Connecticut Social Security Disability Lawyers
Are you disabled and living in Connecticut? If so, you may be eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), Supplemental Security Income (SSI), or both. Ask yourself these questions:
- Do you struggle to pay your bills because you are unable to work?
- Have you had to stop working, or cut back on your work hours because of a serious medical condition?
- Is your disability longstanding or expected to be longstanding?
- Have you lost your health insurance because you can no longer work full-time?
If you answered yes to these questions, the experienced attorneys at MN Law may be able to help you get SSI or SSDI – the federal disability assistance you need. An attorney at our law firm literally wrote the book on Social Security Disability – and she’ll send you a free copy!

SSDI Versus SSI Benefits
The Social Security Administration (SSA) offers two disability programs that may apply to your case. Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) may be available to those who have worked substantially in the past but who are no longer able to work because of a disability.
A second government program known as Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is available to disabled people who have not worked substantially and who have limited financial resources.
SSDI and/or SSI benefits are available to Connecticut residents whose physical or mental condition limits or prevents them from working. A serious accident or injury that keeps you from working may also qualify you for disability benefits.
To obtain either SSDI or SSI benefits, you must be “totally disabled” as determined by the government. But the rules about who qualifies for SSI and SSDI are very complicated. Yes, you can handle the case without an attorney, but that can be risky. Here’s why:
- You may be denied, even if you should have been approved.
- Your case may take longer than it needs to.
- You may not receive all of the benefits that you legally deserve.
Here’s How MN Law’s Connecticut SSD Lawyers Can Help You!

Don’t give up if your initial claim is denied
If you have already filed an initial claim and it has been denied, don’t despair. The national average rate of denials in the initial stages of an SSD claim is close to 70 percent. That means 7 of every 10 claims are denied. But you only have 60 days to file what’s known as a Request for Reconsideration to appeal the denial of your claim. Don’t delay. Call MN Law today so we can file this appeal for you.
If your Request for Reconsideration is denied, you have the right to appeal for a hearing before an Administrative Law Judge. At this level, the success rate for claims is about 56 percent nationally. Most claimants have an attorney helping them at this stage. In fact, statistics show that hiring an SSD attorney greatly increases your chances of obtaining a successful result.
The SSD attorneys at MN Law get extraordinary results for our clients because we know the law, and because we have the experience and skills needed to build successful cases. MN Law will help you determine whether you qualify for SSDI or SSI, even if you have been denied in the past.
