Serving Chester, Delaware and Montgomery County, PA since 1983
Are you unable to work because of a disability? Social Security disability insurance (SSDI) exists to provide individuals like you with income. At Platt, DiGiorgio & DiFabio, we realize the pain and frustration a disabling injury can cause, and we want to help you obtain Social Security disability benefits. Each Social Security disability attorney at our Paoli law firm is compassionate, experienced and hardworking. No matter how complex or difficult your case may seem, we are up for the challenge.
Qualifying for Social Security disability benefits
To qualify to receive SSDI, you must first have worked at a job that was covered by Social Security. Second, your medical condition must meet the Social Security Administration (SSA) definition of disability.
According to the SSA, a person is considered to be disabled under the following circumstances:
- You cannot do work that you did before
- The SSA decides that you cannot adjust to other work because of your medical condition
- Your disability has lasted or is expected to last for at least one-year or to result in death
It is important for you to realize that your continuing eligibility to receive SSDI is subject to change. If your condition improves, you are no longer disabled, and you can return to work, the SSA can cancel your benefits.
Additionally, you may choose to return to work on your own rather than depend on SSDI.
Why you need a lawyer
Statistics show that the majority of claims for SSDI are denied. Experienced workers comp lawyers at our firm can help you prepare your disability case. In addition, we have a deep understanding of SSDI law. If your initial claim is denied, we can assist you in requesting a hearing before the administrative law judge, or ALJ. We can also gather and assess your medical records. This is important to your case for if your records are inconsistent or incomplete, the ALJ may deny your claim. To further bolster your case, we can contact your physician to obtain a written statement describing your condition and ability to work.
