Social Security Disability Attorney in New Port Richey, Florida
A New Port Richey SSI/SDD Lawyer can help you get the Benefits you NeedNo one likes to think that they may have to apply for disability social security benefits. The truth is though, according to the Social Security Administration (SSA), that any 20 year old worker has a 3 in 10 chance of becoming disabled before they retire. Despite these chances it can be more complicated than many people think to actually prove and receive a disability benefit. Choosing a well experienced disability attorney can greatly minimize your risks of having an SSI or SSDI application declined. If you have been turned down then a specialist social security disability lawyer is nearly always the best option for appeal.

The process of applying for disability benefits can be complex and lengthy. While the time frame can vary it can often take three to five months for an application to be processed. This time frame makes it important to get your SSI or SSDI claim underway as quickly as you can after you become disabled.
Just because your doctor says you are disabled, does not mean that the SSA will simply accept that.
Many of the terms and requirements that surround disability benefits law can be quite confusing. Experienced disability lawyers understand this and will work to make sure you get the maximum you are entitled to. Disability insurance benefits and SSI benefits are subject to some very strict criteria. You need to be ‘unable to perform any substantial gainful activity’. There are a variety of physical and mental conditions that are set out by the SSA that are accepted. If your particular disability is not on the list it is still possible to receive social security disability benefits, but it will probably be more difficult to have your claim accepted. Again, consulting a competent disability lawyer is probably your best option.
