How can I qualify for South Carolina Social Security Disability benefits?
To be approved for SSDI or SSI benefits, you must qualify at each step of a five step process. Each step has specific requirements, and concrete evidence must be submitted to show that those requirements have been met. It is critical that your case be presented properly so that you may collect the benefits to which you are entitled.
How can an advocate help my claim?
It is widely known that Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits can be extremely difficult to obtain in South Carolina. Many feel that the SSDI system is designed to be so complicated and time-consuming that the average person will simply give up. Some feel that the South Carolina Social Security Disability System expects you to give up on fighting for the benefits you deserve!

Should I get one of the big national firms to represent me?
