Do You Have a Claim?
If you are suffering from physical or mental disability that makes it impossible to function at work, you have the right to pursue Social Security Disability benefits. Unfortunately, even though you have paid into the system throughout your years of employment, these benefits can be very difficult to get. In fact, over half of all claims submitted are denied.
As with any government agency, the Social Security Administration can make it exceptionally difficult to get paid the benefits you need and deserve. That's when DAA can be of service to you. Our highly rated firm is focused strictly on Social Security claims and benefits, and with over 17 years in practice and thousands of claims resolved, you can have confidence that everything possible will be done to help you get the benefits you need to move forward after suffering a disability.
Are you eligible for Social Security Disability benefits? We can help.
How do you know if you have a claim? The administration has specific criteria that identify those that are eligible for benefits. We are exceptionally familiar with the process and how to achieve success in the claims process.
According to the SSA, you must meet two different earnings tests in order to get social security benefits. A "recent work" test will examine your age at the time that you became disabled, and a "duration of work" test will determine if you worked long enough under Social Security. There are different ways to qualify under the recent work test that are based off your age and the amount of time that you have been working. For example, if you have become disabled in or before the quarter when you turn 24, then you general need 1.5 years of work during the three-year period ending with the quarter your disability began in order to qualify for benefits.
If you have had your claim denied, we can assist you and review your situation and identify the best option to move forward with an appeal. Any error in your submission will lead to a denial, delay or other problem. Your initial claim submission is of great importance if you hope to avoid the need for an appeal after your claim is denied. If you wonder if you have a claim, we offer a free case evaluation to help you determine what benefits you could be eligible to pursue.
There are a large number of types of disabilities that lead to an approved claim, but the presentation of your claim and the supporting documentation is a critical point. Any error, failure to submit needed information or other error or omission will just lead to a denied claim. We urge you to contact a highly qualified lawyer from our firm prior to filing your claim. We ensure that you have the best opportunity for success, and our goal is to help you get your life back on track with the full range of benefits that you deserve.
