We can handle all the paper work for our clients, attend to costs and providing medical records to the Social Security Administration, and we will work to get benefits awarded as soon as possible rather than drag out cases to earn more fees.

Disability eligibility is based on credits, which primarily depend on your age at the time you become disabled. For example, if you are 31 to 42 years of age, you will need 20 credits to be eligible. Credits must be earned within a certain amount of time. Older workers may need more than 20 credits (earned in the past 10 years) to qualify.

The Social Security "Blue Book" is a manual that contains information for Social Security professionals about the specific criteria under which claimants suffering from a disabling condition can qualify for Social Security Disability benefits.

According to the Social Security website, applications for disability are at record levels. More than 70 percent of initial applications are turned down, while on appeal, a majority of those cases qualify for benefits.

Although a person is not required to hire an attorney to represent them at a hearing, an experienced attorney has the unique skills and resources that are needed to be able to successfully cross-examine the Vocational Expert at a hearing.

Like many government offices, the Social Security Administration is often backlogged, and can take a while to approve your benefits, often taking 6 months to a year. You’re owed backlogged benefits for this time, and a disability attorney can help you get that backpay.

Good news for the more senior community is that Social Security doesn't commonly expect individuals in their fifties to be able to transfer work skills and learn a new job as easily as a younger person might, especially for older people without much formal education.

Do you know how exactly the government defines “disability”? Essentially, you are considered “disabled” if you cannot work as you did before, you cannot adjust to other different types of work because of your disability, and/or your disability is expected to last for at least one year or to result in your eventual death.

You can return to work for a “trial” period of seven months without losing your SSDI benefits, allowing you to see if you can return to work permanently. Your benefits will not be terminated because you tried to go back to work if you cannot maintain gainful employment.
