Are you, or a loved one disabled and unable to work?

Navigating through The Social Security Administration system alone can be overwhelming. We guide you at every step. Let us first explain how it is set up by the federal government. 

The Social Security Administration (SSA)

SSA has been established nationally to provide financial stability to individuals who meet the qualifying criteria through two separate benefit entitlement programs:

Social Security Disability Insurance (SSD)
Supplemental Security Income (SSI)

Both SSD & SSI will pay qualified applicants who are:

younger than full retirement age
hindered by an either a physical or mental impairment

The differences in qualifying for SSD & SSI are based on several important factors:

Social Security Disability Insurance (SSD) - SSD pays benefits if you are disabled and have;

• worked “on the books”
• paid enough in Social Security taxes to file a claim

Supplemental Security Income (SSI) - SSI pays benefits if you are disabled and have;

• not worked
• limited income and assets

If you, or a loved one are disabled and unable to work, we can help!

The Elite Social Security Disability Team of Legal Professionals of Law Offices of Joseph A. Romano, P.C. take immediate action to streamline the process of your SSD or SSI Claim.

Here are five important questions you will be asked during your initial intake session.

1) Are you working?
2) Is your medical condition severe?
3) Is your medical condition described on “List of Impairments”?
4) Can you do the work you have done before?
5) Can you do any other type of work?
