If you have a disability that prevents you from working in Pensacola, you may have the right to Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits.
A lawyer with the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine can help you apply for SSDI payments or appeal denied or discontinued benefits.
We Can Assist Through Every Step of the SSDI Process
Applying for SSDI benefits can be a lengthy process, often resulting in an initial denial of your benefits. We can help you fill out your Social Security Administration (SSA) paperwork, which requires extensive information about your medical and work history.
The documentation you need includes:
- Your birth certificate
- Proof of United States citizenship
- Your tax returns
- A completed Adult Disability Report
- Your medical records
- Proof of workers’ compensation or other benefits
Our Attorneys will Fight Back Against SSDI Denials
If the SSA denies your initial application, do not start a new application. Instead, consider requesting a reconsideration of your claim. A party not involved with the original denial will conduct the reconsideration.
Our attorneys can look into why the SSA denied your claim and gather and submit new evidence for this review.
We Can Represent You If Reconsideration Doesn’t Work Out in Our Favor
If the reconsideration is unsuccessful, we can represent you during a hearing before an administrative law judge (ALJ). If the judge dismissed your claim, you can then progress to a review by the Appeal Council. If you are not satisfied with the council’s decision, you can request another review. Finally, your last remaining step is to file a Federal Court review.
Our SSDI lawyers will be at your side through every step of this process. If you have a denied application, do not wait to begin your appeal. According to the Social Security Administration (SSA), in general, you have 60 days from the time the administration notifies you of a decision to ask for an appeal. If you do not make the request within this time frame, an ALJ may deny your appeal.
We Can Help You If the SSA Reviews or Discontinues Your Benefits
The SSA routinely reviews SSDI benefits to determine if the beneficiary still qualifies for payments. If the SSA subjects you to this process, we can advise and represent you. We can obtain medical records and other evidence proving you should still receive benefits for your disability.
If the SSA finds information that leads them to discontinue your payments, our lawyers can push back against the suspension of your benefits. We may also be able to help ensure you continue to receive payments during the suspension’s appeal, as well as seek reimbursement for missed payments, if applicable.

How Much Income does SSDI Provide?
The amount of SSDI benefits you receive is based primarily on your work history and the amount you paid into Social Security during your lifetime. The more “work credits” you have, the higher your payments will be.
The SSA applies a formula to your average lifetime earnings to determine how much you receive monthly in SSDI.
Can You Earn Additional Income While Collecting SSDI?
You can earn supplemental income before your earnings disqualify you for SSDI benefits. You may also receive worker’s compensation benefits. However, additional income may reduce your monthly SSDI.
