Social Security Disability Lawyer in Rhinelander, Wisconsin
Let a Rhinelander Disability Attorney Help you File for Disability BenefitsLiving with a disability can be challenging enough. For many, a disability can force them to leave their job and create an income gap. Add that to medical bills and other everyday household expenses and it can be a major strain on a family's finances. Social security disability benefits are for some people the only avenue to replace that lost income and keep many families afloat. The Social Security Administration provides disability benefits for anyone who qualifies, though for the average person, the process of applying for and winning SSD or SSI (supplemental security income) benefits is too complex to be handled alone.
That is why many people are looking to social security disability attorneys to help them with their disability claims. It is definitely possible to complete many parts of the application without the assistance of a licensed law professional, but an SSD/SSI lawyer has experience in social security disability law that can help you avoid a lot of the red tape that can be involved in filing a claim. In fact, your chances of winning your disability benefits case is enhanced greatly by hiring a disability advocate. It is important to realize that a large majority of cases are initially turned down, but your your social security disability attorney will be with you for every step, including any necessary appeals.

Originally called Pelican Rapids, the city of Rhinelander is the reputed home of the Hodag – a mythical creature that supposedly lived in the forests around the area. While it was admitted to be a hoax in the late 1800s, its legend has lived on and the Hodag (which was a combination of several animals including a frog, elephant and dinosaur) has become mascot for the town as well as two schools in the area. Rhinelander is also the seat of Oneida County which has more than 7,600 people who are considered disabled . It is likely that a number of them may qualify for social security disability benefits.
Open communication with your doctor is a crucial element of winning your SSD/SSI benefits claim. Be upfront with your doctor about your condition and symptoms. A doctor's opinion can influence the final decision over your SSD or SSI application or appeal. Talk to your doctor about your job duties and learn if your condition would stop you from working on a full-time basis. For example, a person with a knee injury may be more likely to win his or her claim if they previously worked in construction or another occupation that required them to be on their feet for long periods of time.
Even if you are not permanently disabled, you can still win an SSD/SSI claim, however you could lose those benefits if you are ever able to return to work. The Social Security Administration may occasionally request your medical records for an update on your condition. If your SSD/SSI benefits are withdrawn and you disagree with the decision, you have the option to file an appeal.
