Be it an accident, a devastating diagnosis, or a long slow decline, disability can strike us all at any time. Suddenly, your job and livelihood are now in jeopardy. You’re missing time at work, your performance is suffering, and you’ve burned up just about all your vacation time. Finally, if you’re not there already, there comes a point where you can no longer continue. Everything you’ve worked so hard for is now in jeopardy. Everything…Your finances, your health, your mental health, and your relationships can change in a heartbeat.

If you’re like most Americans who weren’t lucky enough to have a job with Short (STD) or Long-term (LTD) disability, or you’ve had a disabling on-the-job injury which is paying Worker’s Compensation benefits, Social Security (SSD & SSI) is suddenly your only option. Like many Americans, SSDI may be the only thing keeping you in your home with your family and not on the street.

If you’re lucky enough to have STD and LTD through work, you’ll most likely be required to file an SSD application, and the insurer will only pay for 24 months, unless you can prove that you’re disabled from any occupation. The choice of who will represent you before SSA is yours, and yours alone! You shouldn’t risk what will probably be your only shot at benefits by letting non-attorney “advocates” represent you. You should also be vigilant of others who, without adequate or any disclosure, will “farm-out” your ALJ hearing to per-diem lawyers as a cost-saving measure for them! Our SSA fee will be deducted by your LTD Carrier. Call us today for more details.

For others, if you receive Worker’s Compensation, or are burning through your savings, don’t wait to get denied. Call SSLG before you file your Application. The majority of our awards were filed at the Initial Application level!! Don’t risk it. There is too much at stake.

What Is The Application Process?

Make no mistake, the Application and qualifying process of Social Security benefits is quite daunting. Nearly all Americans have no clue about how to navigate this byzantine maze. For reference, Webster’s dictionary defines byzantine as: Excessively complicated, and typically involving a great deal of administrative detail.

That word perfectly summarizes the Social Security disability and qualifying process.

Most Americans use someone they know as their yardstick. Over the 25+ years, our clients repeatedly tell us: “I don’t understand……..My [neighbor/friend/relative] is on Social Security and he/she is not nearly as disabled as me.”

This is because they don’t understand the variations and nuances of this process. The government uses a lot of fancy terms that they define such as substantial gainful activity, medically determinable impairment, meet or equal a Listing, and the byzantine process goes on.

In short, you have the burden of proving that you have a qualifying medical condition or diagnosis whose symptoms and limitations keep you from performing not only your past jobs, but unskilled jobs as well. When they deny your claim, they make a finding that you can do on a Full Time Basis [8 hrs day, 5 days a week, with a ½ hour lunch break and two 10 minute breaks] the most insulting, minimum wage, high-turnover, dead-end, go nowhere jobs. To give this a little bit more color, here is an excerpt from an actual ALJ decision:

  • Kitchen Helper – DOT code 318.687 – 010, Medium, unskilled, 302,000 of these jobs in the national economy.
  • Machine Feeder – DOT code 699.686 – 010, Medium, unskilled, 29,000 jobs.
  • Ticket Taker – DOT code 344.667 – 010, light work, unskilled, 31,000 of these jobs in the national economy
  • Cafeteria Attendant – DOT code 311.677 – 010 light work, unskilled, 60,000 jobs
  • Mail Clerk – DOT code 209.687 – 026, light, unskilled, 90,000 jobs

Look them up in the DOT (Directory of Occupational Titles)! Type in these serial numbers, and you’ll see the physical and mental demands of these jobs. What you won’t see is the pay, or benefits, but you’ll get the idea.

We want you to think about having worked your entire life since you were a minor, paid into FICA for 20 – 30 years, getting fired from your job because you can’t perform it anymore, living at home (if you’re lucky) with your spouse and family and not being able to contribute. Then imagine going through this process with the US government who is supposedly here to help, and being told on an official government form that you can be a Ticket Taker!

You did great helping me to get myself prepared for the trial, particularly my mindset going into the hearing, difficult as it was.

Rochelle R. St. Paul, MN

It was your hard work, your focus and your determination that made the hearing go so smooth

Wendy S. Portland, OR

You certainly made a difficult and somewhat confusing situation at times very easy.

If you have to file a new Social Security claim, don't do it on your own unless your disease is on the Compassionate Allowance List located on SSA website. If you get a letter that SSA is re-evaluating your disability claim, don't do that on your own either. If you have to appeal a decision or go in front of an Administrative Law Judge, do not do it by yourself! If I had called The Social Security Law Group right away, I think I'd be in a much different predicament than the one that I am in now. Their experience can help you navigate through the ridiculous hurdles that are thrown your way by the administration.

Fourth, our attorneys and support staff will work with you to complete all application and appeal forms, compile the medical and vocational evidence necessary to prove your case and submit the documents electronically to the Social Security Administration on your behalf. We routinely ask medical providers to complete one or more proprietary questionnaires that we have developed over the years that enable us to paint a more accurate and compelling picture of how your disability limits your ability to do work.

five

Fifth, if your claim must be appealed to an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ), we try whenever possible to speed-up the process by filing a written brief to secure an “On-the-Record Decision” and avoid the time and travel associated with an In-Person Hearing.

six

Sixth, if an In-Person Hearing is required, your Social Security Law Group attorney will make it as easy and stress-free as possible. He or she will prep you extensively beforehand and represent you personally in front of the ALJ. Your attorney will help you answer questions from the judge, present evidence, cross examine any agency vocational and/or medical experts present, and make closing arguments to clearly summarize your case.

seven

Seventh, we continue to help after benefits are awarded by completing an array of required tasks, including confirming past-due benefit amounts, filing for dependent benefits, and assisting with Medicare enrollment.

GET THE MOBILE APP

Modern Technology That Adds Value.

Throughout the representation process, our staff is readily available to answer questions and provide updates on the status of your claim by phone, email, online, or mobile app.

We also manage all communications between Social Security Administration (SSA) personnel and you, including requests for additional information, help completing any medical or vocational questionnaires issued by the agency, scheduling a consultative exam by an agency doctor, and ensuring all filing deadlines are met.

The Social Security Law Group has the only mobile app that enables clients to submit medical evidence, enter recaps of visits to medical providers using speech-to-text technology, update prescriptions, and receive alerts about upcoming appointments or deadlines, right from their mobile devices or personal computer.


55,000+ awards and growing

No Fee Unless We Win Your Case!

At Social Security Law Group, you pay nothing unless we win your case. Our fee is 25% of past-due benefits or $6,000, whichever is less. This fee structure is set by SSA. When we win your case, our fee is automatically withheld by the SSA from any retroactive benefits you receive – so you won’t pay any out-of-pocket costs for our services.

If your case progresses to the Hearing level, unlike some multi-practice area Attorneys or non-attorney “advocates”, Social Security Law Group won’t ask you to reimburse us for travel expenses to represent you in-person before an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ).
