    Do You Want More Power Over Your Future?

    It’s hard enough that you can’t work because your health is bad, and you don’t know how you’ll pay your bills. Now, you’re wrestling with a confusing Social Security Disability application.

    If you get through this, you can get monthly checks, health insurance access, and a sense of peace back in your life.

    If only someone could help you.

    Someone does: The Social Security Disability lawyers at Empower Disability.

    Here, you can find local Louisiana disability lawyers who treat your situation with respect and dignity—lawyers who focus on helping everyday people, lawyers who focus on you.

    National disability firms treat people like numbers. They may put up a website that looks like a government site to make more people click. Their representatives may have little time for you.

    Our licensed attorneys have dedicated their careers to helping people stand tall again after life’s setbacks. We’ll take time to listen, understand and empower you.

    Empower Disability helps people in Kenner, Metairie, New Orleans, Chalmette, Gretna, Marrero, Houma, the Northshore, and anywhere in Louisiana.

    How to Apply for Social Security Disability Benefits in New Orleans, Metairie and All Over Louisiana

    How to Apply for Social Security Disability Benefits in New Orleans, Metairie and All Over Louisiana

    Applying for Social Security Disability is a burden. Social Security won’t award you benefits just because you say you can’t work.

    You have to prove it.

    You do that by filling out many forms and submitting a lot of information:

    • Records of your diagnosis
    • Documentation of your medical treatment
    • Doctor’s reports on how your impairments respond to treatment
    • Lists of your prescriptions
    • Details of your work history
    • Statements from friends and family on how your life has changed because of medical conditions

    Applying for disability benefits is a little like a game. If you make the right moves early, with your first application, you have a better chance of winning in the end.

    The disability lawyers at Empower Disability help you build your best possible case for benefits.

    We know what information you need—and don’t need—for your claim.

    Our Social Security Disability attorneys have more than 40 years of combined experience helping thousands of people in Louisiana.

    You pay no attorney fee until you win benefits. And you don’t have to pay anything for us to take an initial look at your case and let you know what to expect.

    Should You Apply for SSDI or SSI?

    Should You Apply for
    SSDI or SSI?

    When you’re applying for Social Security Disability benefits, you have to decide which of two types of benefits you should seek—or whether you should apply for both.

    Both types are meant for people who can’t work because of serious medical impairments.

    The difference is in your work and financial background.

    • Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI): This is for you if you have substantial recent work history and you paid into the Social Security system through the taxes held from your paychecks.
    • Supplemental Security Income (SSI): If you haven’t worked much in years and your overall finances fall below certain levels, you could get SSI. If you’re unable to qualify for SSDI because of a lack of recent work, SSI could be for you. You could also qualify for SSI while waiting for your SSDI payments.

    Empower Disability lawyers can help you sort out your options—and fight for benefits that restore dignity and self-sufficiency to your life.

    Let’s get started.
