Social Security Disability
If you have a physical or mental disability that prevents you from working, you may be entitled to Social Security Disability benefits. In any Social Security Disability case, documentation is the key. It is important to be able to show the Social Security Administration medical records that reveal why your doctors feel you are limited physically or mentally.
The initial application for Social Security Disability benefits can be done on your own. In fact, we would encourage you to do the initial application on your own. If you are one of the lucky ones to be approved based on the initial application, you will save on attorney’s fees if you do it yourself. You can apply online at www.ssa.gov/applyfordisability.
If your initial application for Social Security Disability benefits is denied, you may want to seek an attorney at that time.
