Applications And Appeals For Your Social Security Disability Benefits
At Denman & Lerner Co., L.P.A., we understand that you deserve the benefits you expect from Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI). However, these benefits can be difficult to claim without the help of a lawyer. If your claim is denied the first time around, do not lose hope; we can either smooth the process from the start or work with your denied claim to seek approval.
With over 47 years of experience, our firm recognizes the obstacles presented when a Social Security claim is filed. We have effectively maneuvered our clients through the process time and again. If you would like the assurance of an experienced Social Security Disability attorney, please contact us for a free consultation.
If you are considering filing for Social Security Disability benefits, you need to meet one of the following requirements to apply:
- Have a severe impairment that will last 12 months or longer, or result in death
- Have a disability that meets one of SSA’s listed impairments
- Be completely unable to work
We advise our clients that the best time to apply for Social Security Disability benefits is six to nine months after they stop working.
How Can A Lawyer Help Your Case?
The attorneys at Denman & Lerner Co., L.P.A., will work to determine a strategy for your case and exactly what must be proven. We will gather the relevant evidence and take the necessary steps to prove your case. We can walk you through the process and discuss the specific tasks your case will need during a complimentary consultation.
Clients should be aware that it can take up to two years from the start of a request until a hearing is held and a decision issued. The hearings are private: They’ll be held in a small conference room and last an hour or so. You will be asked about your education, training, work experience, symptoms, limitations and daily activities.
