Do you have a serious physical disability or mental health condition that
prevents you from obtaining full-time employment? Has this disability
or condition lasted for at least a year—or expected to last at least
that much time? Did you lose your benefits?
If you answered “yes” to one or more of these questions, you
may be entitled to Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits.
However, it is not uncommon for the government to deny legitimate claims.
At Herbert Chestnut & Associates, we are committed to helping our clients
get the benefits they deserve. With nearly four decades of legal experience, our
Jacksonville SSD attorney can collect the proper information, handle all the paperwork, work with
your doctors, and help you obtain your entitled benefits.
Qualifications for Social Security Disability Benefits
Social Security disability (SSD) is part of the Federal Social Security
Act, which enables those who cannot work collect disability payments and
other benefits such as cash payments and medical coverage. So, if you’ve
been permanently disabled in an accident or currently suffer a debilitating
physical or mental injury, you may be eligible for such benefits.
You must demonstrate to the Social Security Administration (SSA) that you
have enough “credits”—or worked enough hours and paid
enough FICA taxes— to obtain SSD benefits. However, if you fail
to acquire enough credits, you may still be eligible for Supplemental
Security Income (SSI).
Next, you must prove that your disability is serious enough to keep you
away from working a regular paying job for 12 months. Unfortunately, most
initial claims are denied since the SSA considers most injuries as temporary
in nature or not serious enough to prevent claimants from working.
Having a skilled attorney on your side can substantially increase the chance
of being approved. If your initial claim was denied, then a lawyer can
help you appeal your case and fight for the insurance you deserve.
