Connecticut Social Security Disability Lawyers Are Here to Help You
Most people think of Social Security as the benefit that all Americans receive once they hit the age of retirement. But for many people, Social Security is a benefit that becomes invaluable in case disability strikes. We rarely think about disability happening to us, but the truth is that injury and disabling illness strike one out of four people in the United States before they reach the age of 67, and if it happens to you, then you will likely need to apply for Social Security Disability benefits. Unfortunately, these benefits are not as easy to qualify for as they should be. Many claims are denied, even when the person who applies for them truly deserves the benefit. If that happens to you, call Jonathan Perkins Injury Lawyers. We are Connecticut Social Security disability lawyers who are here to help you get the benefits that you deserve.
There are a lot of things that you should know when applying for Social Security disability benefits, but possibly the most important of all is that the system can be extremely complicated and it is easy to make mistakes and to get frustrated. The best way to avoid the system and get the benefits that you deserve as quickly as possible is to work with an experienced Connecticut Social Security disability lawyer who can get it done right the first time, reduce your stress and anxiety, and get you the payments that you need fast.
In order to qualify for Social Security Disability, you need to have paid enough taxes into the trust fund. Doing so is thought to be essentially the same as paying an insurance premium. Yet only one-third of all people who file Social Security Disability claims are immediately approved. That means that two-thirds of those who apply receive denials of their application and are either required to simply give up or to file an appeal. That appeal can again be rejected and re-appealed to a Social Security Administrative Law Judge for consideration.
If you are not one of the lucky few whose claim received immediate approval, then the Connecticut Social Security disability lawyers at Jonathan Perkins Injury Lawyers can help. Whether your problem is that you filed your claim beyond the deadline, were told that your claim was prepared improperly, or simply were told that you did not qualify, we will take the time to review your situation and documentation and then go file an appeal on your behalf to get you the benefits that you have paid for and that you deserve.
If you have a disability that is keeping you from working and supporting yourself and your family, then you may be entitled to Social Security Disability benefits. Contact us today to set up a consultation to discuss your circumstances and see how Jonathan Perkins Injury Lawyers can help.
