Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits exist to help disabled Americans make ends meet when they cannot work. Contrary to what some might think, they’re not a handout, nor will they make anyone rich. They’re designed to bridge the gap between a family making it and falling by the wayside. However, securing SSD benefits for your family can be more difficult than you might think.
Due to a complex and often confusing application process, more than two-thirds of initial Social Security Disability applications are denied. The good news is many people who appeal eventually secure benefits, especially if they have an experienced attorney on their side.
What difference does an attorney make? Experienced Social Security Disability attorneys, like those at Ponce Law, know the intricacies of the process and can help you avoid the common pitfalls that many applicants fall victim to. For instance, to secure benefits, you must prove that you’re unable to do ANY type of work, not just the work you did before your disability. Proving that degree of disability can be difficult without a lawyer.
