If a disability prevents you from working, you may have the right to seek Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits. You may also be entitled to benefits from your disability is work-related. Unfortunately, the process for obtaining these benefits can be frustrating.
A majority of Social Security applicants are initially denied benefits and left to worry about how they will support their families and pay medical bills. Many injured workers find that their employer will look for ways to stop their benefits if their disability lingers. Hiring a lawyer to represent you can make a significant difference in the outcome of your case.
Each year, millions of Americans file with the Social Security Administration for disability benefits. Most of these claims are denied. Both the process of filing a claim and appealing a denial of benefits can be difficult and daunting. The experienced Social Security attorneys at Larson & Larimer can guide you through these processes, assist you in gathering records and completing necessary forms, and help you obtain the benefits that you deserve.
Our Social Security system is essentially a pay-as-you-go program in which workers pay a mandatory amount of their paychecks into the Social Security System. These Social Security taxes collectively comprise a pool of insurance that is paid out to eligible retirees, disabled individuals, and the families of retired and disabled persons.
Research shows that more than one in four of today’s twenty year olds will become disabled before reaching the age of sixty-seven. If you have become disabled and are unable to work as a result, you may be able to obtain Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). Workers are eligible for SSDI if they have worked for the required period, contributed to the pool by paying their Social Security taxes, and developed a medical condition that satisfies the Social Security definition of “disability” and prevents them from working for more than one year.
Please call us as soon as possible for a free consultation to discuss whether you may be eligible for benefits or if you have been denied benefits. Our attorneys have experience winning appeals for our clients and can help you today.
