Get help finding the Right Social Security Lawyer for your case
Social security is a government system designed to financially assist those who used to work but can no longer due to retirement, disability, or becoming widowed. A percentage of the income of all workers goes to social security taxes, which in turn pays benefits to those that are disabled or retired. Social security disability pertains to those benefits paid to individuals who can no longer work because of a mental or physical disability.
If the disability prevents the individual from doing the work they used to do or learning new work, and is expected to last longer than one year, the individual may be eligible for social security disability benefits. Medical conditions that cause the disability can include paralysis, blindness, deafness, cancer, a stroke, Parkinson's disease, HIV, heart disease, neurological problems, etc.
Just because an individual that used to work becomes disabled and can no longer work, does not automatically entitle them to claiming social security disability benefits. Many social security disability applications are denied or become stuck in a backlog, preventing the individual from ever receiving benefits. Over two-thirds of applications are typically rejected across the nation. This can leave the disabled unfairly financially burdened and unable to take care of themselves or their families.
A social security disability lawyer can help you get the benefits you deserve if your application has been denied or gets stuck in backlog. An attorney can appeal the rejection and fight to get your benefits approved. For the mentally or physically disabled, social security benefits can be essential in order to live, so seeking legal assistance is highly recommended.
