What do you do when Social Security turns down your application for disability benefits? Unfortunately, many people are initially turned down for Social Security Disability benefits even though they actually do qualify.
We understand how frustrating it is to be told by a doctor that you have a disability, only to hear from the Social Security Administration that you don't qualify for disability benefits. Social Security Disability Insurance ("SSD" or "SSDI") and Supplemental Security Income ("SSI") are programs intended to help people like you.

Attorney Debra J. Venhaus helps clients in Lynnwood, across North King County and Snohomish County, and throughout the state with a wide variety of complex problems with SSD applications and appeals, SSI appeals and VA disability benefits appeals.
- SSD and SSI claims: The two main sources of federal disability benefits, SSD and SSI are intended to help people with disabilities that prevent them from working for at least 12 months. The two programs have different eligibility standards, and both can be used in conjunction with other benefits such as personal injury or workers' comp settlements or insurance benefits.
- Applying for SSD: If you qualify for Social Security Disability benefits, we can help you with your initial application. We will make sure the application and underlying documentation are complete and submitted correctly so you are much less likely to face an initial claim denial.
- SSI and Social Security Disability appeals: Many applicants are denied at first, even when they qualify for benefits. An experienced SSD/SSI attorney can help you overcome that initial denial and get the disability benefits you need.
- Veterans Administration disability benefits appeals: If you are a Veteran who has had an initial claim for benefits denied, we can assist you in the appeals process.
