Representing Clients Nationwide
American citizens who have become permanently disabled and are no longer capable of earning a living may seek financial assistance through the Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits program. Unfortunately, the Social Security Administration (SSA) regularly denies applications from good candidates who are eligible to receive benefits but get passed over for one reason or another.
One way to make sure that you meet all of the qualifications, and that your eligibility is clearly communicated to the SSA, is to hire a skilled Social Security Disability benefits attorney to help you with your application. The nationwide law firm Chávez Law Group is one law firm that has earned a reputation for increasing the odds of SSDI approval for its clients.
Qualifications for SSDI Benefits
If you’re hurt and unable to work, SSDI benefits can help you and your family by providing a source of income for rent, mortgage, utilities, food, and other costs of living. Generally, you may be eligible to receive these types of benefits if you are expected to be disabled with a physical or mental condition for at least a year, and the injury prevents you from doing any type of work. In addition to meeting disability requirements, you must have earned enough “work credits” by paying FICA taxes during your past employment.
Proving SSDI Eligibility
Even if you are a perfect applicant for these types of benefits, applying for them the right way is crucial in getting the benefit checks coming in. The challenging part is showing the Social Security Administration that you meet all of their criteria.
Filing a Social Security Disability claim can be a very involved process that must include substantial documentation of your injuries and prognosis. Our attorneys can help you provide definitive proof of disability that leaves little room for denial. Although the Social Security Administration maintains a list of disabling conditions, your specific medical condition doesn’t necessarily have to be on that list to qualify. With our help, you can make a case to the SSA as to why your physical or mental condition is in fact preventing you from earning a living.
What to Do if You’re Denied
If your SSDI application is denied, its time to focus on the SSDI appeals process. Our team will share in-depth information on the four levels of appeals possible and work to get your denial turned around. When you hire us to help you, you can expect hard work and dedication as we work to prove you are disabled and defend your right to receive benefits. Although the process can be time-consuming and confusing, we will help you make the best case possible for reconsideration.
Let our nationwide SSDI attorneys help you apply or appeal to improve your chances of getting SSDI benefits coming in. We’ll make sure important deadlines are met and the Social Security Administration gets all of the right evidence of your disability.
