Get Financial Support in a Hard Time
If you receive Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits, it can be a huge relief to the hardships of serious health problems and loss of work.
Monthly disability checks from the Social Security Administration help you keep up with your bills.
But more than that, disability income helps you hold on to a measure of dignity and independence in your life.
But filing an SSDI application can be a daunting process. You have to meet Social Security’s complicated definition of disability—not just get a doctor’s note saying you should stay home and rest.
At Nash Disability Law, we can help guide you through the application process, so you avoid the common mistakes we see.
Our disability attorneys have helped more people in the Chicago area win benefits than any other law firm.

How to Qualify for Disability Benefits
YOU HAVE A QUALIFYING DISABILITY UNDER SOCIAL SECURITY’S RULES IF:
- You cannot do the work that you did before;
- You cannot adjust to other work because of your medical condition(s); and
- Your disability has lasted or is expected to last for at least one year
But you can’t just tell Social Security that you meet these qualifications. You have to prove it with details and documentation of your health problems and your ability to function.
This includes providing your medical records, work history and statements from people you know about how your health impacts your daily life.
But you don’t have to get all of this together on your own.
Our disability lawyers handle the legwork, to make the process easier for you.
