Social Security Disability

Social Security Disability

No one expects that they will become disabled.  But if it happens to you, it is often a confusing and scary process.  We are here to help you through this process.

If you have a physical and/or mental health condition that keeps you from working or is expected to keep you from working at any job for at least 12 months, you may be eligible for Social Security disability and/or Supplemental Security Income monthly benefits.  You may also be entitled to collect back due disability payments during the period of time you have been out of work.

If you are even considering filing for disability benefits, it is important for you to understand Social Security regulations and procedures.  The Social Security Administration imposes certain time periods for filing claims before your disability credits expire as well as appealing claims after you receive an unfavorable decision.  When you call us, we can discuss these and other factors specific to your situation.  We can assist you with applying for disability benefits, completing application forms, appealing unfavorable decisions, appearing before a Judge at your hearing, and other matters regarding your claim.  We represent disabled individuals at the initial and appeal levels.  There is no charge for a consultation.
