Social Security Disability (SSD)

When You Need a Social Security Disability Attorney in Pennsylvania

Individuals who are mentally or physically disabled to the degree that they cannot work are eligible for Social Security Disability (SSD) Insurance benefits. To qualify for benefits, you must show that your disability prevents you from working to earn a living. You must have worked in recent years and paid into the Social Security fund.

If you believe you are eligible for benefits, you should contact your local Social Security office and apply for them. But even if you are eligible and your application is in order, the system will move very slowly before you receive benefits. Worse yet, applications are often denied, which means an appeal that could last 12 to 18 months. Most people who cannot earn a living are not able to keep up with their bills for that long.

Knowledgeable guidance when you need it most

Your best strategy is to get legal representation as soon as possible - preferably an attorney who realizes all that is at stake for you and your family, who knows every detail of Social Security law, and who will work with you every step of the way.

  • Explain the claims process to you
  • Get a clear understanding of your situation
  • Determine your eligibility for SSD benefits
  • Let you know exactly what steps you must take to get the benefits you deserve as quickly as possible
