Understanding The Process For Getting Disability Benefits

Getting the disability benefits you need in a timely manner can be difficult, especially if you try to navigate the process on your own. At Debra L. Broz, Attorneys at Law, PLC, we can help. Our legal team will handle all the legwork for you, taking swift action to get you the benefits you need as quickly as possible.

Getting Medical Treatment

You should always seek prompt medical treatment for any health condition you're facing. This step is critical not only for your well-being, but also for documenting your health history, which may be vital to your application for Social Security Disability (SSD)/Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits. The right doctor or specialist can provide you with a thorough evaluation of your condition and other key evidence for determining whether you have a qualifying disability.

Submitting The Initial Application

To receive SSD/SSI benefits, you must file a detailed claim (application) along with supporting documentation. This initial step in the process can be challenging. Mistakes can delay your benefits or result in an outright denial. Our lawyers can walk you through the steps for preparing a strong application, taking the stress and uncertainty out of the process.

Appealing A Claim Denial

What if your initial application was denied? Fortunately, you may have another opportunity to present your case by requesting reconsideration and, if that fails, an administrative hearing. We know how to document the right evidence to support your claim. Find out more about how we can help you overcome a claim denial.
