Handling All the Steps to Help You Secure Disability Benefits
Wayne County Social Security Disability lawyer, Robert Paulbeck, has helped many people file their initial Social Security Disability Application and jumped in to protect many clients' best interests after their claims were denied. While a denial is not necessarily a complete dead end, it may be possible to avoid the appeals process all together with the help of an experienced SSDI attorney upfront. Attorney Robert Paulbeck can make sure your claim is filed correctly to increase your chances of securing the benefits you need.
If your claim was denied, he can guide you through the appeals process. You have 60 days to request the Social Security Administration to appeal the denial of your claim and request a disability hearing in front of an Administrative Law Judge. Attorney Robert Paulbeck will work closely with you to prepare you for the hearing by obtaining your medical documentation, write a brief summary explaining to the judge why you should be awarded benefits and prepare you for your hearing testimony.
Differentiating Between SSDI and SSI Claims
SSDI is available for people who have an injury or illness that prohibits them from working for more than one year. The injuries may have been sustained on or off the job, and can include both physical and mental conditions. To qualify for SSDI, you must have been employed at some point.
SSI is available to people who have never been employed or those people who have not worked approximately five out of the last 10 years prior to the onset date of their disability. To qualify, a person must have assets that total less than $2,000 and have a mental or physical condition that prevents him or her from working for more than one year. Regardless of the type of benefit you are seeking, you can rely on us to help guide you through this sometimes complicated process.
