Know Your Options If You Experience Visual Impairment
If your ability to work has been significantly impaired due to blindness or severe vision impairment, you may be eligible to receive Disability Insurance Benefits (SSDIB). The experienced Social Security Disability attorneys at Babut Law Offices, PLLC, are ready to help if you need an experienced and skilled advocate.
We may also be able to help you obtain Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits if you are not eligible for Disability Insurance Benefits . Supplemental Security Income (SSI) provides benefits for people with limited income and assets who are at least 65 years of age, severely vision impaired or disabled.
Obtaining Benefits for Those With Visual Impairment
You do not have to be completely blind to be eligible for SSDIB or SSI. You may be eligible for SSDIB or SSI if you are legally blind. You are legally blind for purposes of SSDIB or SSI if your vision cannot be corrected (e.g. glasses or contacts) to better than 20/200 in either eye, or if your visual field is 20 degrees or less in your better eye.
Even if you are not legally blind, we may still be able to help you obtain benefits if your vision impairment, or a combination of impairments, is expected to significantly impact your ability to work for at least 12 months. If your application for SSDIB or SSI has been denied, let us put our experience to work for you.
Our lawyers have advocated passionately on behalf of thousands of clients who were seeking SSDIB or SSI benefits. We have a strong record of results in SSDIB and SSI appeals because we devote significant time and attention to each case we handle. We understand that the outcome of your case will significantly impact you and your family, so we are committed to providing the vigorous representation you need.
