Social Security Disability Lawyer in Marietta, Georgia
What a Marietta SSI/SSD Attorney can do for your Disability Benefits
Injury or illness can strike at any time. Not only are you likely to be suffering physical or mental pain but the chances are you may also find your self unable to work and with no income. To add insult to injury (or illness) you apply for a social security disability benefit only to be turned down. Knowing that this happens to other people too is small consolation, but it can help to remember you are not the only one. If you have been turned down on your initial SSI SSDI application don’t worry. A good disability lawyer can help you get the social security disability benefits you deserve.
If you wish to contact the SSA (social security administration) their Marietta offices are located at:
Marietta, GA 30067-8774
Or call the Social Security Administration’s national toll-free number at 1-800-772-1213.
You will want to get your SSI SSDI claim forms in as soon as possible as the sooner you are declared disabled the sooner you will have some form of income. It is not enough just to have a letter from your doctor saying you are disabled and can’t work. The SSA has a strict set of criteria that they use and it is quite probable that your initial claim will be rejected. You then have 60 days to file for appeal.
If you do need to file for an SSI SSDI appeal it can certainly be to your advantage to have a disability advocate who understands the ins and outs of disability benefits law. If you are near or over 50 and your disability is particularly severe you may be able to persevere and win your claim without assistance. Most people find they need a little (or a lot) of help though if they are going to finally be granted a social security disability benefit. Social security administration benefits are not given out lightly and can become quite complicated. You will be given a fair hearing but unless you are up with the play on what really counts and how your impairment is judged it can be frustrating exercise that may well end in nothing.
Marietta, Georgia Disability Benefits
Construction, and transport are both potentially high injury risk occupations and the rate of disabilities in Marietta is around 1 in every 4 residents between the ages of 21 and 64. Most people in these areas also have access to workers compensation (even though obviously not all accidents or illnesses occur at or through work). If you do become disabled through work and are entitled to worker’s compensation this won’t affect any SSDI claim you have but it may well impact on an SSI (supplemental security income) as you need to have a limited income and less than $2,000 in assets as an individual - $3,000 for couples.
Choosing to use an experienced disability lawyer is probably the best way to go if you want to be sure of winning your SSI SSDI appeal and it is not as expensive as many people think (certainly cheaper than getting into debt as the bills keep coming in). No win – no fee tends to work in everyone’s favor.
