Social Security Disability Lawyers Serving Illinois
The Social Security System is intended to provide a safety net to those who find themselves unable to work for themselves or provide for their families. Unfortunately, many are unaware of their rights when they’ve become disabled and may feel they are unable to collect social security benefits. If you have become disabled, it can be difficult to seek assistance and then to overcome the initial rejection that the majority of claimants are dealt when applying for benefits. An experienced social security disability attorney can help you refile and represent your interests when dealing with officials in order to ensure that your claim has the highest chance of approval so that you can receive the benefits that you need.
Who Qualifies for Social Security Disability Insurance?
If you have been severely injured and are no longer able to work or a medical condition has kept you sidelined then you may be able to collect Social Security Disability Insurance, or SSDI. In order to collect this benefit, you must be able to prove that you have worked in the past and are now unable to perform the tasks required of your old job. You must also prove that your disability has prevented you from obtaining any alternative form of work. In addition, the following circumstances may make you eligible for SSDI.
- You meet the Social Security Administration’s qualifications for severe impairment and therefore are unable to obtain or retain employment due to your disability or medical condition.
- You’ve been suffering from your condition for longer than a year or the condition is terminal.
- You have become disabled before the age of 22 and your parents are either deceased or currently receiving Social Security benefits.
- You’ve become disabled shortly following the death of your spouse, which qualifies you as a disabled widow or widower.
My Claim has Been Rejected. What Should I Do? Do You Need a Social Security Disability Lawyer?
Due to the large amount of claims filed each year for Social Security Disability Insurance, the majority are denied even though claimants might actually qualify for benefits. If you have been denied, you may feel discouraged and confused regarding how to proceed from here. It is possible, however, to have your claim reviewed again as part of a process called reconsideration.
