The Social Security disability process isn't straightforward

When Pennsylvania residents find themselves suddenly disabled, it can be extremely difficult. When an individual has spent the person's entire life working suddenly being unable to hold a job can be jarring. People need to adjust their expectations for their future and for their present. But it can be emotionally and physically difficult to come to terms with this new reality.

When the dust settles, individuals need to look for a source of income separate from their previous employment. When individuals are unable to work, they may be unable to meet their financial obligations. There are safety nets in place in order to avoid financial destitution in these situations. More specifically, Social Security Disability benefits may be available to certain individuals.

SSD benefits can be a lifesaver for individuals following an accident, injury or illness. Disabled individuals can rely on Social Security disability benefits to obtain monthly income when they need it most. However, it is not always as simple as it seems.

There are many hoops that the Social Security Administration will make individuals jump through in order to qualify for and receive SSD benefits. Not only do people have to prove their disability, many times they need to prove that they are unable to work in any field. They may also need to prove that they've earned enough work credits over time in order to qualify for benefits.

The attorneys in our law firm understand the long and difficult road it can be to receive SSD benefits. We also understand how important it is that individuals are approved for these benefits. We can work closely with individuals to ensure that their application for benefits is properly filed the first time. We can investigate the situation and gather evidence to support people's claims.

The SSA makes the process difficult. There's no reason to add extra stress by trying to go it alone. For more information about our law firm and SSD benefits, check out our website.
