If you have suffered an injury or illness that has kept you out of work for at least a year, and have previously paid into the Social Security system, you may be entitled to Social Security disability (SSD) benefits. Our attorneys are extremely knowledgeable in this area and can provide you with advice that can aid in your pursuit of benefits.
- We dedicate ourselves to assisting you throughout the process of filing for SSD, from application to appeals. There is an abundance of paperwork involved in this process. Our office is extremely organized and can assist you in efficiently filling out paperwork and preparing you for what tends to be a rigorous questioning at the SSD office. We also assist clients in understanding and applying for supplemental security income (SSI) if necessary.
- Many individuals are turned down for benefits the first time they apply for Social Security disability. The process is designed to filter out some claims in order to ensure that the individuals who are granted SSD benefits are really in need of these funds.
