Social Security Disability Attorneys Fernandina Beach, FL
If you live in Fernandina Beach, Amelia Island, Yulee, or anywhere else in Nassau County and are unable to work due to a personal injury or have fallen ill due to a mental or physical incapacitation, you may be eligible to receive Social Security Disability Income. Identifying when and how you qualify for this government assistance program is actually the easy part. The hard part is actually being granted disability income without the assistance of an attorney or an informed and experienced representative. It seems that nothing is easy in this technological world of ours including filing for and receiving Social Security Disability Income or SSDI. It should not be surprising that the vast majority of persons filing for SSDI are rejected. Even a large percentage of re-filing appeals, called reconsiderations, are also denied benefits for a variety of reasons. According to the National Organization of Social Security Claimant’s Representatives (NOSSCR), a 2018 Government Accountability Office study concluded that SSDI claimants filing for assistance who retained legal and non-legal representatives were granted benefits at a rate 3 times higher than those without representation, during hearing-level allowance rates for Social Security Disability. The study also concluded that the Social Security Administration stated that representative assistance was beneficial in helping claimants compile documentation and medical evidence to be presented at hearings. NOSSCR was established in 1979 and has over 3,900 attorneys and advocates who represent claimants filing for Social Security Disability and Supplemental Security Income assistance throughout the United States.
