Although every worker in America pays into the Social Security system, it is not an easy undertaking to obtain disability benefits without having a thorough understanding of the way the process works. You, like many others, may feel that this is a benefit that you are due, with the argument that you have pre-paid for this in all of the years you worked and had money deducted from your paychecks.
The steps you have to take to apply are certainly not user-friendly, and in fact, appear rather daunting at first glance. The reward for your hard work at trying to gain approval for disability benefits is that 70% of all first-time applicants find disappointment in learning of their denial of any benefits. And with that letter of denial comes information of the appeal you can file to have your case reviewed, which leads you to believe there is a good chance for a favorable outcome.
Yes, you can file the appeal and wait for an outcome, but more often than not, the results will likely be the same: No benefits are forthcoming. What is readily apparent is that your government is an unintended adversary in this process.
In any adversarial circumstance you find yourself in, it is a good idea to have a trained, knowledgeable advocate who will represent your best interests. And this is no different. Our law firm specializes in representing those who need and deserve Social Security disability benefits in order to make ends meet and provide a sustainable future for themselves.
This is no different from having someone represent your interests due to a personal injury. The arcane and complex requirements that the Social Security Administration has been just too much to deal with when you are sick or injured. There are many aspects of these requirements to consider, such as marriage and divorce, determining your onset date, what your ‘Exertional Level’ is, do you meet the standard for ‘Functional Impairment’, and what ‘Residual Functional Impairment’ you may have. All of these items could play a pivotal role in your ability to receive the benefits that you are seeking.
If you are unable to work, you need help. And we are here to serve you and ensure that you receive every benefit that you are legally entitled too. Our fees are on a contingency basis, which means we are only paid if we are successful in getting you the benefits you deserve. And even then, those fees come from the benefits you receive, so you will not have any out-of-pocket expense for our services.
The team at D’agostino & Associates specializes in helping clients get the benefits they deserve while cutting through the red tape. We cordially invite you to contact us to determine if we can assist you with any aspect of Social Security Disability.
