A disability alone is not sufficient to qualify you for Social Security benefits. The disability must prevent you from returning to your job or any other employment.
Additionally, in order to be eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), the most common benefit, you must have worked for a certain number of years prior to your disability and contributed to Social Security. However, if you do not have this employment history, you may still be eligible for Supplemental Security Income (SSI).
We also represent people who suffer from mental disorders such as depression and anxiety. These disabilities may stand alone, or they may be paired with a physical disability. For example, someone who is adjusting to life with a back injury may experience depression along the way. We make certain that every medical condition, physical and mental, is accounted for when we pursue Social Security benefits.
When you come to our law firm, you will work closely with a Pennsylvania attorney who has handled cases involving disabilities of all types.
It is not uncommon for us to represent people who have disabilities that resulted from work accidents or accidents caused by someone else’s negligence. In these cases, we may also be able to pursue compensation through a workers’ compensation or personal injury claim as well as social security disability. Our goal is to find every opportunity to get you the benefits you’re entitled to.
One of the first questions people have about Social Security Disability is whether they qualify. In many cases, people apply for benefits and are denied. They assume that the denial of their claim means they are not eligible. That is not necessarily the case.
Whether you are just beginning the application process or you have already had your claim denied, we encourage you to discuss qualifying for Social Security Disability with a Carlisle lawyer at the Law Offices of Stephen J. Hogg. With more than 30 years of experience, we can educate you about whether you are eligible and how you should proceed.
