Social Security Disability
If you suffer from a medical condition and cannot work, you could be eligible for Social Security Disability (often called SSD or SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits. Contact us today for a FREE consultation. We will evaluate your case and inform you of your eligibility for disability benefits. Having an experienced Social Security Disability attorney on your side can make an important difference and can often be the difference between winning and losing.
Who is eligible for Social Security Disability benefits?
To receive SSD, you must suffer from an injury or illness that prevents you from working for at least 12 months, or is terminal. Many conditions are considered to be disabling by SSD, including both physical and mental disorders. We know what Social Security looks for in a successful application.
Have you already applied for Social Security Disability?
Many claims are denied simply for simple omissions or other technicalities. We know the proper way to present your disability claim to better ensure success. Having a skilled lawyer on your side can often make the difference.
Have you received a denial on your disability application?
First rule: don’t give up. Remember, denial of an initial application is quite common. Often having capable legal counsel is going to give you and your case the added advantage and punch to get over the hurdle and win.
If you are a retiree:
» Are you over the age of 45?
» Did you retire less than 5 years ago?
» Do you suffer from physical and/or mental conditions?
You could be eligible for Social Security Disability in addition to your pension. Receiving Social Security Disability benefits will not affect your pension, and in many cases can mean an additional $1,500 to $2,300 per month in benefits, plus a retroactive check.
If you are receiving treatment from a doctor for injuries or medical conditions for any reason, you should consider applying for Social Security Disability today.
You can still apply for Social Security Disability if you are:
» Collecting unemployment
» Collecting workers’ compensation benefits
» Collecting welfare
» Still working (in some cases, depending on various factors)
