The Social Security and Supplemental Security Income disability programs are the largest of several Federal programs that provides assistance to people with disabilities. While these two programs are largely different in many ways, both are administered by the Social Security Administration. Only individuals who have a disability and meet medical criteria may qualify for benefits under either program.
In Colorado, there is Park Disability Law that efficiently helps people with disabilities to apply for these programs and get the help they deserve.
“Most people are familiar with Social Security Retirement funds, but are less likely to be familiar with Social Security Disability benefits. If you cannot work because of a physical or mental impairment, you can apply for disability benefits from Social Security.”
Helen Park is the principal attorney of Park Disability Law based in Parker, Colorado and started her law firm after long years of working as an attorney with Social Security Administration. She has moved to Colorado in 2017 and has been helping her clients in need ever since.
“There are two types of benefits that you can apply for. If you have been paying your taxes from your working income, you can qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance benefits (SSDI). If you have not been working recently and have not been paying taxes, you can qualify for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) if you have very low income,” she stated during an interview with Colorado Times.
Having worked on more than 500 of the most complex cases while with Social Security Administration, she has seen what works in a successful claim and what does not. Whether the client is a first time filer, a repeat filer, or someone who wants to appeal the agency’s decision, she helps at every step of the process.
“When you apply, you need to prove through medical and other types of evidence that you cannot work. Unfortunately, most people get denied at least at the initial stage. They do not know how to prove that they cannot work due to their physical or mental impairments. As a former attorney at Social Security Administration, I know what kind of evidence the agency is looking for when they are examining your records. It is a long process and I help claimants navigate it and hopefully win.”
Moreover, Park Disability Law does not charge any costs whether the clients win or lose their claims. They never ask clients for a deposit at the beginning of their cases and send them a bill at the end of their cases. The office only receive fees if they win, and directly from Social Security. Hence, you never have to worry about paying a bill from them.
