Fight for your right to Social Security Disability benefits


Social Security Disability benefits are a lifeline for many Pennsylvania families. Disabled adults and children count on this income to help meet all the financial obligations they have while they are unable to work. For many people SSD benefits are one of the sole ways that they support themselves. Without this income, some people literally cannot afford basic necessities including housing or food.

However, SSD benefits can be difficult to obtain. People often need to provide specific documentation with their application in order to get approval for benefits from the Social Security Administration. Often, these initial applications can be denied by the SSA for a variety of reasons.

Our firm understands that a denial by the SSA does not mean that a person does not need SSD benefits, or even that they don't qualify for them. Many Pennsylvania residents might not understand that they are entitled to appeal an initial denial from the SSA. This appeal process can be complicated and has strict timelines that must be followed. For example, you only have 60 days to file an appeal after being denied SSD benefits by the SSA.

Our law firm understands these complexities and can help you successfully file your SSD appeal. We can help you understand the supporting documentation -- including medical records, treatment records and more -- that is necessary to show the SSA that you qualify for benefits. Further, we can help you understand what to expect during the appeals hearing so that you are prepared to answer any questions that the judge might ask.

We have eight offices throughout the state of Pennsylvania in order to be able to conveniently serve you. Without our help, you can be prepared for an appeals hearing and may see success. In some situations, you may even qualify for retroactive benefits to compensate you for time you have lost. For more information on how our firm can help you appeal a denial, please see our SSD appeals page.
