Citizens Disability Helps People Win Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) Benefits
Since 2010, Citizens Disability has helped hundreds of thousands of hard-working Americans apply for and win their Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) Benefits.
We are America’s premier Social Security disability advocacy group. No one is more aggressive, or handles more SSDI cases, than we do.
We stand by our clients and help them with every step of the process, from initial application all the way through Appeals Council and beyond.
Not only did Citizens Disability help me get accepted on to disability payments, a year later when it was time for me to be put on Medicare, they contacted me repeatedly. At first I didn’t know why, but when I finally got back to them they had an insurance expert compare plans to find me the best option. This was included in my original fee! Outstanding service all the way around.

Andy B., Ohio
I couldn’t be happier than I am right now. I’ve tried to get disability years ago, and then I contacted Citizens Disability and they were able to help me and the judge came back with a fully favorable decision on my behalf. I couldn’t have won this without the help of everyone at Citizens Disability. Awesome company and support from all. I can’t thank you enough.
Laura T., Idaho
One step at a time, Citizens never gave up keeping me informed thru the entire process. Even when I became discouraged Citizens would lighten my load with new and promising information. Citizens is highly recommended by me. Excellent work, excellent results. Job well done. A thousand thank-you(s) to the entire team at Citizens Disability.
Vanice B., North Carolina
Citizens Disability was a life saver. I hired them after I appealed my denial. They were very attentive and kept me informed about my case every step of the way. They won my case and I would refer anyone to them because they give excellent service!!!

Passionate People. Proven Process.
Our team helps clients navigate the complex procedures and hearings necessary to obtain disability benefits. We understand the financial and emotional burden that the SSDI process can put on our clients. As a result, we assist our clients with all aspects of the process, from filing initial applications to representing them at hearings.
You must meet several criteria in order to qualify for SSDI. You must be insured, which means you must have worked and paid federal payroll taxes (FICA) for five of the last 10 years. You must also apply before reaching full retirement age (65-67), and you must meet Social Security’s definition of total disability.
If possible, seek more frequent medical treatment for your condition(s). Keep a tally of all the physicians you’ve seen over the years and a current list of medications. Give your physicians ample time to complete Residual Function Capacity (RFC) questionnaires on your behalf. Call us whenever there are changes to your medical treatment, or if your condition worsens, so we can request additional medical records.
RFC stands for “Residual Function Capacity,” and refers to the maximum amount of work you can do, despite your mental/physical impairments. The purpose of an RFC is to determine how your limitations impact your ability to meet the demands and requirements of the standard workplace. The RFC questionnaire is usually completed by a Disability Determination Services (DDS) physician, who reviews the medical records on file, but does not have the opportunity to meet you in person. We will provide you with mental and physical RFC questionnaires that can be completed by your physicians, who are most familiar with your limitations.
Plenty. Whether you are denied at the initial stage or following an appeal, contact us and we will help determine what your next step should be. You can appeal a denial or start the process from scratch by filing a new application. Our representatives will help determine which option is best for you.
The SSA receives hundreds of thousands of applications each month. It can take 5 to 7 months from the date of the initial application to receive a decision, and if appeals are necessary, the process can take several years. Applicants must be patient, but Citizens Disability will work to make the process as quick and easy as possible.
Independent studies have shown that your odds of receiving a favorable decision are significantly improved with representation. The Citizens Disability team of advocates will handle your initial application, stay on top of updates, meet deadlines, file appeals, write letters to judges on your behalf, and accompany you to hearings — thus increasing your odds of receiving a favorable decision.
Our fees are determined by government statute. For the vast majority of cases we handle, we receive 25% of the accrued benefit amount, up to $6,000. We do not impose fees up front and we only get paid if your claim is successful. If your claim is denied, you pay nothing.
