When you cannot work full time due to an illness or disability, it is very difficult to make ends meet by paying off bills or keeping up with your mortgage. However, you may be eligible to receive benefits from the Social Security Administration (SSA) if you cannot work 40 hours per week due to an illness or injury. These benefits obtained through the Social Security Disability Program will provide you and your family with financial assistance so you can recover from your injury or illness.
If you are too ill or disabled to work full time in Rockford, IL, our attorneys at Good Law Group can help you get Social Security Disability (SSD) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits. With over 30 years of legal experience, our disability attorneys will help you obtain the benefits you are entitled to by proving your case for disability assistance. Our caring and knowledgeable attorneys will help you through every step of the process to obtain your benefits including submitting your SSD application and representing you through the appeals process.
We offer a free case evaluation when you call our disability attorneys regarding your eligibility for SSD benefits. Give us a call at (815) 965-9797 or submit a contact form to talk to our attorneys in Rockford, IL. You will not have any out of pocket costs or fees unless we obtain SSD or SSI benefits for you.

First Time SSD Applicants
Let Our Disability Lawyers Help with Your SSD Application
Applying for Social Security Disability benefits is a complicated process which is even more difficult as you deal with an injury or illness. The threat of being denied is also stressful when you are concerned about providing for your family. Your application is likely to get denied unless you fill out the application correctly and provide all the necessary documentation. Approximately 65 percent of SSD applications are denied by the Social Security Administration and 91 percent of these applications are put into the appeals process for reconsideration.
You can greatly increase your chance of getting approved for SSD benefits the first time by completing your application correctly and providing all necessary documentation. The reconsideration and appeals process is a lengthy process that will delay receipt of the benefits that you and your family need. Our attorneys can improve your chance of having your application accepted as we know the main reasons why the Social Security Administration denies these applications. This is why we recommend talking to our social security disability attorneys before you submit your SSD application for the first time.
We can help you through the following to obtain your SSD or SSI benefits:
- First time application: Nearly two-thirds of SSD applications are denied due to incorrect information or the failure to provide the right supplemental documentation. Our attorneys will make sure your application is filled out correctly and completely and accompanied with the proper documentation to improve your chances of approval.
- Reconsideration: Our attorneys can file a notice of intent to appeal to request reconsideration if your application is denied. We will also accompany you when meeting with the disability reconsideration review officer.
- Hearing: Our attorneys will attend hearings for your SSD benefits and advocate on your behalf to the Administrative Law Judge (ALJ).
- Appeals: Our attorneys can file an appeal to have your case heard before the Appeals Council and represent you during the appeal.
- Federal appeal: If your case is denied or not heard by the Appeals Council, we can represent you through the complicated Federal appeals process.
