Many people are unaware of the benefits for which they might qualify if they are disabled and unable to work. Also, the process of obtaining Social Security benefits which are rightfully owed for death or disability can be frustrating, lengthy and cumbersome.
At Axelrod & Associates, our Social Security disability lawyers guide clients through the bureaucracy and red tape of the Social Security system to obtain their benefits. This can include such things as assisting in the filing of an application or appeal for benefits, completing paperwork, gathering evidence, obtaining medical records and communicating with physicians in order to obtain medical opinions necessary to help establish disability, and preparing the client for and attending hearings before an Administrative Law Judge, if necessary.
Our lawyers can help you obtain benefits through disability benefit programs such as these:
Social Security Disability (SSD) Benefits: These are benefits available to people who have worked and paid into the system, and have since become unable to work because of illness or disability. SSD benefits are available to anyone who meets the eligibility requirements, regardless of age.
Supplemental Security Income (SSI) Benefits: These are benefits available to people who have not worked the necessary time to be eligible for SSD benefits, but are unable to work because of illness or disability and who meet the income requirement.
SSD Widows and Widowers Benefits: If your spouse was fully insured under the SSD program when he or she died, you may be eligible for survivor’s benefits based on his or her earnings record.
Appeal: If you have been denied social security disability benefits, we will evaluate your case for an appeal.
