The U.S. government provides disability benefits to those who cannot work due to serious medical impairments. Administered by the Social Security Administration (SSA), these benefits provide a crucial pillar of financial support to individuals and families throughout Kansas. Without these benefits, many people would go bankrupt or have to move out of their homes. Social Security Law Group is proud to help people navigate the application process. Obtaining benefits should be easier than it is, but we have the experience to present your case in a logical manner. For assistance, contact a Kansas Social Security disability lawyer for a free consultation.

We Have Broad Experience with Social Security Benefits

The federal government has many programs to help people, including programs for children who have never worked or widows and widowers who lost a spouse. A Social Security disability lawyer in Kansas can help you review whether you qualify for any of these programs and provide legal assistance for obtaining benefits. Our team is happy to help with:

  • Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI): This is the major insurance program for workers in the United States. Workers are eligible for SSDI benefits if they have a qualifying medical impairment and have earned sufficient work credits based on their age. This program is not need-based, so there is no income cut-off. An SSDI attorney in Kansas can help you apply or contest a denial by bringing an appeal.
  • Supplemental Security Income (SSI):  This program helps low-income Kansans. Unlike disability benefits, SSI benefits are based on financial need, so you cannot have too much income or assets. However, you might qualify even if you have no work history. SSI benefits are available to adults or children with disabilities, or even for someone age 65 or older without a disability.
  • Survivor’s Benefits: If your spouse or parent paid into Social Security, then you might qualify for a survivor benefit after they die. Survivor benefits provide a financial cushion to many people during a difficult time, and our SSDI attorney in Kansas is happy to explain them in greater detail.
  • Childhood Disability Benefits: Disabled children need financial support, but they don’t have the work history that would qualify them for SSDI. However, SSA has created a program that helps children under 18 with substantial impairments. We encourage families to reach out to a Kansas Social Security disability attorney at our firm for more information. 
  • Medicare: Most people are familiar with Medicare, which provides health insurance to people 65 and older. Even younger individuals might qualify for Medicare due to a disability. Call one of our lawyers today to review whether this is an option.

Denied Benefits? You Can Appeal

A little secret about Social Security is that many people are rejected initially. They complete the application, submit supporting documentation, and then receive a denial notice in the mail. Many are shocked because they are struggling with a serious impairment which prevents them from working and supporting themselves.

The good news is that your Social Security journey does not end with the initial denial. Instead, you have many levels of appeals. However, you are subject to strict time limits, so reach out to a Kansas Social Security disability attorney as soon as possible.

The appeals process usually follows this sequence:

  • Reconsideration: If you are denied benefits, you usually have 60 days to request reconsideration. At this stage, someone who was not involved with the initial rejection will look at your file and can award benefits.
  • Administrative Hearing: A denial at the reconsideration stage does not end your case. You can request a hearing with an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ). The hearing is a little like a trial, though more informal. Your lawyer will present evidence about your work history and your medical condition and its impact. The ALJ might also ask questions. ALJs are empowered to award benefits—and many of them do.
  • Appeals Council: If you are dissatisfied with the ALJs decision, you might request an appeal before the Appeals Council in Virginia. This council reviews the work of ALJs to ensure the judge followed the law. The Appeals Council has discretion about whether they consider your appeal, so they might not agree to hear your case. They can award or deny benefits or possibly send the case back for a new hearing.
  • Federal Court: Filing a lawsuit in federal district court is the final stage. Our attorneys often point out to the district court how the ALJ failed to follow the law or ignored relevant evidence.

Our Services

At Social Security Law Group, we have seen too many men, women, and children denied benefits even when they clearly qualify. That is unfair, and we have dedicated decades of law practice to helping people like you. An SSDI lawyer at our firm can assist your case by:

  • Answering any questions you have;
  • Reviewing medical records to better understand your current limitations;
  • Analyzing whether you qualify for benefits under the applicable program;
  • Highlighting other benefits you might qualify for;
  • Completing applications and providing information to SSA;
  • Filing an appeal or request for reconsideration in a timely manner;
  • Securing additional evidence in support of your claim;
  • Representing you at a hearing or appeal;
  • Litigating your claim in federal court.

You Can Afford Our Services

We realize money is tight. Being unable to work takes a financial toll on families. Helpfully, we can represent clients without requesting any up-front legal fees. We accept a portion of any benefit award instead, up to a maximum dollar amount. Contact us to learn more about how we provide expert legal services to our clients at an affordable price.
