Phoenix Social Security Disability
You pay into Social Security so that its safety net will be there if you ever need it. But what if you become disabled and the Social Security Administration (SSA) denies your application for disability payments? You may find yourself wondering how you will pay medical bills and rent, put food on the table, or even provide for your family.
If this has happened to you, you’re not alone. In fact, the SSA denies the majority of applications, even if the applicant is eligible.
For decades, Morgan & Morgan’s Social Security attorneys have helped clients who were denied disability benefits they were entitled to. If you’ve been denied Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), find out how we can help you by completing a free, no-risk case evaluation form.
Am I Eligible for SSDI?
In order to be eligible for SSDI, you must:
- Earn less than $1,260 a month
- Have a condition that is considered by the SSA as a disabling medical condition, or one that is comparable
- Be unable to do basic work, such as walking or lifting
- Be unable to continue performing your previous work
- Be unable to secure employment in another field or capacity
When you’re dealing with a disability, the last thing you need is a fight with the SSA. Our Phoenix attorneys will take on the bullies so you don’t have to. Contact us today.
What Are My Options After Initial Denial?
Although scary, denial of your application for SSDI is not the end of the road. The SSA provides four levels of appeal: reconsideration, hearing, appeals court, and, finally, federal court. Our compassionate attorneys will help you every step of the way.
Furthermore, if our appeals to the SSA are fruitless, we are not afraid to take your case to federal court. Many law firms are reluctant to enter the courtroom because they don’t have the resources. To avoid it, they’ll settle for less than you deserve. Not us. With more than 700 attorneys and 3,000 support staff, we are ready to put our army to work for you, ensuring that you receive the compensation that you’re entitled to.
In some cases, submitting a new application may be the best way forward. However, whichever option you choose, your experienced Morgan & Morgan attorney will help you navigate the complex SSA system and work tirelessly to obtain the benefits you’re owed.
But act fast, because the SSA only considers appeals that have been filed within 60 days of the original rejection.
