Do You Need Help Securing Disability Benefits?
If you are filing a Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) claim, you need experienced and hardworking attorneys who are extremely knowledgeable about the Social Security Disability filing process. Our Social Security Disability lawyers pursue claims for both disabled adults and disabled children, or family members of the disabled person.
In addition, establishing the validity of your claim can be time-consuming. It is essential that the medical professionals associated with your case are supportive during the process, and that they provide the necessary documentation to assist you in validating your claim. Wesley, McGrail & Wesley will be able to solicit and assist with the vital cooperation and support you will need from your medical providers, as well as diligently pursue your claim.
Although there are significant differences between the SSDI and SSI programs in terms of both the purposes and eligibility requirements, both programs require the claimant to meet a statutory definition of disability. In short, the applicant must be able to prove that he or she has a medically determinable inability to do any substantial gainful activity for a sustained period of time.
What To Do After A Disability Application Is Denied
If one receives a denial of eligibility for Social Security Disability, there is an appeals process that person must go through. If it has been decided that you are not eligible for Social Security Disability benefits, you have 60 days from the date of the denial letter to request an appeal.
There are four levels of appeal in most states, including:
- Hearing by an Administrative Law Judge
- Review by the Appeals Council
- Federal court complaint
If you are faced with a Social Security Disability problem or have questions about your Social Security Disability claim, or if you are faced with a denial, you need sound legal advice from a law firm that knows and understands all aspects of the Social Security Disability laws.
