Get The Social Security Disability Benefits You Deserve
If a disability prevents you from returning to work for twelve months or more, you may be entitled to receive Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). The claims process is complex and mistakes are easy to make and frustrating. Hedberg & Boulton, P.C., can help with the initial application, the appeal process and answer any questions you may have.
How You Can Qualify For Social Security Disability Benefits
The Social Security Administration (SSA) oversees the SSD program and makes determinations regarding eligibility to receive SSDI. Our Iowa firm understands that the claims process can seem like a struggle for many people. We have helped many clients just like you understand the SSD program and obtain the benefits they deserve. Eligibility qualifications for SSD include the following:
- You must have paid Social Security payroll taxes over a specific time frame.
- You must prove that a physical or mental disability prevents you from performing “substantial gainful activity” or that the disability could result in death.
- You must meet the SSA’s definition of “disabled.”
What You Can Do If Insurance Denied Your Claim
Our attorneys have over 100 combined years of legal experience. Through the years, we have come to understand the SSA system and its methods. The vast majority of SSD claimants are initially denied. Rather than reapplying, you should move ahead to the appeals process. Our firm can represent you in the appeals process, which includes an administrative hearing before an ALJ (administrative law judge).
Put Your Future In Safe Hands
Whether you were injured at work and are pursuing a workers’ comp claim in addition to your SSD benefits, your disability is the result of a personal injury or whether your disability is unrelated to either, our lawyers are here for you.
