Social Security Disability
Under the Federal Social Security Disability Act, “disability” means the “inability to engage in any substantial gainful activity by reason of any medically determinable physical or mental impairment which can be expected to last for a continuous period of not less than 12 months or results in death”.
If you are disabled from performing substantial gainful activity you may be eligible for Social Security Disability, (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income, (SSI). Unfortunately the Social Security Administration often denies truly disabled Claimants. All too often, it takes an experienced Lawyer with a thorough knowledge of the laws and medical listings to get disabled Claimants benefits.
Let us increase your chances of early payment by guiding you through the application process. By law anyone may file for his or her own Social Security Disability benefits. Statistics show that Claimants who have representation, win their benefits much more often than those who apply on their own. LET US HELP YOU prepare your application properly from the beginning to avoid these problems.
The government makes the process very difficult. Waiting lines are long. Forms are complicated. Benefits are often denied to people who have good claims. And not just once; frequently twice. Sometimes more often. As a result many people who apply on their own become discouraged and intimidated. They simply back off, give up, and go away, even when they are most likely entitled to benefits. The period to file for disability may disappear if you do not apply within the first five years that you stopped working. You must act quickly!
Let our 99% rate of winning work for you!
Social Security Disability Benefits (SSD) are paid to individuals who have worked for 20 quarters within the last 5 years of filing for disability and have paid into the Social Security system. It is especially important to hire an experienced attorney if you are under 55 years of age. The criteria is stiffer for those under 55, and especially under 50.
You can receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI) if you are indigent and disabled, whether or not you have worked in the past, or missed the deadline to file for regular Social Security Disability benefits.
