Get Help Pursuing The Social Security Disability Benefits You Deserve

If you are unable to work due to a disability, you may be entitled to Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits through the federal government. These benefits provide a financial safety net for those with a qualifying work history.

Getting Social Security disability (SSD) benefits can be a challenge. A high percentage of initial applications get denied. At Axelson Williamowsky Bender & Fishman P.C., our lawyers can maximize your chances of success by helping you present a strong case for benefits. They can also advise you regarding whether you’re eligible.

Understanding The SSD Process

The SSD process starts with filing an application. Many people choose to do this step themselves, but many get denied. Our attorneys can help you prepare and file a strong application to avoid potential delays and denials.

If you already applied and were denied, don’t despair. You can still turn your case around, provided that you take the right steps within the right time frame. Our lawyers can help you with:

  • Requesting reconsideration of the denial
  • Making your case before an administrative law judge (ALJ)
  • Getting your case reviewed by the Appeals Council
  • Pursuing an appeal in federal court, if necessary

You can rely on our attorneys to gather all the evidence needed to build a persuasive case, including medical records, expert opinions and thorough documentation of your disability. They know what judges are looking for in this regard, and they can use that knowledge to your advantage.

What Counts As A Disability?

There is a common misperception that only those with physical disabilities can qualify for SSD benefits. In fact, psychological and mental conditions can also count as disabilities, provided that they meet certain criteria. Talk to our attorneys about whether your condition qualifies.
