Social Security

Have you heard that it's "impossible" to get approved for disability benefits through social security? Have you applied for social security disability and been denied? Are you thinking about applying for social security and don't know where to start? We can help.

Social security disability is a program that provides monthly cash payments to workers who are no longer able to work due to a disability. Although many people may be eligible for these benefits, it is estimated that up to 70% of applications are initially denied.

A claim for social security may be denied for many reasons - you may not have filled out the application correctly; the medical records may not be sufficient to support your claim; your impairments may not be clear enough to allow an examiner to see how you are disabled.

At Howard & McBeath, we know how to help our clients get the benefits that they are entitled to. We communicate with your doctors, assist you to fill out the necessary paperwork, and review your records to see if there is information that is unclear. We have a registered nurse review every medical file, and we analyze it all in light of relevant social security law to make sure that you have the best chance possible for a favorable decision. There is no charge to you for our time if you are not approved.

If you have been denied benefits, or if you are thinking about filing for benefits, give us a call today and let us tell you how we can help you. Remember, you only have 60 days to appeal a denial, so let us know right away if you need help!
