Working through a disability application can be a long challenge

Being approved for Social Security Disability benefits is a long process for most people. There are only a handful of conditions that qualify for the Compassionate Allowances program. During the approval process, you are likely going to have a host of appointments. These are aimed at determining whether you meet the requirements for disability. It is imperative that you go to all of these or you risk your case being denied. The more information the Social Security Administration has the better your chance of being approved.  Our office can help you.

We know that complying with the appointment schedule and other facets of your case might not be easy, especially when you are having mobility issues due to your condition. While we can't make these go away, we can work to reduce the red tape that you will have to deal with by working through the legal aspects of your case.

Many people who file for disability have to appeal a decision. The majority of people who apply are denied at first. This can be a blow to you when you desperately need a way to support yourself. If you are denied and decide you are going to appeal, be prepared for another long journey. Appeals come with an entire process of their own.

Make sure that you read everything you get from the Social Security Administration so you know what steps you need to take. Pay close attention to the dates and deadlines on the documentation. Allowing deadlines to pass can mean that you are denied even though your appeal is valid. We are here to help you work through the complex red tape that you will have to deal with.
