There are two main types of Social Security Disability Benefits that Lowery Law Group can help you with:

Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI/Title II benefits) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI/Title XVI benefits).

Social Security Disability Insurance
Social Security Disability Insurance is for individuals who have worked long enough and paid Social Security taxes. When you work, you accumulate quarters of coverage which is what Social Security considers when determining if you are eligible for these benefits. You are generally eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance if you have worked 5 out of the past 10 years. If approved, the amount you will receive in monthly disability payments will be based on the amount of income on which you have paid Social Security taxes. The average monthly payment amount for 2015 is $1,165, but you can receive up to $2,663. To find out what you would receive monthly in benefits check your Social Security Statement.
 
Supplemental Social Security Income
Supplemental Social Security Income is a needs based program.
You may be eligible for Supplemental Security Income even if you have never worked.  Since Supplemental Security income is a needs based program, to be eligible you have to have resources under $2,000 if you are single and under $3,000 if you are married. If approved, the maximum monthly payment amount for 2015 is $733 for an individual and $1,100 for an individual with an eligible spouse.
