Social Security Disability benefits may take years to receive

SSD Claims arrow

When you get injured or find out that you are disabled, there are a lot of thoughts that go through your mind. If you are unable to work because of the injury, illness or disability, your thoughts might turn to paying your bills. There are a variety of medical conditions that might make you eligible to receive Social Security Disability benefits. These benefits, however, aren’t usually a quick way to get money coming into your home.

SSD benefit applications are often denied on the initial review. A denial of your initial application means that you have the option to appeal the decision. That can mean having to gather up evidence and submit an appeal. We can help you out with the appeal, as well as an initial application if you haven’t yet filed one.

It is important to note that not just any injury, illness or disability will qualify you for SSD. In order to be eligible for benefits, you have to prove that you can’t work. That means that you are physically unable to do your job, and you are also unable to do other jobs. Back injuries, mental disabilities, cancer and migraines are some of the conditions that may qualify for disability payments if they are severe enough.

We know that you don’t want to have to go through a bunch of legal red tape to get the SSD payments you need. We can help you to work through your initial application. If that is denied — as most are — we can help you to appeal the decision.
