Step 1: Initial SSD/SSI Application
If you have recently been injured or developed a condition that prevents you from earning income from doing the work you did previously, prevents you from being able to perform other work, and is expected to last for more than one year, you may be eligible for Social Security Disability (SSD / SSI) benefits.
The Social Security Administration (SSA), which approves and denies benefits, is a federal bureaucracy. The rules and requirements for qualification are complex and, unfortunately, many disabled people are incorrectly denied the benefits they need. Mistakes on applications, insufficient information provided, and presenting the information incorrectly can keep you from receiving the benefits you need. Working with an experienced Social Security Disability (SSD / SSI) attorney is your best chance for filing a successful Social Security Disability (SSD / SSI) application.
We will meet with you, or speak with you on the telephone if you are unable to come to our office, at NO CHARGE. An experienced Social Security Disability (SSD) lawyer will handle filling out your paperwork and submitting it to the Social Security Administration (SSA). There is no fee for you unless the application is successful, at which point a nominal fee (usually 25%) is deducted from the retroactive benefits you receive. If the claim is unsuccessful, we will handle the appeal, and once again charge you nothing unless we secure benefits for you.
Working with us on your initial Social Security Disability (SSD / SSI) application means filing an application that specifically addresses the requirements for benefits, and having professionals who are familiar with your case handle any questions and appeals.
