Social Security Disability Income is provided by the Social Security Administration. It is separated into two categories Supplemental Security Income, or SSI, and Social Security Disability Insurance, or SSDI.
Supplemental Security Income is a Social Security program that provides monthly benefits to people who are disabled, blind, or over 65 years of age and have limited or no income. These benefits are paid in two forms monetary benefits and medical assistance on a monthly basis
Social Security Disability Insurance is also provided by the Social Security Administration. However, SSDI is different from SSI in that it is offered to disabled persons who have a certain number of "work credits" as deemed by the Social Security Administration. These work credits are obtained through paying into the social security program through your wages.

This is a hearing that you will attend before an Administrative Law Judge. It is critically important that your medical records be throughly reviewed, and that you are prepared for the type of questions you will be asked. A vocational expert may also be present at this hearing. Their job is to give their opinion on which jobs you may perform in the current market. Understanding the nuances of the questions asked can be critically important. It is of utmost importance that you have legal representation at these hearings to ensure you are properly represented.
If you are not successful in obtaining your Social Security benefits upon your initial application, we will file for reconsideration. This is done without the necessity of a hearing. Failing to ask for reconsideration in a timely manner can result in the forfeiture of your claim.
If your claim is denied after an Administrative hearing, our team in Jacksonville, Little Rock, & all around Arkansas can request that your claim be reviewed by the Appeals Council, which has the option of approving, denying, or remanding your case back to the Administrative Law Judge
In rare cases it may be necessary for your claim to be appealed to the Federal District Court. This is a rare step but if it occurs Wren Law Firm is there to help.
