Our McHenry SSD/SSDI Lawyers Handle Claims From Initial Application Through Appeal
Commonly thought of as a “retirement” program, Social Security is also an insurance system established by the government. It was designed to provide for individuals and their families after a disability or an injury renders them unable to work. Obtaining these benefits is not easy because the rules of the system are very complicated and the government wants to screen out false claims. As a result, they throw out a large number of valid initial claims along with the fraudulent claims. To obtain the benefits you deserve, or to get your benefits reinstated following suspension of benefits, you will need the help of an experienced Social Security Disability attorney.
Helping You Get the Social Security Benefits You Need
The amount of time you have worked and the nature of your disability will be the greatest factors in determining your eligibility and the amount of your benefits. The SSD attorneys at the Taradash Law Firm can help you with every aspect of your claim, including:
- Helping you file your initial claim or file for reconsideration or appeal
- Offering documentation of disability from medical records and vocational experts
- Defining your disability in accordance with the federal guidelines
- Providing all appropriate documentation to support your claim
- Representing you at the administrative law judge hearing and before the Appeals Council
- Communicating with the Social Security Administration (SSA) on your behalf throughout the entire process
We Can Also Help You With Workers’ Compensation Claims
We also assist clients with workers’ compensation claims. Benefits obtained from workers’ comp or Social Security Disability programs can reduce your overall benefits. We can potentially minimize this offset and increase your total benefits. At the Taradash Law Firm, we understand the emotional and financial strain that a delay or denial of Social Security Disability benefits can place on your family. We provide dedicated personal service for every client throughout the appeals process.
