Social Security Disability (SSD) is a federal government program providing benefits to people who are disabled and unable to perform substantial gainful employment. While well-intended, there are, unfortunately, many problems with this program, making it difficult for many people to receive the benefits they rightfully deserve. At Rue & Ziffra, we have experienced SSD lawyers that help with disability claims. Our team is prepared to guide you through the application process, or if your initial claim has been denied, we can handle your appeal, fighting with you every step of the way until your claim is accepted.
Applying for Social Security Disability Benefits Can Be Complicated & Time-Consuming. With Legal Guidance, You Can Help Ensure Your Claim Is Approved without Hassle.
The Social Security Administration is a huge bureaucracy that can be daunting to navigate, but that shouldn’t stop you or a loved one from getting the benefits you deserve. Whether filing a disability claim or appealing the denial of a claim, the guidance and representation of an experienced SSD lawyer can prove invaluable to your success. The Social Security Disability attorneys at Rue & Ziffra can provide you with meaningful legal assistance regarding:
- Social Security Disability – SSD Insurance is a benefit earned by people who have worked and paid taxes during their lives that may be obtained if a physical or mental impairment prevents an individual from working for more than a year.
- Supplemental Security Income – Unlike SSD, SSI benefits are paid to individuals with disabilities based on their financial need and not their employment history.
The purpose of Social Security Disability Insurance is to provide for people who cannot work because of an injury or illness. However, obtaining benefits requires much more than filling out a few forms. Statistics show that people who hire a qualified legal representative greatly improve their odds of obtaining SSD Insurance benefits. The Social Security Disability lawyers at Rue & Ziffra not only understand the complex rules that must be followed for SSD claims to be complete and, ultimately, successful, we are local attorneys, living in your community—we may already know your doctors and the Social Security staff who will handle your case.
