SSDI/SSI Overview

Confused by the SSDI/SSI Process? We Can Help

If you have a debilitating injury, condition, illness or disorder that prevents you from working at a substantial gainful activity level, you may be eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits. Unfortunately, obtaining these benefits often requires help from an experienced attorney.

At Rubin Guttman & Associates, L.P.A., we represent people in Ohio who are applying for benefits. We understand the complexities of the Social Security Disability Process and can help you submit your initial application, appeal denials and represent you at hearings before administrative law judges. Our Cleveland SSI and SSDI benefits and claims lawyers can assist you with applications and claims for disorders, impairments and diseases from all 14 categories of the Social Security Administration's listing of impairments:
