Montgomery County, PA Disability (SSDI) Lawyer
Applications for need-based aid are complicated, and that’s on purpose. Examiners need as much information as possible to make informed decisions about the health and financial status of applicants so they can make sure the money goes to the right people. If you’re not disabled, you should not receive Social Security Disability benefits. But, what if you are? What if you need government assistance just to pay rent because your injury or illness keeps you from working? Making sure that application is spotless, or that your appeal is as strong as it can be if you’ve been previously denied, is vital.
Call Young, Marr, Mallis & Associates today at 1 (609) 755-3115 in New Jersey or (215) 701-6519 in Pennsylvania for a free consultation to discuss your disability situation and what we can do to help. The call is always private and we’ll never charge you a fee for our services unless we recover benefits on your behalf. There’s no risk to you in choosing us to represent your interests.
Elements of a Successful Claim for Benefits
As long as you’ve worked enough through your lifetime to earn sufficient credits with the Social Security Administration, you’re entitled to receive disability benefits when you qualify medically. This is not an entitlement program or a free handout. This is a system you’ve already paid into through your tax dollars.
You can also become eligible if you’re the dependent child of a person who is legally disabled. Regardless of the circumstances, the details that make a claim more likely to be approved in the eyes of federal investigators remain the same:
- Clarity of Medical Records – information provided by your doctors must state the nature of your injury or illness, and most importantly, how that injury affects your functional capacity. If the physical impairment doesn’t prevent you from completing significant life tasks, the Social Security Administration will deny your application.
- Proof of Income Eligibility – if you’re able to earn a living while still unable to work, you don’t need government assistance. Bank statements, along with evidence of your monthly income, may be necessary for investigators to determine your available finances.
- Work With Our Attorneys – statistically speaking you have a better chance of obtaining SSD benefits with an experienced attorney at your side, than without. At our law firm, we handle all the paperwork so you don’t to. We’ll meet the important filing deadlines and communicate with the federal government on your behalf so your application receives the fairest look possible.
What to Do if Your Disability Application Was Denied
The old lawyer joke goes that a conviction is the basis for a great appeal. Investigators working with the federal government deny more than half of all initial claims for disability benefits because of technical errors. That means mistakes in paperwork: missing forms, incomplete medical records, unanswered questions. If there’s a problem with your original application, it’s probably because your doctor didn’t provide comprehensive records of your treatment or you missed a line on one of the forms. That’s okay. When you hire our law firm to go after the SSD benefits you deserve, we provide a number of services:
- Review All Application Materials – A technical error won’t stop your appeal with us completing the documents. We have more than 25 years of combined experience in this area of law. We’ll go over every piece of paper with a keen eye to eliminate the mistakes that could lead to a denial.
- Communication with your Doctors – How your injury or illness impacts your functional capacity is the single greatest determiner of your eligibility for benefits. Our legal team stays in contact with your doctors to obtain medical documentation that shows how much pain you’re in, and how long they expect your condition to last.
- Courtesy and Respect at All Times – We believe in treating every client who walks into our offices with dignity and respect. You’re not going after undeserved money. These are benefits you’ve worked all your life to be able to access, and now you desperately need them.
