Social Security Disability Benefits
Social Security Disability (SSD) is a program that provides benefits for disabled workers who have held a job, or a series of jobs subject to the Social Security system, for a required period of time (generally five out of the last 10 years). You must have paid FICA taxes to be eligible for SSD benefits. Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a form of disability for people with limited assets who are disabled.
If you are trying to obtain SSD benefits, you should know that most claims are denied at the initial level. Once you are denied, you can file a Request for Reconsideration, at which time it is particularly beneficial to have legal representation. At The Law Offices of Timothy D. Welborn, PA, we can prepare and file all necessary documents for you at each stage of the process. We’ll also gather medical information and other evidence, request additional examination, prepare you for the hearing, represent you during the hearing and ensure correct calculations of any awarded benefits. Our goal is to get a fair decision made as quickly as possible for you.
If you or a loved one has been denied Social Security or Disability benefits, contact us for a free initial consultation.
