Am I eligible to receive Social Security Disability Benefits?

The Social Security Administration estimates that the average American adult has a 3-in-10 chance of becoming physically or mentally disabled and requiring financial support at some time in their life. Provided that you have been unable to work for at least a year (or are expected to be out of work for a year) you should be eligible to receive benefits. It is also possible to file a claim if you have a condition which has been diagnosed as being fatal. While some injuries or illnesses are commonly recognized as being qualified for Social Security Disability, others may require more extensive medical documentation and testimony, which the team at The Disability Group can assist you in gathering.

Appealing a Denial of Financial and Medical Benefits

Unfortunately, 76% of new claims are initially denied in the Panama City area a statistic which gives rise to a common perception that few applications are approved on the first try. If you have received a letter denying your application for Social Security benefits, The Disability Group stands ready to represent you throughout the appeals process, including reconsideration, a hearing with an Administrative Law Judge, and even taking the case to the Appeals Council if necessary. In many cases, it is possible to recover unpaid financial and medical benefits. In these cases, the disabled person is paid in either a lump sum or in installments for financial benefits they should have been receiving. Additionally, medical benefits (in the form of either Medicare or Medicaid) may be applied retroactively from the date of disability.

How much can I receive in SSD benefits?

The amount you could receive in benefits for Social Security Disability depends largely on how much you have worked and how much taxes you paid over the course of your lifetime. Any time you were working at a job at which your payroll was subject to Social Security taxes, you were contributing to the program and thereby increasing the amount of financial benefits you are able to receive. The benefit amount is not subject to a simple formula such as two-thirds of your average weekly wage, but is instead based on a number of complex calculations. The team at The Disability Group will assist you in gathering the necessary documentation to help you maximize the value of your claim, and will fight for you if you have been awarded less than you deserve.
