Were you denied the benefits you need?

Applying for Social Security Disability benefits can be a confusing and difficult task. Many people are turned down due to misreading directions or because they were uninformed about the process. An attorney can help you work within the system to get the benefits that you deserve.

Am I eligible?

If you have been disabled because of an injury and if you have paid social security taxes for five of the last ten years as a member of the work force, than you may qualify for benefits. In order to qualify you’ll have to prove that your health will be compromised for a year or longer.  It’s important to understand that claiming not to be able to work includes all types of work and not just doing the job that you had before your injury. The government offers a Benefit Eligibility Screen Tool (BEST.)  BEST allows you to see what kinds of benefits you may be entitled to.

How Much Assistance Can I Expect?

Benefits are calculated by looking at several factors. It depends on how much income you were earning before your injury as well as how you were contributing to the Social Security system as an employee. If you are receiving worker’s compensation, than that money becomes a factor as well.

How Long Does it Take?

The application process in itself can be a long ordeal. If you are denied, then there is an appeals process where you can ask to be reconsidered. If you continue to be denied, there is an opportunity to go before an Administrative Law Judge who will review your application, records, reports and even hear testimony surrounding your individual case. In situations where you will be before an Administrative Law Judge, it is crucial that you have an attorney by your side.
