Thousands of Indiana residents each year have to leave their jobs because of serious illness or injury. You might be eligible for Social Security Disability Benefits if this has happened to you. The Social Security Act defines disability as the "inability to engage in any substantial gainful activity by reason of any medically determinable physical or mental impairment which can be expected to result in death or has lasted or can be expected to last for a continuous period of not less than 12 months." These benefits are important as they can be the only thing standing between you and financial ruin when you are out of work due to disability. When you are out of work due to a disabling illness, these benefits may be the only thing standing between you and financial ruin.
The process of applying for benefits, however, can be long and frustrating when you are trying to navigate it on your own. A lawyer specializing in Social Security law can help simplify and speed up the process for you. The Social Security Administration's own statistics show that those applicants who hire legal counsel are more likely to win their cases. And there is little risk to you, as Social Security lawyers are only paid unless you win your case.
To prove that you are disabled to a Social Security, you need thorough medical records documenting your condition. These records will prove key to winning your case. As it can be difficult to find affordable medical care when you are out of work, we have compiled a list of free and low-cost clinics in the Merrillville area.
