Savannah SSDI Attorney

Helping Georgians Seek Disability Benefits

Have you been affected by a disability that has impacted your ability to work? You may be eligible for SSDI benefits.

Social Security Disability Insurance – or SSDI – is a federal insurance program offered by the U.S. government that provides financial support to disabled Americans. Unfortunately, the process to apply for benefits under this program can be confusing and difficult to navigate.

At Herbert Chestnut & Associates, we want to help you get the benefits you deserve. Let us help you file a claim. We can also assist with appeals if your initial claim has been denied.

Don’t hesitate to call our Savannah SSDI attorney today at (770) 285-5542 for a free consultation. We look forward to working with you.

How to Apply for SSDI Benefits

There are three ways to apply for benefits: Over the phone, in person, or online. In all three scenarios, you will need to complete the necessary application paperwork.

To qualify for benefits, you must:

  • Have a condition that meets the definition of a disability, as defined by the Social Security program
  • Have worked jobs that are covered by Social Security
  • Have earned a certain number of Social Security work credits, which are determined by the wages you have earned through Social Security-eligible jobs

The process of proving eligibility can be tough, so it is in your best interest to retain a competent and knowledgeable attorney who understands how to communicate your condition to the Social Security program.

Your condition will qualify as a disability if:

  • It prevents you from performing the work you did before
  • You cannot adjust to other types of work because of your medical condition
  • Your disability is expected to last for at least one year or result in death

Appealing Denied Claims

Unfortunately, many SSDI claims are initially denied. The good news is that you still have the chance to appeal a denied claim. In order to appeal a decision, you will have to attend a hearing in front of an administrative law judge. We highly recommend retaining our Savannah SSDI attorney to represent you at this hearing. We can build a strong case on your behalf to argue for the appropriate benefits you deserve.
