Applying For Social Security Disability
Obtaining Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits can be a confusing process. There are many potential pitfalls and roadblocks that you may encounter if you try to complete the application on your own. At Ross, Quinn and Ploppert, we can help you with every aspect of your application and protect your interests at every stage.
At our firm, we take pride in the personal service we provide to our clients. We have extensive experience handling SSD applications. We can answer your questions, provide you with knowledgeable advice and guide you through the process so you can get the Social Security benefits you need.
Working to Maximize Your Benefits
There are many benefits to having a lawyer help you with your SSD application. Most importantly, our attorneys will diligently work to nail down an optimal onset date for your disability. This date can have an impact on the amount of benefits you receive when your benefits are approved. After the approval of your benefits, our attorneys will work to secure arrearages (past, unpaid benefits) based on that onset date.
By handling your application on your own, you may miss out on the chance to secure your benefits sooner or to maximize your benefits. We can provide you with the experienced insight you need when applying for benefits, handling an appeal or at any other stage in the SSD process.
I Just Completed My Application, Now What?
What to Do After You Apply
Social Security Disability Applications are a long process, and many people give up because they get bombarded with paperwork they do not understand. If you have applied and now are lost in a sea of paperwork, please call our office so that we may help you before you give up. Our office has numerous case management workers who work tirelessly to make sure our clients know what is going on with their case.
Social Security will be sending you mounds of paperwork after you apply; work history questionnaires, pain questionnaires, function reports, and medical authorization forms, just to name a few. Plus, Social Security will want information about any past workers compensation claims, current income, past income, and citizenship. All of the information requests and forms are time sensitive, so your best bet is to trust an experienced law firm to help you figure out what needs to be completed and how to complete it.
You should always keep Social Security updated with all new information about address, phone number, medications and doctors’ visits. You have enough to worry about, our case managers will consistently check in on you and your case to make sure that Social Security has all the correct, up-to-date information.
