Guiding People Through The Social Security Disability (SSD) Process
If you can’t work due to an injury, illness or another disabling condition, you may be eligible to receive Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits. In fact, if you have worked recently, you have probably paid into the Social Security system. It is not easy to be approved for these benefits, however. The Social Security Administration (SSA) looks carefully at every disability application. In fact, the SSA denies a majority of initial applications.
Many times, the SSA denies these claims because the applicants fail to provide enough evidence. If your SSD claim has been denied, or if you are thinking about filing for SSD, having a lawyer on your side can be very helpful. We are the lawyers of Robinson Salyers, PLLC, in Shelbyville and Frankfort. We help disabled workers recover the SSD benefits they are entitled to.
As part of our practice, we help workers who have suffered disabling injuries on the job recover workers’ compensation benefits in addition to SSD benefits.
How Do You Prove That You Are Eligible For SSD?
In order to recover SSD benefits, you will need to show the following:
- That you cannot do the work you once did and that your current medical condition prevents you from doing different work
- Your disabling condition prevents you from working
- Your disabling condition has lasted for one year or is expected to last for one year or longer or lead to your death
- You need to have worked long enough over a certain period of time
In short, the SSA needs a lot of proof before it will approve a disability claim. This is where we come in. Our lawyers will work with your medical providers to build a strong case. Our lawyers understand the Social Security appeals process and will do everything possible to help you get the benefits you need.
