What is Social Security Disability?
The United States Social Security Disability (SSD) system was set up to provide assistance to those who cannot work due to a physical, mental, or emotional disability. If you are an employee who paid social security taxes and you are now disabled, then you are likely eligible for SSD financial assistance. Jeffrey Goldblatt can assist you with the application or the appeals process and fight to secure compensation on your behalf.
As many as 70 percent of claims for SSD income are denied, often because the need for benefits was not adequately demonstrated. With more than 30 years of experience representing disabled social security applicants, attorney Jeffrey Goldblatt understands how to obtain the necessary evidence and testimony to prove disability. He offers legal assistance on a contingency basis and will work tirelessly to help secure the benefits you deserve.
Candidacy for Disability
There are several categories of disability that can qualify an applicant for SSD benefits, including trauma-related injuries, chronic diseases, sensory impairments, and mental disorders. Qualification for SSD income is based on the degree and severity of disability and your individual earning capacity. As an experienced social security attorney, Mr. Goldblatt fully understands the SSD system and can provide invaluable legal counsel and representation.
The Appeals Process
After an application for SSD benefits is denied, you have a right to request reconsideration within 60 days. If you are again denied, your appeal can be heard by an administrative law judge, and even that decision can sometimes be further appealed. At the Law Offices of Jeffrey W. Goldblatt Esq., we can help you put together comprehensive documentation and argue effectively on your behalf to obtain the best possible outcome.
