Social Security Disability

Federal and state governments offer Social Security disability benefits to those suffering from severe physical disabilities, mental disabilities or conditions that are expected to last at least 12 months or result in death, including heart failure, schizophrenia and arthritis.

The process of filing for these benefits, however, can be a long and arduous one. Nearly all claimants are denied their first and second claims, with most having to appear before an administrative law judge to get approval. This in turn can cause significant delays in benefits, sometimes as long as several years.

Not Sure If You’re Eligible To Receive Benefits?

In order to receive government assistance, you need to be able to prove that you’re eligible — that your condition or disability is serious enough to prevent you from gaining employment for one year or more. There are also other factors the SSA considers before granting benefits, including:

  • Age and education level
  • Compliance with medical treatment
  • Daily routine and activities
  • Work experience

The SSA also checks whether your condition or disability is listed in their regulations handbook, and attempts to determine whether you are capable of performing lighter types of work.

Whether you are new to the Social Security benefits process or your initial application for benefits was denied, you can count on the attorneys at Greene & Schultz to help you obtain the benefits you deserve. Call us today at 812-336-4357 or contact us online.
