Many people do not expect their valid Social Security Disability claim
to be denied, but there is no guarantee that you will be able to receive
the financial and medical benefits you deserve without a fight. According
to the Social Security Administration, 76% of all new claims are denied,
and not all of those who choose to appeal the denial are successful. If
you suffer from a medical condition (physical or psychological) that prevents
you from working and need to find a way to support yourself and your family,
it is in your best interests to hire an attorney to help you prepare your
application and represent you throughout the entire claims process. Contact
Shepard Law for help from an experienced attorney.
It is not uncommon for the Social Security Administration to take several
months to review your disability application. If your case requires a
hearing, you can expect to wait 12 to18 months before seeing a judge.
The Shepard Law team will do everything in their power to help your claim
get approved prior to a Hearing. However, if necessary, Mr. Shepard will
work to obtain the earliest possible hearing date. The goal at Shepard
Law is to get you approved as soon as possible so that you start receiving
the payments and health care you need and deserve. Call or visit the firm
now for an initial consultation to learn whether you are eligible to receive benefits.

If you are covered by a long term disability insurance policy, the insurance
provider may require you to file a claim for SSD benefits as a condition

against your policy.
You may not have realized it, but there is a very good chance that you
have been paying for disability insurance since the day you first starting
earning a paycheck. Provided that you have been working at jobs where
