Filing For Social Security Disability Doesn’t Have To Be A Discouraging Process

A high percentage of Social Security Disability applications are denied, simply because important parts of the application process are inadequately addressed. Applicants working with an experienced attorney have a better rate of success.

Have You Been Unable To Work For 12 Months Or Longer?

The Social Security Administration (SSA) requires a complex application with proof of your disabling condition by way of medical treatment records, vocational and educational details and other detailed information prior to issuing benefits. You will need to submit evidence that your disabling condition is more than a temporary disability — lasting or expected to last for at least 12 months — and limits your ability to do basic work such as:

  • Lifting
  • Standing
  • Walking
  • Sitting
  • Remembering
  • Maintaining regular attendance

The scope of disabling conditions is broad and can be a result of:

  • Hereditary conditions
  • Congenital impairments
  • Traumatic accidents
  • Infectious diseases
  • Degenerative processes
  • Repetitive strain
  • Toxic exposure
  • Amputation
  • Cancer

The SSA provides for compassionate allowances to expedite new applications for individuals diagnosed with certain conditions that include end-stage renal disease, certain cancers, adult brain disorders and a number of rare disorders. An experienced attorney can determine whether or not your claim meets that criteria and guide you to an expedited decision on your claim.

Whether you need help filing the application or have had a claim denied, our firm has the knowledge to answer your questions. We will guide you through every step of the Social Security Disability process.
