    Do You Want Someone Who Can Help with Your Disability Application?

    It’s hard enough that you can’t work because your health is bad. Now, you have to wrestle with a complicated Social Security Disability application.

    On the other side of this process, though, are monthly checks, health insurance access, and getting a sense of peace back in your life.

    If only someone could help you through it.

    Someone does, the Social Security Disability lawyers at Empower Disability, a division of Workers’ Compensation, LLC. We created Empower Disability to focus completely on helping Louisianans apply for disability benefits.

    Here, you can find local Louisiana lawyers who treat your situation with respect and dignity.

    You want to work with someone like that, not a national disability firm that treats you like a number. That kind of firm may make its website look like a government site as a sneaky way of getting you to sign up with it.

    With big out-of-state firms, you might not get a fully trained lawyer to represent you. Your representative might not take the time to truly listen to you and understand your situation—even before you have to speak to a disability judge.

    With offices around Louisiana, we help people in Metairie, New Orleans, Hammond, the Northshore, Baton Rouge, Houma, Lafayette, Alexandria, Shreveport, Monroe, or anywhere else in the state.

    What You Need to Apply for Social Security Disability Benefits

    Applying for Social Security Disability is an involved process. Social Security won’t award you benefits based on your just saying you can’t work.

    You have to prove it.

    You do that by filling out many forms and submitting a lot of information, such as:

    • Records of your diagnosis
    • Documentation of the medical treatment you’ve undergone
    • Doctor’s reports on how your impairments have responded to treatment
    • Lists of prescriptions you take
    • Details of your past work history
    • Testimony from people who know you on how your medical problems shape your life

    You don’t have to take on all of this yourself. The disability lawyers at Empower Disability by Workers’ Compensation, LLC, help you collect and present all your information and your case for benefits.

    We know what information is and is not important for your claim.

    We can also help you if you were hurt at work and need workers’ compensation benefits.

    You pay no attorney fee until you win benefits. And you don’t have to pay anything for us to take an initial look at your case and let you know what to expect.

    Should You Apply for SSDI or SSI?

    When you’re applying for Social Security Disability benefits, you have to decide which of the two benefits you should pursue or whether you should apply for both.

    Both types are meant for people who can’t work because of serious medical impairments.

    The difference is in your work and financial background.

    • Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI): This is for you if you have substantial recent work history and you paid into the Social Security system through the taxes withheld from your paychecks.
    • Supplemental Security Income (SSI): If you haven’t worked a significant amount in several years and your overall financial resources fall below certain levels, you could get SSI. This could be for you if you’re unable to qualify for SSDI due to lack of recent work history. However, you may also qualify for SSI while you are waiting for your SSDI payments.

    The Empower Disability and Workers’ Compensation, LLC, disability attorneys can help you sort out your options and then fight for the benefits that could make your life easier.
