Social Security Disability Lawyer in Ogden, Utah
Let a Ogden Disability Attorney Help you File for Disability BenefitsIf an injury or serious illness has kept you from working a full-time job for twelve months or more, there is a chance that you could be eligible for social security disability (SSD) or supplemental security income (SSI) benefits. To qualify, you must prove to the satisfaction of the Social Security Administration that you are disabled. First, however, you have to file an SSD or SSI benefits application.
To apply, you can visit the local branch of the SSA, call the national toll-free hotline or go online and visit the SSA website. Yet for many people, the process of following through with the application and receiving their disability benefits becomes more than they can handle on their own. That is why a fourth and increasingly popular option is to hire a social security disability attorney who can assist you through every portion of the claims procedure from the initial application to any necessary appeals.
Hiring a trained SSD/SSI lawyer can help you answer any questions you may have about the process of applying for disability benefits. They will have knowledge of how social security disability benefits regulations work and can assist with writing letters and creating a narrative that will present your case in the best possible fashion.

Situated near the Wasatch Mountains is Ogden, Utah, the home of Weber State University. Throughout its history, the city has been a major part of the railroad industry and still handles a great deal of rail freight. Unfortunately in Ogden and Weber County, there are more than 29,000 people living with disabilities - many of them likely qualified to receive disability benefits.
Many people wonder if a disability has to be permanent in order to qualify for SSD or SSI benefits. In reality, there is no set standard for how disabled a person must be in order to be eligible. Each case is evaluated individually and takes into account an applicant's age and previous occupation. Generally a worker who is closer to retirement age is more likely to have their claim accepted. However it is not impossible for a younger applicant to have their disability claim granted. It is dependent on how their injury or illness affects their ability to do their job. For instance, a person with a knee or leg injury is more likely to win their case if they do a job that requires them to be on their feet all day.
It is possible to lose your benefits if you recover and are able to go back to work. The Social Security Administration could occasionally request your medical records to determine if you are still disabled. If you have your SSD or SSI benefits withdrawn, you have the option to file an appeal. You may also reapply. It is a good idea to consult with a qualified social security disability benefits lawyer about all of your options and learn which choice is the best for you.
