Social Security Disability Attorneys in Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania
Legal Help With Social Security Disability Claims and Appeals
If you become disabled before you reach retirement age, you may be entitled to Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits. However, many factors must be considered before you are determined qualified for these benefits. The most important consideration is whether your medical condition qualifies as a “disability” under the Social Security rules and regulations.
Examples of qualifying disabilities may include back injuries, heart disease, vision or hearing loss, asthma, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, mental disorders, skin disorders, liver disease, kidney disease, cancer, and bone marrow failure. A disability should be serious enough to keep you from working for at least a year. Your disability may be a result of an injury, or it may stem from an illness or chronic condition. Two or more partial disabilities may make you eligible for benefits. A review of your work history, during which you paid into the Social Security system, is also part of the process of a claim for benefits in most cases.
When Obstacles Get in the Way of Your Rightful SSD Benefits
Often, even if you do everything correctly, you may still be denied benefits. The Social Security Administration (SSA) is a sizable government agency, and it is not uncommon to experience denials and delays. If you are denied, you have limited time to file an appeal. You should contact the Law Office of Shabbick & Stehle immediately.
