The Law Office of James P. Shea - Exclusively Dedicated to the Practice of Social Security Disability and SSI Law
An Overview of the Disability Process
(click on a topic for more information)
The Social Security system provides two benefit
programs for the disabled: Social Security Disability
(DIB) and SSI (Supplemental Security Income).
Social Security disability beneficiaries receive three
benefits: a retroactive award (because time passes
between the application and approval, and some forms
of benefits can be paid retroactively to a date even
before the date of application), a monthly benefit
check and medical insurance benefits.
Our office handles Social Security disability and SSI cases on a contingent fee basis. In other words, we are paid only if we succeed in getting benefits for you.
