Social Security is designed to help financially protect individuals after a significant illness or disability has left them unable to earn a living.
According to the Social Security Administration, if you are unable to work after an illness or disability, Social Security Disability Insurance pays benefits to you and certain members of your family if you are “insured,” which means that you have worked long enough while paying Social Security taxes to qualify. Supplemental Security Income pays benefits based on financial need.
So what do you do if your application for benefits is denied? Do not panic. Rather than attempt an appeal on your own, call Goldstein, Buckley, Cechman, Rice & Purtz and let our Social Security attorney discuss your case with you. Our firm will explain the process in clear language and take the time to explain the Social Security Administration’s rules and regulations.
It is our goal to help you obtain the benefits you have earned. If you are seeking your benefits, you will not pay any lawyer fees unless you win your request for benefits. Furthermore, federal law limits how much an attorney can collect on Social Security Disability cases. When you hire an attorney, you have a great deal to gain and very little to lose.
