values. I have so much respect for everyone in this Law Group. I recommend Lanier Law Group, P.A. to anyone who needs representation, they are in your corner. 20 out of 10 stars.- Diane W.
I started working with Lanier Law Group in 2020 on my Social Security Disability case. They from start to finish were awesome. My case manager Janet Hanks and attorney, Ashley Sappenfield were always available to answer all my questions. I did not have to do much but sit back and let them handle whatever was needed. My case took too long (2 years) and if I did not have Janet and Ashley My case would still not be approved. I would recommend Lanier to anyone to get the job done and approved. Do not go to another firm with your case, who promise the world and do not see it to completion and do not think another firms would have worked as hard as they did on my case. Lanier Law Group will always be the choice for me and all my family members to handle any cases of this type and other legal services they provide. They went above and beyond!- Phillip J.
Mrs. Gonzalez did an awesome job of explaining everything in detail and keeping me informed on the status of my case. Despite poor customer service with the insurance company, Mrs. Gonzalez was able to fix what they could not. Mrs. Gonzalez was very helpful with helping me understand things that I was not aware of when dealing with insurance claims. I am so thankful for her expertise and professionalism.- Mario H.
