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.
