A skilled social security attorney can help you navigate the complex waters of Social Security, and make the difficult application process much less stressful on you and your family.
What Can Ontario’s Capable Social Security Attorney Do For You?
Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is intended for individuals whose physical or mental limitations prevent them from holding a job. If you have suffered a disabling injury or disease and can no longer work, you could be entitled to receive SSDI benefits to help cover essential expenses. The program doesn’t just provide modest monetary assistance. It works to provide full financial support in order to make up for your lost wages.
However, there are several obstacles you must face in order to obtain these benefits. First and foremost, you have to meet the federal government’s strict criteria. You are considered ‘disabled’ if:
- You cannot do the work you were previously doing,
- You cannot adjust to other types of work, because of your condition(s), and
- Your disability is expected to last for at least one year or result in death.
In addition to these narrow guidelines, you must be disabled for 12 months before you can qualify. After demonstrating these limitations to the Social Security Administration, you can then be entitled to SSDI benefits.
Seem simple? Unfortunately, it’s not always that clear-cut. Each social security claim is different and whether or not you obtain benefits is solely dependent upon your specific circumstances. The system can be confusing and the application process is tedious. If you’re struggling with the requirements, it’s time to contact a social security attorney, like Dr. Bill LaTour. Our office knows the ins-and-outs of the Social Security system, making us qualified to strongly present your case in order to secure the SSDI benefits you need to support your livelihood. Please don’t hesitate to call our office at 800-803-5090. We can help you understand how to deal with the Social Security Administration, and evaluate the best way to approach your particular situation.
Social Security, A Complex System
Due to instances of fraud, the government has had to enforce more stringent procedures in order to identify individuals who attempt to claim fake disabilities or medical conditions so they can abuse the system. Sadly, this has caused the Social Security Administration to become skeptical of everyone applying, even deserving disabled individuals that desperately need to obtain SSDI benefits. In many cases, SSDI claims are denied in the initial stages, because of the Social Security Administration’s overzealous methods.
The Social Security system is a complex beast, and it can be frustrating when you need to receive benefits for your disability, but are forced through a difficult application process and possibly denied. The social security attorneys at the office of Dr. Bill LaTour understand this, and have helped Ontario families see their SSDI benefits at the end of the challenging application tunnel. With the difficult nature of the government program, you’re naturally going to have questions. Our knowledgeable team can provide the vital answers you need to move forward.
We exclusively focus on SSDI and SSI claims, so you can count on us to effectively handle your case from beginning to end. Although denials are common, they are not the end of the road.
