Social Security Disability Lawyer in Gwinnett, Georgia
A Gwinnett SSI/SSD Attorney can help you get the Benefits you needNo one likes to think that they may suffer from a disability, but every day people fall ill or are injured either at work or elsewhere. Whether your disability is mental or physical you will probably need to apply through the Social Security Administration (SSA) for disabled benefits. For the best chance of having your SSI SSDI application approved a disability lawyer is recommended, especially if have already been turned down for a social security disability benefit.
You can contact the SSA offices for Gwinnett County here:
Decatur, GA 30034-1433
Or call the Social Security Administration’s national toll-free number at 1-800-772-1213.
It is important to gather all the documentation you need and to file your SSI or SSDI claim quickly and accurately. Any errors will mean more delays in getting your disabled benefits approved. Don’t be discouraged if the SSA turns you down initially either. They have very strict criteria and only around 30% of social security disability benefits go through at the initial stage. There is quite a complicated 5 step process that the SSA uses to decide whether you can be declared disabled and the younger you are the more difficult it tends to be to have an SSDI claim accepted.
It can take just a few weeks to get your disabled benefits up and running, or it could take a year or more. It really depends on your particular case, whether the SSA hearing dates are backlogged, and how effectively you (or your disability advocate) present your case.
Gwinnett, Georgia Disability Benefits
The number of people on social security disability benefits in Gwinnett more than doubled between 1999 and 2006. There has been an increase particularly on the number of females needing to be declared disabled. This is probably a reflection of more women being in the workforce and also taking on what were once considered ‘male’ positions.
The majority of Gwinnett residents are home owners and are also paying a mortgage. It can be very difficult to meet those costs and probably extra medical expenses too, when you suddenly find yourself out of a job due to illness or injury. Some people of course will have enough insurance to cover themselves for the minimum five month stand down required by the SSA before receiving SSDI and workers compensation may also come into play. To avoid any delays and to make sure that you receive all that you are entitled to it is still a good idea to make use of an experienced and professional disability attorney. If you are going to be struggling financially this is even more important.
