If you cannot work because you have a medical condition that is expected to last at least one year or to ultimately result in death, you may be able to receive Social Security Disability Insurance benefits. These benefits take the place of the income you would have earned from a job so that you can cover your basic expenses, but they’re not a free handout. You earned them. They were taken out of your paychecks, and they are yours to claim when you need them.
Claiming them can be hard, however. The vast majority of Social Security Disability Insurance Claims are denied the first time. But working with an experienced SSDI lawyer can help things go more smoothly and successfully. At The Pearson Law Firm, our goal is to get our clients the benefits they need and deserve as quickly as possible. Contact our office in Oxford for legal counsel in DeSoto County, Tupelo, Columbus, or Batesville, Mississippi.
The Social Security Disability benefits process starts when you apply through the Social Security Administration. The Administration considers a number of factors before approving your application, including whether you have worked enough years to qualify for SSDI and the severity of your illness or injury.
It is important to apply for SSDI benefits as soon as possible because the process can take a long time. Having an experienced attorney on your side can help things go more smoothly because your lawyer can help you make sure that the application you submit is complete and effective the first time around.
At The Pearson Law Firm, we can compile medical evidence proving you deserve Social Security disability, coordinate your medical treatment and assist you with process paperwork. We can also give you perspective on the resources available to you throughout the process.
We are always available to answer questions or to update you on the status of your claim. As a small Mississippi law firm, we come to know our clients. They can turn to a legal team that understands what they’re going through—and that fights hard to get the best possible results.
