Michigan Social Security Disability Insurance Attorney & SSDI Lawyer Services

Michigan Social Security Disability Attorney & Lawyer

You may be eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance or SSI benefits. Since 1979 Attorney William Crawforth has obtained Social Security disability or SSI benefits for over 2,000 clients resulting in millions of dollars in benefits for these clients.

If you are a Michigan resident and have become disabled, you may be eligible to claim Social Security Disability Insurance Benefits or SSI benefits. If you’ve already applied for Social Security Disability Insurance Benefits or SSI benefits and have been denied because Social Security doesn’t believe you are disabled, you will need to appeal. You may need to appear before an Administrative Law Judge for a hearing to get the Social Security Disability Insurance Benefits or SSI benefits you deserve.

Many persons applying for Social Security Disability Insurance Benefits or SSI benefits were injured at work and may be eligible for Worker’s Compensation benefits.

Attorney William Crawforth offers legal services to help you claim your rights to these three types of disability benefits:

Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI)

Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits are based on the amount that you paid into the system during your working years. Generally this amount will vary between approximately $200 to $2000 per month or even more.

Supplemental Security Income (SSI)

Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits are paid to individuals who are both disabled and meet certain financial criteria. SSI is a “needs based” benefit based on the assets and income in your household. An individual cannot have more than $2,000 in non-exempt assets. A couple cannot have more than $3,000 in non-exempt assets. A spouse’s income will lower or eliminate your ability to draw SSI. SSI disability benefits are also available for children 18 years old and younger who are disabled and whose parents (or guardians) meet the financial criteria. In 2014 the maximum SSI benefit for an individual is $721 per month.

Worker’s Compensation

Many of the disabled people Attorney William Crawforth represents were hurt at work. Many don’t realize they may be entitled to Workers Compensation benefits. Some have been told by their employer or its insurance company that their injury was “pre-existing”. Sometimes they are told because their injury came on over time they aren’t eligible.

Nothing could be further from the truth. If you are unable to perform your normal job you may be eligible for Workers Compensation benefits even if you aren’t totally disabled according to Social Security. Attorney William Crawforth has pursued Worker’s Compensation benefits for disabled workers in conjunction with his Social Security practice since 1989.  He has obtained millions of dollars in benefits for hundreds of clients.

If you think your disability was caused or aggravated by your job contact Attorney William Crawforth for a free consultation.
