The Social Security act provides specific mechanisms to deal with individuals who apply for Social Security benefits after they have become disabled. Social Security Disability benefits are available under two programs Social Security Disability / Retirement Survivors Disability Insurance (SSD/RSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI).
The main difference in the programs is SSD is based on money paid into the Social Security system from work or self employment income, while SSI is not based on prior work history, but is needs based. Regardless of which of these benefits you fall under you can choose to have an attorney represent you at any point in the process.
