available to individuals in Las Vegas?
The Social Security Administration (SSA) offers two disability benefits programs, Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), and Supplemental Security Income (SSI).
- SSDI is available to disabled individuals between the ages of 18 and 65, regardless of their financial resources. Applicants must have paid into the Social Security system through income tax deductions, however, and have acquired a certain number of work credits, based on their age.
- SSI is only available to disabled individuals who are 65 or older or blind and who demonstrate financial need. These benefits are means tested which means an applicant’s income and financial resources cannot exceed a certain threshold.
Whether you are seeking SSDI or SSI, obtaining these vital benefits is difficult — nearly two-thirds of initial claims are denied for the following reasons:
- Not having sufficient work credits (SSDI)
- Having resources above the threshold (SSI)
- Having a medical condition not considered a qualifying impairment (SSDI/SSI)
Regardless of the reasons for a denial, it takes a highly skilled disability benefits attorney to protect your rights. When you work with Roeschke Law, LLC, we will stand by you every step of the way.
I called Kiel after years, and years of struggling with Crohn’s Disease. I worked for years during extreme flare ups until eventually my body couldn’t take it, and I was hospitalized and bed ridden for the better part of 2 years. During that time Kiel took on my case, and took the pressure and worry off me and allowed me to concentrate on recovering. Kiel gathered all medical records and necessary material with no stress on me... when all was said and done, because of Kiel’s diligence, I was notified 2 weeks prior to my appeal hearing that the decision was going to be entered “Fully Favorable” bypassing the actual hearing.
Kiel really works hard for his clients, he kept me well informed about what was going on with my case and with his positive outlook during this process he kept me positive until the final outcome. He is very knowledgeable, professional, and cares for his client. I am VERY happy with how Kiel handled my case and I would recommend him to anyone fighting to receive their disability benefits.
Mr. Roeschke was recently my attorney for a disability hearing. He was very knowledgeable, friendly,and explained the whole process so i could understand what my potential outcomes could be, good or bad. This was my second firm I had gone through for those particular proceedings. My previous attorney I feel, had dropped the ball on my case. Kiel came to the rescue and took on my case when nobody else would and he got a decision that was in my favor.
Under SSA guidelines, a disability is defined as an impairment that (1) is expected to last at least one year or result in death and (2) prevents you from performing any substantial gainful activity (SGA). The SSA will also consider whether you can perform the same type of work or be retrained to perform another type of work.
In addition, the SSA maintains a list of qualifying impairments, known as the Blue Book, that disability examiners use as a guide in evaluating claims. Because it is not possible to include all the conditions that qualify as a disability, you may still be eligible even if your condition is not listed. However, a disability examiner must determine that the condition you suffer from is medically equivalent to a listed impairment.
Given the complicated eligibility requirements for obtaining Social Security disability benefits, it is crucial to have the informed representation that Roeschke Law, LLC provides. When you become our client, you will have peace of mind knowing that our experienced Las Vegas disability lawyers are in your corner.
An application for disability benefits can be submitted to the SSA field office in Las Vegas in person, by phone or online. The application process is complicated, however, and you must provide medical evidence that supports your claim. If there are errors or omissions in the application or you fail to meet the technical and medical eligibility requirements, your claim will be denied.
