Explore Your Eligibility for Government Benefits

If you find yourself unable to work due to a disability resulting from an accident, illness, or any type of physical or mental impairment, you may be eligible for federal benefits through Social Security. Our team would be honored to help you navigate the complex application process for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program.

To begin, we can figure out which assistance program will be best for you:

  • Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is a federal program that provides benefits based on disability and work credits. To qualify for SSDI benefits, you must meet Social Security’s disability criteria and must be “insured” due to contributions you’ve made on your earnings or earnings made by a spouse or parent.
  • Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a different type of program that provides benefits based on age/disability and income. In Nevada, the state pays an optional state supplement to SSI recipients who are elderly or blind and to people with disabilities only under limited circumstances, such as being part of a couple with an elderly or blind partner.

Evaluating whether you qualify for benefits paid by Social Security can be difficult, which is why you should let our professional SSDI lawyers handle that process for you. We want what’s best for you, which means finding the best way to get the most benefits possible in your name.

How Our Nevada SSD Attorneys Can Help

The Social Security disability process is notoriously complex, and individuals who attempt to navigate the claims or appeals process on their own often encounter difficulties that result in claim denials or delays in obtaining much-needed benefits. At Bertoldo Carter Smith & Cullen, our SSD lawyers are passionate about helping people navigate all aspects of the Nevada Social Security disability system. We can deal with the Social Security Administration (SSA) on your behalf, so you don’t get frustrated by delays and complications that might arise.

Our comprehensive services provide representation to help you:

  • Determine your disability qualifications to ensure you meet requirements.
  • Accurately complete and file all forms for initial applications.
  • Evaluate and gather necessary medical records and evidence to support your claim.
  • Review your claim for potential weaknesses and how to secure benefits as efficiently as possible.
  • Act on your behalf in SSD hearings before an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ).
  • Discuss how to move forward with a federal court appeal if necessary.

Don’t Face the Appeals Process Alone

If your initial application for benefits has been wrongfully denied, don't give up. Our dedicated attorneys can stand by your side throughout the hearings and appeals process. We can fight tirelessly to represent your interests, gathering necessary evidence, preparing strong arguments, and advocating for your rights. Reach out to us today, so we can keep fighting for the benefits you need after a denial.
