Social Security Attorney in Southern Alabama Assisting Clients With Their Social Security Needs
If you’re suffering from a debilitating injury or illness and you need help with an SSD or SSI claim, you’ll want to enlist the help of a skilled Alabama Social Security lawyer. At Walton Law LLC, we’re well versed in the federal disability laws. We will go above and beyond to get you the benefits you need.
How Does the Government Define Disability?
If an injury or illness has made it impossible for you to earn a living, you may qualify for financial assistance from the Social Security Administration (SSA). This monthly payment is called Social Security Disability (SSD). That said, it’s actually a lot harder to get approved for SSD than you might think. The SSA has a strict set of guidelines for what types of disabilities are awarded financial assistance. The legal definition of disability is more specific under Social Security than other federal programs.
In order to get approved for SSD, your disability must be expected to last at least 12 months or until death. Your condition also must be severe enough you cannot work or transition to another job. The Social Security Administration knows that there are people out there who try to take advantage of the system, so they make the process of qualifying lengthy and complex, often leaving Alabama residents worried about how they will make everyday expenses.
What Our Clients Say About Us…
When Should I Apply for Social Security Disability?
Social Security Disability cases can last months, if not longer, and the truth is, over 70% of initial applications are denied. If your case is denied and you file an appeal, that’s a process that could drag on and on. That’s why it’s our advice to apply for SSD as soon as possible. This may mean as soon as your monthly income falls below the government’s minimum listed amount, or the day you stop working.
As a Social Security Disability lawyer, I know exactly what it takes to ensure your initial application has the required information and evidence to back up your claim and have the best chance to get approved. If you’ve been denied and want to appeal, Walton Law LLC will guide you every step of the way, making the process as quick and seamless as possible.
