Applying For Social Security Disability Insurance

It’s important to keep in mind that workers’ compensation and Social Security Disability Insurance are not mutually exclusive – some injured or sick workers are eligible for both kinds of benefits.

If you expect to be out of work for six months or longer, you may be eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance. The Law Offices of Rex E. Zachofsky can help you determine your eligibility and assist in filing the proper documentation before the deadlines pass.
