Attorney Helping People With Disabilities Apply for SSDI and SSI Benefits in Milwaukee County and Waukesha County

If you have a disability that prevents you from working, you may qualify to receive benefits from the U.S. Social Security Administration (SSA). However, these benefits are not automatically granted at the time you become disabled. Rather, you will need to go through an application process to prove your eligibility, and this process can often be long, complicated, and difficult to manage on your own.

Attorney Jonathan Pearson has dedicated his career to making the process easier by providing legal guidance and representation for people with disabilities as they seek Social Security benefits. With Jonathan, you have an attorney who thoroughly understands how to apply and who has helped his clients overcome many of the obstacles that may arise. He will handle your case personally from beginning to end, and he only charges for his services after successfully acquiring benefits for you.

Options for Applying for Social Security Disability Benefits

Before applying for benefits, it is a good idea to consult with an attorney for advice regarding your eligibility. Once you are confident that you qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), Supplemental Security Income (SSI), or both, you have a few different options for starting the application process.

If you are applying for SSDI benefits, the most convenient option is usually to complete the application online through the SSA website. If you prefer to speak to a representative while completing your application, you can choose to do so over the phone by calling 800-772-1213, or 800-325-0778 for the hearing-impaired, or you can schedule an appointment to complete the application in person at the Social Security office closest to you. However, you should keep in mind that in-person appointments may be limited during the COVID-19 pandemic.

If you are applying for SSI in addition to SSDI, you may also be able to complete your application entirely online if you meet certain criteria related to your age, marital status, and citizenship. If you do not meet these criteria, or if you are applying for SSI separately or for a child, you can complete some application forms online, but you will need to finish your application by speaking to a representative over the phone or in person.

What Should I Include in My Application?

Whatever application method you choose, Jonathan will help you follow the appropriate steps and ensure that you include all important information with your application. The SSA asks that you prepare many different kinds of information, including:

  • Personal information: This includes your date of birth and birth certificate, your Social Security number, and information about your spouse and children under the age of 18. This shows the SSA that you meet basic eligibility criteria related to your age and history of contributing to Social Security, and it may show that your spouse and children are eligible for family benefits.
  • Medical information: This includes detailed information about your condition, the tests and treatment you have undergone, the medication you have been prescribed, and the doctors, hospitals, and other health professionals who have provided your treatment. This shows the SSA and the Wisconsin Disability Determination Bureau (DDB) that your impairment is sufficiently severe to qualify for benefits.
  • Work information: This includes pay stubs, tax returns, and income statements, as well as information about your past work history and any other benefits you have filed for related to your disability, including workers' compensation. This shows the SSA that you are incapable of performing substantial gainful activity (SGA) and that you meet important criteria related to your Social Security contribution history or your income and resources, depending on the type of benefits you are applying for.

  • Thank you so much Jonathan. I was so tired of waiting almost 2 years for my disability hearing and you told me always stay positive and to not give up. You met with me before my hearing and told me what to expect and when you told me the judge approved my case I was so relieved! The Social Security disability payments I get allow me to keep seeing my doctors and really help us out. Thank you!
