The Social Security Act allows qualified persons to obtain Social Security benefits in the event they become disabled. Social Security disability benefits are available under two possible programs. Social Security Disability/Retirement Survivors Disability, also called SSD and RSDI, is available to individuals who have a work history and have paid Social Security taxes. The second type of benefit is Social Security income, also called SSI. This program is for persons who have very little work history.

Oftentimes when you first apply for Social Security your claim is denied. At this stage of the application process it is important to know your rights. You may appeal their decision within a certain amount of time and in a specific way. Hiring an attorney from the initial stage is encouraged to confirm that your claim has been filed properly. However, the Pfeifer Law Firm is often retained later in the process and can help supplement the application as needed. Wherever you are in the application process for SSDI/SSI call us today for a free consultation at (501)374-4440.

Where to begin if you are applying for Social Security Disability.

Obtaining a complete copy of your medical records is one of the first steps towards pursuing a Social Security Disability claim. The Pfeifer Law Firm can order your records from the various medical providers to make sure that the Social Security Administration’s file on the claimant is complete. If you cannot afford to be treated by a medical provider, you may contact the Social Security Help Center for assistance to help you find medical care at a low cost, or possibly no cost at all. An experienced Social Security lawyer can help you through the process. You will be asked by the Social Security Administration to provide names of treating physicians, their addresses, a list of medications you are taking, the treatment you are receiving, and the medical diagnosis. They will also ask you to provide a work history at the initial stages of the process.

Who is entitled to receive Social Security Disability?

If you are not able to work because of a disability, you may be entitled to receive Social Security Disability benefits. These benefits could also be available to certain family members. To qualify for these benefits, you have to be disabled according to the guidelines as set out by the Social Security Administration. http://www.ssa.gov/SSA_Home.html

Claims can be won on the basis of one impairment, either physical or psychological, or can be successful on the basis of a combination of impairments. There are times when vocational factors such as age, education, and work history are important and need to be developed in the record. The Pfeifer Law Firm is experienced in reading medical records and understanding the nature of complex diseases and injuries.

Who determines whether you are entitled to receive benefits?

After the initial determination, an Administrative Law Judge with the Social Security Administration will decide if you are disabled. The Pfeifer Law Firm has a successful track record presenting claims and winning social security cases.
