Let Our Attorneys Help You Apply For Disability Benefits
We all pay into the federal Social Security system so that we will have access to retirement benefits that we can rely on. Those benefits are fairly easy to claim if you are able to continue working until the standard retirement age. Unfortunately, some people are forced out of the labor market by disabilities that make it impossible to continue working a job. And when that happens, they often find that navigating the Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) process is frustratingly complex and bureaucratic.
If you need to apply for SSDI, the attorneys at DiFruscia Law Offices are here to help you every step of the way, from initial application through all levels of the appeal process. Many clients find that working with an attorney makes the process much smoother, and it may increase the likelihood of a successful outcome.
Why Do Claims Get Denied?
According to the Social Security Administration’s (SSA) own data, nearly two-thirds of SSDI applications are rejected the first time they are submitted. Most claims are denied for one or more of these reasons:
- Applicants omitted important information or made an application error
- Applicants failed to submit compelling supporting evidence, such as medical records demonstrating a clear diagnosis and how their serious injury renders them unable to work
- Applicants did not meet work history requirements outlined by the Social Security Administration (or did not submit correct evidence to show that they met requirements)
These problems can be addressed, but it is often difficult to know how to do so without first having familiarity with the complex SSDI process. Working with a skilled and experienced attorney can be a great help.
What Our Firm Can Do For You
Applications can take many months to work their way through the system. Every claim denial results in lengthy payment delays you may not be able to afford. When you work with our attorneys, we will help you obtain the evidence that will be most compelling to the SSA. We will also help you avoid the kinds of errors and omissions most likely to cause a delay or denial. In short, we will do everything we can to help you submit a compelling and thorough application the first time.
If your application is initially rejected, we are ready to represent you throughout all levels of appeal available to you. What’s more, we take all SSDI cases on a contingency basis. That means you pay nothing upfront and you do not owe any legal fees unless we achieve success in obtaining you benefits.
