Social Security Disability: Step-by-Step
Did you apply for disability? Has it become impossible to work because of your disabilities? Apply for social security disability. This money has been coming out of your paycheck all these years you’ve worked. It’s your money! If you have been denied your benefits, call us at Panter Law Firm, PLLC at 601-607-3156.
It is essential to act quickly to obtain a hearing date as soon as possible. It is not uncommon for these matters to take several months to resolve.
Filing for social security benefits (SSDI)
The first step is to see if the the Social Security Administration approves your claim upon initial filing. The social security administration can guide you through this initial process, but if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call us at 601-607-3156.
Denied?! Your Right to a Hearing
If you are denied, HIRE AN ATTORNEY! Social Security Disability attorneys know how to help you gather and present all relevant evidence you may not have included when you initially filed. You have the opportunity for a hearing with an Administrative Law Judge after you are denied. You can re-file, but it is in your best interest to present your case before one of these judges as soon as you receive your denial letter.
Why do you need representation? Well, attorneys are very familiar with the law and know what needs to be presented for a judge to determine the nature of your disability.
Discuss with your attorney whether it would be in your best interest to file a new claim (re-file), or appeal the decision of the Administrative Law Judge. There is a narrow window of time, so as soon as you were denied after the hearing, talk to your attorney.
