How Can Disability Lawyers Help You Get Financial Support?

Social Security in the United States is a government program that provides monetary benefits to people who have reached the age of retirement and those that have yet to reach retirement age and suffer from a physical or mental disability. There are rarely any issues associated with applying for retirement benefits but the same cannot be said when the individual is applying for disability benefits. Retirement benefits are all based on the taxes paid while working; disability benefits are based on numerous complex issues. Disability lawyers in NYC help those who are either making their initial application for benefits or have applied only to be denied.

For people with a disability, are younger than the minimum age of retirement and suffer from a physical or mental condition that makes it impossible for them to earn a living, they may be eligible for Social Security disability insurance. The amount that can be paid every month is based on the income the disabled applicant earned while they were employed. The applicant must be able to prove that they amassed sufficient work credits to qualify. For those that cannot meet this demand they can turn Supplemental Security Income which is available to those with no appreciable income, the homeless and the very young.

Although most people are aware of the application process for retirement benefits the same cannot be said for the process of applying for disability benefits. The process is quite complex, those who apply without the assistance of disability lawyers in NYC find their application denied in 70 to 75 percent of the time. These applicants will turn to seasoned Social Security disability lawyers to help them with their appeal. In cases where the applicant is accompanied to his or her hearing by a disability lawyer, the claim is approved about two thirds of the time. Without the help of a lawyer the chances of approval are far less.

Disability lawyers in NYC will typically meet with and confer with the disabled applicant’s doctors and others that provide professional services such as physical therapists. The lawyers become very familiar with the basis of the claim and as such they have a far better understanding of what needs to be done to gain approval. The lawyers, along with expert witnesses if necessary, put forward informed arguments to the administrative law judge, something that the layperson could not do.

Disability lawyers in NYC can help you apply for disability benefits as well as support you and your application during the appeals process. If you have had your application for Social Security disability benefits denied you are invited to contact Daniel Berger, Attorney at Law.
