Do You Have a Social Security Disability Claim? We Built Empower Disability to Help. See More! »


    Do You Want to Know Whether You Could Get Disability Benefits?

    Social Security Disability benefits bring incredible relief when you can’t work because of serious health problems.

    Monthly checks. Access to Medicare or Medicaid health care coverage.

    It makes a major difference to get these benefits. You can rest easier knowing that you have some stability back in your life.

    Unfortunately, most people get denied.

    Qualifying for Social Security Disability seems straightforward: You can’t work; you get benefits.

    But that’s deceiving. When you get into the details, it’s much more complicated.

    Go easy on yourself: get the Social Security Disability lawyers at Empower Disability, a division of Workers’ Compensation, LLC, to look at your situation and help you understand whether you qualify.

    We’re local Louisiana lawyers who treat you with respect and dignity. You deserve that. This is a highly personal situation and a difficult time in your life.

    You might see national disability firms telling you they can help. But be careful.

    They may make their website look like a government site, when it’s not. They may send you someone who’s not a lawyer. They may try to rush you through their process, denying your fair share of time and attention before your hearing with a disability judge.

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

    Do I Qualify for Social Security Disability?

    These are the basic qualifications for Social Security Disability benefits:

    • You have health problems that limit your daily functioning.
    • You can’t continue in your past job because of your health.
    • You also can’t switch to a different, less strenuous job.
    • Your condition has or is expected to last at least a year.
    • For Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI): You’ve worked and paid into Social Security a substantial amount.
    • For Supplement Security Income (SSI): You don’t have much recent work history, and your income and other financial resources fall under certain levels.

    It seems pretty simple to say that you can’t work, so you should get benefits.

    But you can’t just say it. You have to prove it. You need medical records, work history details, statements from people who know you, and more.

    It’s not all on you to gather this. The disability lawyers at Empower Disability by Workers’ Compensation, LLC, can handle the legwork for you.

    And, if your health limitations are related to an injury on the job, we can also help you maximize your workers’ compensation benefits.

    You pay nothing for us to take an initial look at your case and let you know what to expect.

    Does My Illness Qualify for Social Security Disability?

    Social Security has a long list of impairments that can qualify you for disability benefits, and it has guidelines for the evidence you must submit for each one.

    But your diagnosis or medical condition doesn’t have to be on that list for you to get benefits.

    The most important thing is that your health problem or any combination of health problems limits your ability to function.

    We’ve seen people win disability benefits for all of these conditions and more:

    • Anxiety
    • Autism
    • Back and Spine Injuries
    • Diabetes
    • Depression
    • Cancer
    • Cardiovascular Diseases
    • Fibromyalgia
    • Heart Failure
    • Lupus
    • Mental Illnesses
    • Multiple Sclerosis
    • Ulcerative Colitis

    No matter whether you have any of these conditions or other ones; the most essential part of your disability claim is always the medical evidence you provide and how it shows that you can’t work.

    Work with an Empower Disability/Workers’ Compensation, LLC, disability lawyer to start your application, and start working toward a better life.

    You pay no attorney fee until you win benefits.
