Social Security Disability Lawyer in the Dayton, TN Area
You may be eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits if you paid into the system and now have a major occupational disease or devastating accident that prevents you from working — or if you are not likely to recover at all. Many people with major medical issues, however, are turned down which is why you need the assistance of an experienced Dayton Social Security Disability Attorney at the Elizabeth Greer Adams Law Group on your side to assist you.
What is Social Security Disability?
The Social Security Disability program is governed by the Federal Social Security Act. It offers disability payments and other privileges to people who are unable to work due to a disability. Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits might include cash income and medical care.
If you’ve been permanently incapacitated in an accident or are suffering from a crippling physical or mental condition, you may be entitled to benefits or Supplemental Security Income (SSI). You must meet eligibility requirements, and the benefits you receive are determined by your employment history, financial condition, and medical requirements. Since there are time constraints for filing a claim, it’s critical to move fast.
Understanding the Basics
The majority of individuals are aware that there are requirements for receiving Social Security benefits. To be qualified, you must have enough relevant work experience to meet the Federal Social Security standards. There is a formula that is utilized to evaluate your eligibility for Social Security Disability payments.
One crucial need is that you must be incapacitated by a condition that will keep you from working for a year or more. Since the system might take a long time to process your application, you should start the procedure as soon as you know the level of your disability. The sooner you get guidance from a skilled legal professional, the better your chances are for a successful outcome. Our firm is here to help.
To process your eligibility claim, the Social Security Administration will need the following information in addition to your completed application.
- Social Security Number
- A copy of your birth certificate
- Physicians’ and other healthcare professionals’ names, addresses, and phone numbers
- Your medicine prescriptions’ names and dosages
- Your healthcare providers’ medical records and laboratory test results
- An overview of your past employment and the tasks you did
a copy of your latest federal tax return or W2 form
Social Security disability claimants who have been accepted for SSD insurance coverage must wait five months before receiving payments from the department.
Applying for Social Security Disability Benefits
The internet is the most convenient way to apply for Social Security Disability Benefits. www.ssa.gov, the Social Security Administration’s website, is incredibly thorough. Review the Adult Disability Starter Kit as your first step. This package provides answers to frequently asked questions about how to apply for benefits and includes a worksheet that outlines the information you’ll need to get started. However, it is always wise to keep an attorney on your side.
After you’ve acquired all of the essential information, you may apply online by filling out the application. In addition, you must complete an online disability report that contains information about your condition, treatment, health care providers, and current medicines.
What Happens if My Application is Turned Down?
The Social Security Administration rejects 90% of all first petitions for social security disability benefits. Initial applications are assessed by Social Security staff rather than by a Social Security judge. After receiving a rejection of benefits, an applicant has 60 days to appeal the decision. This should be done in writing, and the applicant must seek a Social Security judge’s hearing. If your benefits application has been refused, you should consult with our attorney about having them represent you in your appeal. Over 60% of applicants who hire an attorney to represent them in their appeal are officially approved for social security disability benefits.
