What is Social Security Disability?
Social Security Disability (SSD) is a government program intended to provide a steady income and other benefits to people who are disabled and cannot work.
You may also be eligible for Supplemental Security Income (SSI), financial assistance for individuals who have been permanently disabled in an accident or who otherwise suffer from a disabling physical or mental condition. SSI benefits depend on your medical needs, work history, and financial circumstances.
Do I Need An Attorney?
Navigating the government’s system of benefits can be a confusing, tricky process. It doesn’t have to be overwhelming, however, and a Pennsylvania disability attorney will be able to help you make sense of the process and get the best possible outcome.
If you haven’t applied, or if you applied and were denied, the Law Office of Justin P. Miller may be able to help. There is no charge to speak to a Pennsylvania disability attorney. Contact the Law Office of Justin P. Miller for a free, no-obligation consultation.
If you have been diagnosed with a physical disability or mental health disorder and cannot work full-time, and the condition has lasted, or is expected to last, for at least one year, you may be eligible for Social Security Disability benefits.
Was Your Social Security Disability Claim Denied?
Many Social Security disability applications are denied. Even qualified applicants are often denied. If you applied for Social Security Disability benefits and were denied, you can appeal that decision, but you must act quickly!
Sixty Days to Appeal
You only have a limited amount of time – 60 days – to appeal a denial of benefits. If you do not file your appeal in time, you must start the process all over again.
How Does My Attorney Get Paid?
One of the great things about hiring an attorney for your Social Security Disability case is that you do not have to pay him – the government does! If your claim is successful, your attorney will submit a claim for his fee. In this way, your attorney has a strong incentive to work as hard as possible to get you the best award he can. The more you get, the better he gets paid.
With a few exceptions, this will typically be 25% of back benefits owed, or $6,000, whichever is lower. You and your attorney will work this out at your first meeting with the attorney.
