Social Security Law
Mississippi Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) claims allow those individuals who have a sickness, or deficit which hinders their employment to receive payments and other help from the Government. The start of this process is filing a claim with the local branch of the Social Security office. In Jackson this office is located at:
|STE 225 MCCOY FED BLDG
100 W CAPITOL STREET
JACKSON, MS 39269
These benefits can be applied for online at the Social Security Administration’s website http://www.ssa.gov/disability/
These benefits recur on a monthly basis for those individuals who have a condition which has been recognized in the administration’s policies as causing a disability. Listed disabilities that keep or have kept an individual from working for a period of a year can provide benefits. It is common for individuals to be denied Mississippi Social Security and to file an appeal.
Once there is an initial denial of SSDI benefits request, it is common for individuals to seek representation in their appeal, and it is usually worthwhile to continue the process of a Mississippi Social Security appeal and state a case for benefits under the listings.
The only attorney’s fees allowed in a Mississippi Social Security appeal are those amounts that the Administrative Judge allows, and these amounts are subject to a maximum % assessed by the administration.
