Social Security Disability is a highly regulated federal program. Most applications are denied on the first try. Because of this, we suggest that you apply when you have been out of work for six months. You cannot collect benefits until a year of disability, but it is best to start the process early.
If you are denied benefits, talk to an experienced lawyer.
Social Security Disability requires a lot of paperwork. Our attorneys can help you organize and present your case — including medical records and work history. We understand the administrative system and how to present information effectively. We can also help you apply for welfare or other benefits at the state level to help you through this period of time.
Each step in the process adds time.
If your application is denied, it can take 3-6 months for an administrative law judge to hear the case. Your lawyer will assure that you and any witnesses (doctor, vocational specialist) are prepared for the hearing and that all documentation is in order. If that appeal is denied, we can continue the appeals process through the federal district court.
If you have been denied Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits, our attorneys are ready to talk to you. The initial consultation is free. Our law firm has provided experienced, caring, responsive service in the Merrimack Valley since 1946.
