Troy Social Security Claims Attorneys

A long-term disability can significantly impair your ability to provide for yourself and your family. You may be forced to find a new job in a different field, or you may be unable to work at all. Fortunately, Social Security is available to help people with disabilities make ends meet.

Receiving Social Security benefits can be a challenge, however. There are often long wait periods, and sometimes claims are unfairly denied due to misunderstandings or clerical errors. If you are pursuing Social Security benefits, we can help. Call Ravid & Associates, P.C. at (866) 644-6587.

Demonstrating Eligibility

Depending on your circumstances, you may be eligible for either Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI). While both of these are available to people who have retired or have disabilities, SSDI is generally reserved for those who have worked long enough to pay income taxes.

In order to demonstrate your eligibility for SSDI or SSI, you will likely need several different kinds of documentation. You will need evidence of:

  • Your diagnosis and the medical tests that support it
  • The impairments caused by your condition
  • Your prognosis (how long your condition is expected to last)
  • Your work history

Unfortunately, even with proper documentation, disability claims can be denied. If you are struggling to receive the benefits you need, an experienced attorney may be able to help by assisting with paperwork and fighting to protect your rights.
