Have you spent most of your life working hard and contributing to the Social Security System?
Do you now find yourself disabled and unable to work?
Perhaps you think you might be entitled to these benefits but have no idea how to get started.
Perhaps you have already applied for Social Security Disability benefits but your claim has been denied despite your debilitating condition.
Relax - if you fit into any of these categories - we can help! If you are not sure if you even qualify for these benefits - we can help!
Like most Administrative Programs, the Social Security Administration is a cumbersome place with lots of paperwork - and the system requires significant knowledge of the law. We understand that you have spent your career focusing on your work and probably never planned or thought you would be in your current situation. We understand how frustrating it can all be. Let us help!
Social Security Disability Benefits are payable to people who have worked and contributed to the system but are now unable to work due to a disability. If you have been or are likely to be out of work for at least one year due to a disability you may be eligible for Social Security Disability Benefits. Even if you are already receiving other benefits such as Workers’ Compensation or No-Fault - you may still be entitled to Social Security Disability.
Even if you do not qualify for Social Security Disability (SSD) you may still be eligible for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) if you are in financial need. Our Social Security Attorneys can explain the different programs available to you and will help you apply for all the benefits that suit your situation.
We encourage anyone who thinks they might be entitled to Social Security Disability Benefits(SSD) or Supplemental Security income (SSI) to contact our office as early as possible in the disability. We strongly encourage you to contact us before making an application on your own. Preparing the necessary documentation and supporting paperwork can be the difference between an initial approval or denial of the claim, and we can help you put the best evidence in the first time.
Many claims are initially rejected which prompts a hearing where evidence can be presented and witnesses can testify. Having a Social Security Attorney by your side in this process is crucial. Having a Social Security Lawyer that already knows your case from its initial filing is even better!
We understand that you need assistance to get through this process with the best possible result. If you are looking for an Albany Social Security Lawyer, give us a call today so we can help! All Social Security claims are accepted on a contingency fee basis so we only get paid if we recover money for you!
