Social Security Disability
If you are unable to work due to a disabling impairment, legal representation can increase your chances of being approved for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Disabled Widows and Widowers Benefits (DWB), and Disabled Adult Child Benefits (DAC). A Social Security Disability lawyer can provide you with all the information you need to properly protect yourself.
There are state and federal programs in place that provide income and medical care for disabled workers who have been hurt or are otherwise suffering from medical or psychological conditions that prevent them from functioning on a job. You can get information about these programs online at the Social Security website.
Laws Vary State to State
Laws governing disability determinations vary from state to state. Federal requirements for a disability determination are very specific and highly complex. You may find it confusing to even begin the application process. Experienced Social Security Disability (SSD) attorneys may be able to assist you with building a solid case and getting the income and medical care you desperately need.
When filing a disability claim, some laws prohibit you from working within the period your case is being considered. There are programs that exist to provide disabled workers with financial and medical assistance while a disability claim is being examined.
Applying for Disability Benefits
Although you can apply for disability benefits online, it's easy to become overwhelmed by the detailed and lengthy information you will be asked to provide. If you are confined to the home because of illness or injury, visiting a local Social Security office may not be an option. We can put you in touch with a disability lawyer in your area to help ensure that you fulfill the requirements necessary for a successful claim.
Whether you are just beginning the application process, have been wrongfully denied benefits, have a stalled claim, or need to appeal a decision, professional attorneys with experience in disability law can help get you the information you need.
