Social Security Disability Overview

Unable to work due to a serious injury or illness? If you are unable to return to work for one year due to medical reasons, you might be eligible to receive Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits. The sooner you call our office, the sooner you will get benefits.

Benefits are crucial to those dealing with these severe health problems, but they are very difficult to obtain. Many individuals see their requests denied because they fail to include important information needed to be successful with the claim.

Working with an experienced attorney can help ensure that your request for benefits is complete and proper. At the Law Office of Frank A. Cetero, our lawyers help clients with all steps of the SSDI process. Whether you are considering filing for these benefits or need assistance with appealing a denial, we are confident that we can provide you with the experienced assistance that you need at this time.

Committed To Helping You Obtain Your Benefits

We know that applying for Social Security Disability can be a confusing process. We provide a thorough review of your situation to determine the benefits that are available to you. These possible benefits include:

  • SSDI benefits for clients unable to work due to injury or illness

  • Supplemental Security Income (SSI) — benefits paid to individuals who may not qualify for SSDI or need additional income due to disability

  • Disabled child or disabled widow benefits

  • Social Security Disability benefits and workers' compensation offset 


Each type of benefit has specific criteria that must be met before it will be awarded. Our attorneys will walk you through the process. We assemble all of the medical information and documentation necessary to support your claim.

In the event that your request is denied, we will assist you in appealing any adverse determination. Many Social Security applicants will need to appear at a hearing before being granted benefits. Our attorneys will appear on your behalf at hearings and present a compelling case so you can receive the benefits to which you are entitled.
