Helping Disabled Individuals Navigate the Social Security System
The process for securing Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits can be long, complicated and frustrating. If you are struggling to get the benefits you deserve, don't be discouraged. Most Social Security disability claims are turned down a number of times before being awarded on appeal.
At Kempner Law, P.A., I work closely with disabled workers in Tallahassee and the surrounding area of the Florida Panhandle. I focus on helping people get the financial help they deserve from the Social Security Administration as quickly as possible. To discuss your case with me in a free initial consultation, call my firm today at 850-222-HURT (4878) or toll free at 888-375-6273.
Whether you are seeking SSDI benefits due to physical or mental disabilities, I will aggressively seek the full benefits you need and deserve. I handle claims involving a variety of disabling conditions such as:
- Heart disease
- Depression and anxiety
- Multiple sclerosis
- Back injuries
- Chronic fatigue or chronic pain
- Rheumatoid arthritis
Navigating the Social Security Administration Process
The early stages of a disability claim involve telephone calls and paperwork that you can complete with a little guidance. Unfortunately, the majority of claims will be denied at the first and second stage, known as the initial application and, if denied, a request for reconsideration. If you are denied at the reconsideration stage, you may request a hearing before a judge. At this stage, it is beneficial to have a Tallahassee social security disability attorney involved on your behalf.
Throughout all stages of the process, no matter how discouraging it may seem, it is important to keep a positive mental attitude and continue getting the medical or psychological treatment you need. It is also important to remain timely with your appeals as most must be filed within 60 days so that you can move forward in the process.
Keep copies of all of your medical records in an organized fashion. It is difficult to prevail without well documented and organized records of your medical condition.
