When a Pennsylvania resident is injured and unable to work, it is within the rights of that individual to seek financial support. From unpaid medical bills to lost income, a disabled individual and family could be left with a substantial financial burden. Social Security benefits are intended to support those who cannot work due to a mental or physical disability, but it can be a complex process to claim those benefits.
You could be eligible for Social Security Disability benefits if you worked for a certain amount of time and paid into the system. You may file a claim to get these benefits if your injury or disability is expected to last for at least a year. You also have a rightful claim to financial support if doctors do not expect you to ever recover from these injuries.
Applying for needed benefits can be an arduous process. It is extremely important that all applications be completed correctly, and many claims are initially denied. With the help of a lawyer, you will have a better chance of success with your Social Security Disability benefits application.
