Mississippi Gulf Coast Supplemental Security Income and Social Security Disability Claims

Social Security disability insurance (SSD) benefits are granted for mental and physical health problems, and for illnesses or injuries suffered by a dependent or loved one for whom you are responsible. Supplemental Security income (SSI) benefits are available to people who are unable to work because they are over age 65, blind or disabled. Their dependents may receive benefits, as well.

Unfortunately, getting SSD and SSI benefits is a challenge. The application process is long and confusing. Working with experienced attorneys can make the process go more smoothly. LoCoco & LoCoco, P.A., has represented hundreds of people in SSD/SSI claims. Our experience has taught us what it takes to win these cases — we have a success rate of nearly 90 percent. For a free consultation, please call 228-392-3799 or contact us online.

Helping You Get the Benefits You Need

Only about 25 percent of SSD applications are approved on the first attempt. Often, people apply before they have all the necessary information. Applying with the required medical documentation may increase your chance of approval. If you have received a denial, however, you must apply for reconsideration within 60 days. Call us and we can determine why you were denied, and help you fix the problem.

If you are denied SSD benefits after reconsideration, you have 60 days to request a disability hearing. The sooner you contact us, the sooner we can begin working on your claim and gathering the medical documents you need. We can also argue on your behalf at the hearing.

Were you denied after the disability hearing? Our lawyers can help you appeal the decision in federal court.
