Working through a Social Security disability claim

The holiday season can be both an enjoyable and stressful time for Pennsylvania residents. There is plenty of joy in gathering with friends and family and giving gifts to loved ones. At the same time, however, there is stress in meeting these obligations, including the pressure that comes with increased financial expenses during the holiday season.

Accordingly, while there is never a good time to suffer a setback at work, this can be particularly true during this time of the year. For instance, when someone suffers an injury or illness that prevents the person from working for a significant period of time, it can place a serious hardship on the individual and his or her family.

Fortunately, there are options available to help individuals in this situation. Through Social Security Disability Insurance benefits, individuals can receive compensation based upon their disability or injury.

While the extra income can be a major help to individuals in need, the process of obtaining SSD benefits can be complicated. There are certain eligibility requirements that must be met, as well as timelines and paperwork that is necessary to process and approve a claim. Many claims may initially be denied, and therefore it may be necessary to appeal the first decision.

Our firm has been helping clients work through these complexities for many years, including appealing denials and working with doctors who will confirm a person’s disability or injury. While there is never a guarantee of receiving benefits, our firm can provide thorough representation that gives a person the best chance of receiving the benefits they need.
