Making a living wage that covers your bills and rent or mortgage is difficult when an illness or disability prevents you from working full-time. If you are not able to work full-time because of an illness or disability, you may be eligible for benefits through the Social Security Administration (SSA). The financial assistance you can receive through the Social Security Disability Program will provide you with the financial stability you need to support yourself and your family while you get treatment for your illness or injury.

First Time SSD Applicants
Why Our Attorneys Should Help with Your First SSD Application
The application process for Social Security Disability benefits is not a straightforward process. Around 65 percent of SSD applications are denied by the Social Security Administration, usually due to errors in completing the application or failure to provide all of the necessary documentation. Our attorneys will work with you as you complete your application to give you the best chance of being approved. It is also helpful to remember that if your initial application is denied, 91 percent of denied applications are reconsidered in the appeals process.
Our attorneys understand the main reasons why SSD and SSI applications are denied, and we will help you avoid these mistakes. We highly recommend that you talk to our attorneys before submitting your first application to improve your chance of approval and avoid a lengthy appeals process that will only delay the benefits you need. If your application is not approved, we will help you through the reconsideration and appeals processes.
