If you’re out of work because of a disability, know that the government provides a safety net in your time of need. Social Security benefits are there to be your crutch should you find yourself unable to work due to a debilitating medical condition or mental illness.
Filing a claim:
The first step for obtaining disability benefits is to file a claim with the local Social Security office by calling 1-800-772-1213. This claim is generally not difficult to complete; however, the investigation process can be intense and it will be vital to have an attorney help prepare the claimant for what will follow. For example, the claimant will have to describe his or her disability and provide other supporting documentation such as doctor’s names and addresses, work history, and the date the disability started.
Unfortunately, there are those who attempt to file disability benefits, but are not eligible and are merely trying to deceive the system. As a result, examiners often scrutinize claims very carefully and have difficulty recognizing the justified claims. In order to prepare for this process, it is essential to retain a skilled disability lawyer from the beginning.
