If you develop a medical condition which prevents you from working, you may qualify for social security disability benefits. However, the application process can be complicated and many applicants are initially denied benefits.
An attorney can walk you through the process...
A serious injury or medical condition can prevent you from working and earning the money you need to support yourself.
If you have a total disability, Social Security provides disability benefits which can take the pressure off you and your loved ones.
Unfortunately, a large percentage of claims are denied.

Social Security has very strict requirements for disability benefits and only offers these benefits to people who have a total disability, rather than a partial or short-term disability.
To qualify, you must:
In general, the Social Security Administration (SSA) will ask five basic questions to determine if you have a disability which qualifies for benefits.
The SSA recognizes several special situations which require different criteria. If you are blind, have low vision, or are a veteran, your case may involve a separate process.
It is important to discuss your options fully with an attorney so you know your rights.
Your disability benefits will depend on how much money you earned on average during the years you paid into Social Security. The SSA has a range of tools to help you estimate your benefits.
Other government benefits, such as workers' compensation, public disability benefits, or your pension, may affect your Social Security payments.
Our team at Flickinger Sutterfield & Boulton can help you assess expected disability benefit payments.

There were times I felt they "did enough", but they continued to fight and then actually helped double the outcome when I didn't think it was possible. I couldn't recommend them any more." Jared A.
