Entitled to Social Security Disability? We Understand Your Position & We're Here to Correct It

Entitled to Social Security Disability?

Social Security Disability Attorney in Atlanta

Not everyone who is disabled is necessarily eligible to receive Social Security disability benefits. Unfortunately, due to the complexity of the government, oftentimes people who do meet the qualifications are denied SSD benefits. If this sounds familiar to you, or if you have a loved one who has been unjustly denied benefits, an Atlanta Social Security disability attorney can help to determine the problem and offer solutions. The basic qualifications for Social Security disability benefits are that you have worked in jobs that are covered by Social Security and you have been paying into the system. This is determined by a "work credit" calculation. You also must have a medical condition that qualifies under the definition of disabled as generally described here:

  • You are not able to do the work you did before your disability
  • It is determined by the SSA that your medical condition prevents you from doing other types of work
  • Your disability is expected to last 12 months or longer, or result in death

Short-term disabilities are not covered by Social Security disability. If this seems complex, we understand. We have been working in this field for over 40 years and we can provide valuable assistance in preparing your application or assisting you with an appeal.

Social Security Disability Attorney Serving Atlanta

For over our four decades of practice in this area of the law, we have helped thousands to obtain their benefits. Many were hopeless that they would receive them, but they felt this was unjust. The SSA receives far more applications today than at any time in its history. Adjustments have been made to the SSD process in an effort to streamline it, but it can still be quite slow and difficult. We can help.

Contact an Atlanta Social Security disability lawyer at our firm if you are having trouble with, or wish to avoid trouble obtaining your earned benefits.
