Randy Walton has practiced law in south Alabama for more than 25 years, with the last 15 years dedicated to helping people with SSD and SSI claims. Randy is proud to serve the people of Mobile and Baldwin County, where he makes his home. He has worked thousands of these cases and hearings and has the knowledge, skills and experience necessary to help you be successful with your claim.
Unlike other law firms, you do not have to wait until your claim has been denied to contact us for help. We want you to get started right away so that you can get your benefits as soon as possible. If you need help with the process of filing your initial application, we are glad to help. If you have questions about your claim, have a hearing coming up, or have any other concerns, we want you to call. We can help you in either of the following Social Security programs:
- Social Security Disability – SSD is for people who have a work history and have paid a portion of their earnings into Social Security over the years. If you become disabled and can no longer work, this program should compensate you based on the years you have put in.
- Supplemental Security Income – Even if you have never worked a day in your life, if you are disabled and need financial assistance due to a limited means of income and limited financial resources, SSI can help.
Don’t Stress Over the Decision to Apply for Benefits
Sometimes people who have become disabled and cannot work are reluctant to apply for Social Security because they want to be self-reliant and not dependent on government “handouts.” What is important to understand about Social Security is that it is an insurance-based system. In fact, the full name of the Social Security Disability program is Social Security Disability Insurance, or SSDI. You worked hard all your life and paid into this system, paying your “premiums” through mandatory payroll deductions and income withholding. SSD is supposed to be here for you when you need it, and you should not hesitate to apply for the benefits that rightfully belong to you, or to fight for them when your application is denied.
Why Choose Walton Law?
The fee charged by a social security disability attorney is the same whether you hire a local attorney who knows you personally, an attorney from far away whom you never meet until the day of your hearing, or some representative who isn’t even licensed to practice law. Why not choose an attorney who is here when you need him, who takes the time to get to know you, and whom you can count on to meet with you and speak with you whenever you have a question about your claim?
It can take 18 months until you start collecting social security benefits, and until then, you have no income because you cannot work. Don’t put off the initiating the process, which will only force you to wait longer. Start today by contacting Walton Law, LLC. We know it may be difficult for you to get around, so we maintain three offices for your convenience and can meet with you whether you are in West Mobile, the eastern shore, or Baldwin County.
