We help individuals obtain the Social Security disability benefits they deserve and are entitled to.
About 75% of all initial applications for disability benefits are denied by the Social Security Administration. Our team helps the disabled from the initial application through the appeal process.
To receive disability benefits under the Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) programs, you must have physical or mental health problems severe enough to keep you from working at a paying job for at least 12 months. The test is not whether you have been unable to get a job; the test is whether you are capable of doing jobs that exist in the work force.
The Social Security Administration uses a set of regulations that take into account your medical condition, your age, education, training, and work experience in deciding if you qualify for disability benefits.
Our team understands the Social Security Disability application process and the regulations the Social Security Administration uses to review claims. We use our experience to prepare your application and work with your doctors to support your application.
If your original application is denied, you may need a hearing in order to be granted Social Security benefits. Statistics have shown that people represented at a hearing by an attorney have been successful more often than those who are not represented.
We do not charge for our services unless you receive benefits. To pay attorney fees, the Social Security Administration will usually withhold 25% of past due benefits. Nothing will be withheld from your regular monthly checks after you receive benefits.
As with many things in life, the sooner the better. As your legal representative, we undertake pre-hearing preparation and perform a great deal of analysis and evidence gathering. We will also work with your doctors to explain the Social Security regulations and obtain a report. For these reasons, the earlier we begin working on your case, the better your chances are of receiving benefits.
