How To Apply For SSD Benefits

If you are suffering from a disability that prevents you from earning a living, Social Security Disability (SSD) may be your lifeline to a stable income. The program provides monthly benefits to those who qualify.

The Initial Application

The SSD process can be lengthy and frustrating. The first step requires completing an intensive application. You will need to provide detailed information about your medical condition, job history and past earnings, among other things.

Many people become overwhelmed at this stage because the application is difficult and time-consuming. Yet the initial application is a critical step toward obtaining benefits sooner rather than later. If your application gets denied, you may have to wait months or even over a year to advance your case through a hearing and appeals process. A strong application is your best bet for getting benefits in a timely manner.

Why Having An Attorney Matters

Because the initial SSD application is so important, you should not attempt to wade through it without professional guidance. The Social Security Administration reports that, on average, more than half of all initial applications get denied every year. Enlisting the help of a lawyer can significantly improve these odds.

Don’t make the costly mistake of applying on your own. Instead, you can turn to the Law Office of Morrin & Sands PLLC in New York. We understand the challenges involved in applying for SSD benefits.

Many law firms handle SSD cases only after the initial application gets denied. Our attorneys handle all steps in the process, from beginning to end. We believe it’s important to get involved as early on as possible to maximize your chances of success. What’s more, we can advise you on whether you meet the eligibility criteria for SSD — for example, whether you have a sufficient work history and whether you have a strong case for a qualifying disability.

With our attorneys walking you through the process, step by step, you can have peace of mind knowing we will help you put your best foot forward from get-go.
