SOCIAL SECURITY DISABILITY

Social Security disability benefits are available to individuals who are unable to work due to health-related reasons.  Many people file for disability because they are unable to perform their usual occupation or the most recent job that they have had; however, for most individuals, to be found disabled under Social Security’s rules, they must be found to be incapable of performing any kind of work that is available in the general economy.  It doesn’t matter if the job isn’t available in your town or county.  Social Security defines a disability as an inability to perform any type of full-time, everyday work.

Simplifying the Process

Many people are perfectly capable of filing a claim on their own, and may be successful, but statistically people that have the assistance of an attorney stand a better chance of being awarded than those that go at it on their own.  This is particularly true once you get to filing a request for a hearing.  Having an experienced attorney by your side when you appear before a judge can give you the best chance for success.

"I can't afford a lawyer!"

Not true.  Disability attorneys work on a contingency basis, meaning that the attorney doesn't get paid unless you do.  Social Security determines the payment that will be made to any and all attorneys (it's generally 25% of the back pay), and SSA actually makes the payment directly to the attorney for most people that are approved for benefits.
