Addressing Common Concerns about Disability Programs

Like most government programs, the SSD program is highly complex, and can be very confusing. It is likely that you have questions about some parts of the process and whether you qualify for benefits. Our lawyers are prepared and knowledgeable. They will sit down with you and explain the rules, procedures, ​and requirements for disability. Some of the more common questions we are asked include:

What if My Claim Was Denied?

Claim denials are extremely common. It is imperative you come see us if your claim is denied. We can evaluate your situation and help you file an appeal. Come to us soon, however, because an appeal must be filed within 60 days of rejection of the initial claim.

What if I Have Not Worked Enough to Qualify for SSD?

Those who have not paid enough into the system, or who are minors may apply for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) rather than SSD.

How Long Will this Process Take?

We don't want to mislead you. An appeal is not an overnight process. Some appeals can take upwards of a year before a hearing notice is issued. Unfortunately, the time in which a matter is set for hearing is out of our control. However, during the appeal period leading up to your hearing, we take a very aggressive approach in acquiring the documentation we need to provide you with the best possible representation we can give you. So while it may feel like a lifetime, know that we never stop working on your case.


Can I Work?

If your doctor clears you to work, then our lawyers will most likely say yes, try to work. If you can get a job and keep it, you will probably make more than what SSD provides. If you try to work but cannot, then it shows that you are truly disabled, which strengthens your claim. ​

Is My Condition Considered a Disability?

The Social Security Administration keeps a list of qualifying conditions, but you can still receive benefits even if yours is not on the list. Remember, the key is whether your illness or injury prevents you from working full time or forces you to work a lower-paying job than you had prior to the disability.
