If you have become disabled for a prolonged period of time, my law office may be able to help you.
The Social Security Disability Insurance program, provides income for disabled workers (generally speaking up to $2,642.00 per month) that meet certain criteria. Among other factors, your disability must be expected to last 12 months or longer. You must be unable to perform any type of work because of your disability. You must have worked and paid FICA taxes for five out of the last ten years before you became disabled.
Unfortunately, in many cases it is not easy to successfully obtain Social Security Disability Benefits. Proving the validity of your medical claim is often a very difficult battle and it may be necessary to obtain a Hearing and bring your case before an Administrative Law Judge.
In addition to having a law degree I also have a substantial medical background.
(Ten years practicing Podiatric Medicine and Surgery before becoming a lawyer) which enables me to understand and advocate the difficult medical issues that may arise in a disability hearing.
Please call me or send me an email to discuss how I can help you with your Social Security Disability claim. The initial consultation for Social Security Disability is free.
