Applying for Social Security Disability benefits can be a frustrating task which can end with a denial of your claim. If your initial Social Security Disability or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) claim has been denied, or if you’re preparing to file a Social Security Disability claim, contact an attorney with Social Security law experience.
At Clements, Taylor, Butkovich & Cohen, L.P.A., Co., our knowledgeable Social Security Disability and SSI lawyers can guide you through the complexities of Social Security law to assist in filing your appeal and receiving appropriate disability benefits. Our disability attorneys are familiar with the local Social Security Administration officials, the office of hearings and appeals and with members of the U.S. District Court who have authority over Social Security Disability matters.
Knowing the complexities of the Social Security system is not an easy task. Given the wide scope of Social Security, such complexity is understandable. In 2017 alone, the U.S. government paid out Social Security benefits to about 62 million people.
It is important to bear in mind that Social Security, in general, was not intended to be a person’s sole source of income after retirement. It was meant to replace a portion of earnings. This percentage is based on what a person earned throughout their working career. The allocation is also based on what year they choose to begin receiving benefits — a person starting at age 75 will receive a higher percentage than a person starting Social Security income at age 68.
And while the disability benefits from Social Security have a different set of considerations, these benefits are related. These disability benefits are pulling from the same pool. Some of the same concerns and questions will face a 70-year-old retiree as well as a 50-year-old person who has sustained career-ending (or career-pausing) injuries and/or medical conditions.
Our Social Security Disability and SSI attorneys assist clients at every stage of the disability claim process, including:
- Developing initial filings
- Preparing an impairment list and medical documentation
- Submitting requests for reconsideration and/or hearings before the appointed administrative law judge
- Managing all Social Security Disability appeals work
