Social Security Disability benefits are payments and Medicare insurance available to individuals who meet the Administration’s guidelines under Title II of the Social Security Act. They are different from Social Security Retirement benefits. If you have earned a sufficient number of credits within the 10 years before becoming disabled, and are unable to perform your past work and other work at the relevant exertional and skill levels, you can be awarded these benefits. In order to win your claim for benefits, you must successfully navigate the process from initial claim, through the state Disability Determination Section reviews, Administrative Law Judge hearing and appeals if necessary. To win, you must provide medical records and opinions proving disability. SSA and their state contractors look for evidence that your medical conditions are not severe or disabling, and call your credibility into question. We assist our clients by obtaining your medical, psychological, school and employment records to support your claim. We work with your doctors and/or examiners and specialists to obtain the professional opinions needed to satisfy the regulations. We go to your hearing with you, and question you and any other witnesses and experts testifying to support or refute your claim. If your claim is denied, we will handle your appeals. There is no cost or obligation to meet with you and evaluate your disability claim. Call us at (731) 660-5691 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
