Helping Clients in Wheaton, Arlington Heights, and Across Northern Illinois with the Complex SSD Process

Earning a living is essential to paying your bills and supporting yourself and your household. If you sustain and illness or injury that leaves you physically or mentally disabled, you may suddenly be unable to work, and your entire financial future may be on the line. Fortunately, the Social Security Administration (SSA) provides benefits for individuals who are disabled and can no longer work or earn a sufficient income.

While Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits help millions of Americans, the process of obtaining these benefits is anything but simple. In fact, the SSA reported that only 32 percent of applications were approved in 2015. The Social Security Disability lawyers at Therman & Roach, Attorneys at Law, work to ensure all of our clients have the best chance of receiving the benefits needed as soon as possible.

Helping You Through the SSD Application Process

The first step you can take to improve your chances of approval is to seek assistance with your initial claim application. The application requires very specific evidence of your disability that should be presented in a certain way to sufficiently prove that your disability qualifies you for SSD benefits. All too often, people rush through the application and end up receiving a denial, which can significantly delay receiving benefits. Our attorneys understand the detailed information that is required on the SSD application and can help ensure that your application presents the best case possible in your favor.

Appealing Disability Denials

Even carefully completed applications can get denied by the SSA. However, you should realize that a denial is not the end of the process, as the law affords you the opportunity to appeal the decision. You have an extremely limited amount of time to appeal, however, so it is important to consult with an SSD attorney immediately if you have not already done so.

The appeals procedures are complicated and specific and involve presenting additional evidence in support of your disability claims. It is critical to have representation by a lawyer who fully understands this process so that you can have your denial overturned as soon as possible.
