Folkston Social Security Disability Attorneys
If you are unable to work because of an injury or have acquired a physical or mental illness, chances are you have considered filing for Social Security Disability Income or SSDI. If that is the case, you need to be aware that without proper legal guidance or experienced representation, your initial claim made to the Social Security Administration will probably be denied. The bureaucratic procedures in place for presenting medical evidence and the necessary documentation to prove that you meet all of the requirements to be awarded SSDI are very complicated. In the majority of cases, initial applicants for Social Security Disability Income are rejected out of hand and are forced to seek an appeal for a reconsideration of their case within a 60-day window or face a dismissal of their claim. Because of the serious nature of these cases, studies have been completed and reveal even applicants with certain cancers or even multiple sclerosis have an initial approval rating on average of only 65% and are also forced to appeal their case. Claimants must also prove that their eligibility to receive SSDI is based on additional factors such as an inability to work for at least one year, currently being treated or under the care of a medical professional, their age, and even the length of their work history.
