If you are ready to get started with a successful Social Security disability claim, The Law Office Of Jeffrey W. Johnson has you covered.
Given that the benefits program is run by the Social Security Administration, you must meet certain requirements to qualify. The most important qualifications include:
It is worth noting that you must have worked recently and long enough under Social Security to qualify for benefits. The work credits provided by Social Security are based on your wages, and you are able to earn up to 4 per year. The amount of work credits needed for benefits depends on when your disability began and your age.
In order to meet Social Security’s definition of disability, you must have a medically measurable physical or mental impairment that makes it impossible for you to engage in any “substantial gainful activity”. Furthermore, the condition must last for a continuous period of at least 1 year, and if you were to engage in this activity, it would result in significant harm or death.
From providing you with specialized guidance to filling out paperwork and communicating with the Social Security Administration on your behalf, the professionals at the Law Office Of Jeffrey W. Johnson will stop at nothing to ensure that your claim is effectively managed.
If your disability claim was denied, you have the option to request a reconsideration. If your application is denied following your request for reconsideration, you can appeal the decision. The appeals process involves a hearing where you provide witnesses and medical evidence to prove your disability to an administrative law judge.
Having a legal professional by your side to help you fight the denial of your claim will be critical to the success of your reconsideration or appeal. Make sure you have access to the best legal representation available by working with the Law Office Of Jeffrey W. Johnson to get the benefits you are entitled to.
Our dedicated legal team will be with you every step of the way as you seek disability benefits.
