Good afternoon,

With regard to your post:

"I have a disability, but have some questions. Do I need to pay an attorney ? I will be getting DI from my employer. Can I still get SDI ?" --------- You are in the social security category here. There is no SDI in Social Security. Did you want to know if you can file for SSDIB? (Social Security Disability Insurance Benefits?
