When you work, you pay taxes into the Social Security system. And when an illness or injury prevents you from working, SSD benefits are supposed to provide you and your family with financial support. But errors on your application for benefits can lead to delays or denials—and you need benefits now.

That’s why Ponce Law is here for you. We know the SSD application process, and we can use our experience and knowledge to help you get the best results possible. Let our knowledgeable Goodlettsville Social Security Disability attorneys answer your questions and build a strong claim on your behalf so you can focus on your health.


In order to receive Social Security Disability Benefits, Tennessee residents need to first meet the Social Security Administration’s definition of disabled, which requires you to have a severe disabling condition that prevents you from working, doing work you have done previously, or doing any other form of work.

Secondly, you need to have worked for a sufficient length of time while paying into the Social Security system to earn “credits.”

  • If you are under age 24, you must have earned six credits in the three years leading up to the date you became disabled.
  • If you are between ages 24-30, you must have worked at least half the time between age 21 and the date you became disabled.
  • If you are age 31 or older, you must have earned minimum 20 credits in the 10 years leading up to your disability, but depending on your age you may need more than 20 work credits.

If you are unsure whether you meet the requirements, call our Goodlettsville SSD lawyers for a free consultation.


If you applied for SSD benefits already and were denied, don’t be discouraged. Many applications are denied on the first submission, sometimes for something as simple as incorrect paperwork. Our attorneys have experience advising Goodlettsville-area residents on the proper procedures for filing for SSD benefits, and we can help you file an appeal to maximize your chances of success.
