Social Security Disability (SSD) functions as a safety net for those who become unable to work due to a significant injury or disability. It provides monthly benefits to help you get by when you are not able to work at your full earning capacity — or work at all — due to a debilitating medical condition.
To qualify, you must demonstrate sufficient work history. You must also prove that your condition meets the legal definition of a qualifying disability.
The process for obtaining Social Security Disability benefits can be challenging. The paperwork alone can be overwhelming. You must first complete a lengthy and time-consuming application. If that application gets denied, or if the Social Security Administration requests additional evidence, you must take further steps to seek benefits. A hearing before an administrative law judge may also become necessary.
At any stage of the process, you should not risk leaving valuable benefits on the table because you attempted to handle it your own, without the benefit of professional guidance.
At the Law Office of [firm], we can guide you through the process from start to finish. We handle SSD cases on a contingency fee basis, meaning it will cost you nothing upfront for experienced, professional representation. Our goal is to help you get the benefits you need as quickly and hassle-free as possible.
Our attorneys handle SSD claims at any stage of the process. We can walk you through the difference between SSD and SSI (Supplemental Security Income) — two distinct benefits that are often confused. Within SSD, our lawyers also represent those pursuing disabled child benefits and survivor benefits. Whether you are wondering whether or not you qualify, or your application has already been denied, we can step in and develop a confident course of action.
If you are disabled and have questions about SSD, contact the Law Office of [firm] for answers. Based in Westbury, New York, we serve clients throughout the region. We offer convenient evening and weekend appointments by request.
