If you had Social Security taxes taken out of your paycheck for at least five of the past 10 years, but now you have a health condition that does not allow you to hold any type of job, you may be eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits. If you did not work long enough or consistently enough to qualify for SSDI, you may still be eligible for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits.
At the law firm of Damon J. Baldone &: Associates in Louisiana, we are here to guide you through the process of finding the money and benefits you need from the Social Security Administration (SSA). Houma and Terrebonne Parish Social Security Disability lawyer Damon Baldone is knowledgeable about both SSDI and SSI claims and can help you recover the benefits you’re entitled to.
