Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and the legal issues involved in a claim can be complicated. For individuals applying for benefits, it is important to remember that working with an attorney can help make the process easier and ensure that your rights are protected.
At Gesmer & Reynolds, P.C., we represent clients throughout Illinois facing issues involving SSDI, denied benefits, hearings and more. We offer hands-on legal representation for our clients and are committed to providing each one with the individual attention he or she deserves.
If you have questions about your situation, the next step is to contact an attorney. There is no obligation in meeting with our team. Once we evaluate your situation, we can determine if we can help.
How Do I Apply For Social Security Disability?
Social Security Disability eligibility is based on how much and how long you have paid into the SSDI system. If you are not eligible for SSDI, you may be eligible for Supplemental Security Income (SSI). Our lawyers can review your case and help navigate the process, including assistance with:
- The initial application process
- Figuring out how to work well with your doctor
- Understanding how other benefits and income could affect your SSDI or SSI benefits
- Administrative law judge hearings and appeals if your benefits are denied

An attorney will understand the legal process and know when to expect challenges and what needs to be done to maximize your SSDI claim. At Gesmer & Reynolds, P.C., we offer our clients the experience and track record they seek when choosing an SSDI lawyer.
