Fauver Law Office in Louisville, Kentucky is private law firm (not affiliated with Social Security Administration nor any other Federal or State Agency) practicing in Kentucky and Indiana in the area of Social Security Disability Law. Shannon Fauver is dedicated to ensuring that eligible disabled claimants who have been wrongfully denied Title II Social Security Disability (SSDI) and Title IV Supplemental Security Income (SSI) receive the benefits they rightfully deserve.
If you have questions regarding your claim or potential eligibility, please feel free to contact us using our free case evaluation form. Please remember, we are here to assist with both SSI and SSDI benefits. If you don’t know what those terms mean, don’t worry as we can explain it to you.
We only collect a fee if you are awarded benefits. If you get benefits, we are awarded 25% of any back benefits you receive (plus expenses). If we are unable to get your disability, then you owe us nothing.
No matter if you are applying for SSDI and/or SSI, you have to meet the same requirements. They can be physical or mental requirements, but both have to be for at least 12 months. You have to be being treated and compliant with your doctor’s orders. You have to be unable to work for at least12 months in order to qualify for disability.
The difference between SSI and SSDI is as follows;
SSDI, Social Security disability income, is for someone who worked five out of the last 10 years before they became disabled. The amount of money you would get if you are awarded disability is based on the amount of money you paid into the system prior to filing for disability.
SSI, supplemental security income, is for someone who has not worked five out of the last 10 years before they became disabled. The amount you would be eligible for depends on household income.
