In order to qualify for Social Security disability benefits, you must meet the disability requirements as defined by the Social Security Administration (SSA). According to the SSA, an individual is disabled if they are unable to engage in any substantial gainful activity (SGA) because of a physical or mental impairment. What this means is that the claimant must be unable to perform any work of their previous occupation, as well as any other work due to their age, education, and work experience. The disability or impairment must be medically proven by a professional, and must be expected to last for at least 12 months or to result in death.
At The Comerford Law Office, LLC, we will do everything in our power to help you obtain the Social Security Disability Benefits (SSDI) that you need to live comfortable. This includes:
Working with a Social Security lawyer is your best chance of being approved initially. That being said, the earlier you contact an attorney, the better. Even if you are in the initial stages of filling out the claim, we recommend consulting with a lawyer. This is because an experienced Social Security lawyer knows exactly what is necessary to obtain a successful outcome, and can guide you on how to fill out the application in the most advantageous way possible. They can also help you avoid common application errors that result in denial.
If you have already been denied your Social Security benefits, it is definitely time to hire an attorney. In addition to increasing your chances of a successful appeal, a Social Security disability lawyer can move your claim through the appeals process faster than if you were to attempt the process on your own. This is important for individuals with serious medical conditions and those whose financial situations are particularly dire.
