If you have a long term disability that keeps you from working, it may benefit you to file a Social Security Disability claim.
Less than 1/3 of Social Security Disability Claims are approved when they are originally filed. If you have been recently denied, consider appealing with the help of an experienced law firm to navigate the legal issues of disability claims.
If you’ve worked in the past, you’ve probably seen part of your paychecks taken to pay the Social Security tax. This provides a safety net for those who are unable to work and are eligible to receive Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits.
The Supplemental Security Income payments may also be available to disabled persons at lower income levels.
You’ll need to gather the documents to present to the Social Security Administration. These include your birth certificate, proof of citizenship or lawful residence, tax returns, and medical evidence.
It’s important to make your claim as soon as possible because claims can take up to five months to be processed. Even then, most claims are denied. Don’t give up hope, because a disability attorney can help you reverse the verdict. Our lawyer directory can help you find a qualified attorney to take your case.
Michigan law plays a role in the social security disability process, so ensure your disability attorney and law firm practice areas of personal injury.
If you qualify for Social Security Disability benefits or supplemental security income, you are also likely eligible for workers’ compensation. However, you may be required to make some repayments to the social security from workers’ comp payments.
Social Security was made to help people who can’t work, but sometimes it can take experts in Social Security disability law to leverage the benefits. Our law office in Detroit, Michigan can help you fight for compensation, and it starts with a free case evaluation.
