    Would Disability Income Make Your Life Easier?

    This could be the hardest thing you’ve had to face: serious health problems and no income because you can’t work. How can you survive?

    There is a way forward.

    Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits provide monthly checks and qualify you for health coverage through Medicare or Medicaid.

    With this support, you can start to imagine living your life again and enjoying the things that are most important to you.

    But the Social Security Administration (SSA) doesn’t make it easy to get benefits. Most people get denied at first.

    You don’t have to face this alone. You can find experienced and caring New Orleans Social Security lawyers at Empower Disability. Workers’ Compensation, LLC, created Empower Disability to focus specially on Social Security Disability claims for Louisianans.

    What Types of Disability Benefits Can I Get?

    Social Security runs two main disability benefits programs. Your individual situation determines which one is right for you.

    • Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI): If you worked in recent years and paid enough into the Social Security system through taxes, you could qualify for SSDI. This pays monthly checks and qualifies you for Medicare when you can’t work because of health impairments.
    • Supplemental Security Income (SSI): If you don’t have much recent work history and your income and other financial resources are low, you could get SSI. This provides monthly checks to help with your basic expenses and qualifies you for Medicaid health coverage.

    If you are wondering whether you qualify for Social Security Disability or which type of disability benefit is right for you, you can talk to the New Orleans Social Security lawyers at Empower Disability by Workers’ Compensation, LLC.

    Our disability attorneys in New Orleans don’t charge you anything to take a look at your situation and let you know where you stand.

    “Call Workers’ Comp, LLC. You’ll Be Glad You Did.”

    David Baldassaro is a military veteran who grapples with severe post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). A disability lawyer from Workers’ Compensation, LLC, helped him keep his disability benefits.

    Transcript -

    David: I was in the military eight years. I suffered from PTSD and OCD. My time in the military, I think made it worse due to the stress. My parents had been helping me out, and they suggested that I try to get my Social Security or Disability. And so I did that and they sent me to Charity Hospital, and that’s where I saw somebody there, and they sent me to another place in Marrero where I live. And that’s where I was diagnosed. I’d been on a SSI, disability. From 2003 to 2013, 10 years. And then I got an inheritance and I was told by the Social Security office that once my inheritance was spent, that I would automatically get the disability back. It didn’t work that way. I had to reapply. I was denied. And then that’s when I contacted Workman’s Comp.

    The way I heard of Workman’s Comp was I looked in the phone book for a lawyer nearby in Gretna, Louisiana. And I called the lawyer and I said I was looking for someone that did SSI Disability. And the lawyer, he just gave me a phone number and I called that number and it turned out to be Workman’s Comp. It was Monica, Monica Ferrero at Workman’s Comp. My neighbor at the time he Googled. We didn’t know Workman’s Comp. We knew Monica Ferraro for the name that she gave me over the phone. And he Googled Monica Ferraro and her credentials. She was educated at the best schools in Italy. She met the Pope when she was a child. Ms. Ferraro went to the court and met me at the courthouse. And we talked before we went in to the see the judge. And we went in, we went in and see the judge. There was an expert witness there. She ruled in my favor three times. And at the time I thought it was over, I thought I lost. I misunderstood. And on the way coming out of the courtroom, Ms. Ferrero is going like this, smiling and going like this in front of the judge.

    And I told her, ma’am I said, if it don’t work out, I thank you for your help. And she said, no, you won. But it’s going to take a little while to get your money.

    If you’re injured on the job or need help with Workman’s Comp for Social Security call Workman’s Comp LLC. You’ll be glad you did.
