Need a Social Security Disability Lawyer?
If you suffer from a physical or mental health condition that prevents you from working for a year or more, you may be eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSD) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI). If you have been injured in the workplace, you may qualify for workers’ compensation benefits. Unfortunately, even qualified applicants are sometimes denied the benefits they need to survive financially. By working with disability attorneys, people who are applying for benefits may be able to secure the legal expertise and support they deserve. If you need an SSI or SSD lawyer in Philadelphia and Harrisburg area or Cherry Hill, NJ area, turn to the law office of Lisa M. Ritacco.
Social Security Disability Benefits
SSD and SSI benefits are paid for by tax dollars and your contributions. During your working life, some of your earnings go towards these programs. Of course, if you become ill or are seriously disabled and need these benefits to pay for everyday bills, you expect SSD and SSI compensation to be there for you.
Unfortunately, in many cases, applicants who are legitimately injured and unable to work are denied the benefits that are supposed to help them. In fact, about two-thirds of disability claims are denied on the initial application.
