Sacramento Social Security Disability Lawyer
Offering Powerful, Dynamic Legal Representation in Disability Claims
Under federal law, if you are, or are expected to be, off work continuously for a 12-month period because of a physical or mental impairment that prevents you from working, you can be awarded Social Security Disability benefits. While this sounds simple, filing for Social Security benefits can be very challenging. The Social Security Administration (SSA) denies many initial applications and appeals. If you are thinking about filing a claim for benefits, or if your claim has been denied, you probably have many questions, such as:
- How do I complete my application?
- What are the required standards for obtaining disability benefits?
- Why do some disability claims take longer than others?
