Many times people feel that the system is working against them-paperwork for federal programs seems never-ending and complicated and it is commonly accepted that most people are rejected when they file for Social Security Disability benefits for the first time. When one already has limited financial resources and a disability preventing them from earning a stable income and enjoying life, it can seem even more frustrating and that the tiles are stacked against one.
California residents familiar with the SSD benefits process are probably aware that it takes a great deal of time and effort to collect one’s documents for filing a claim and when a rejection results, people either feel highly disheartened and give up or end up sending the same documents all over again, without reviewing them for possible mistakes. This could be because a lay-person cannot recognize what mistakes they have made-if they could, they would have probably not made them in the first time.
At times like this, lawyers at our firm can prove highly helpful. With around 15-years of legal experience, including work with low-income people disabled people, our founding lawyer uses their experience and knowledge in their client’s favor. We understand what is at stake for those applying and explain the process to those who have applied. We review rejections and help clients get the benefits they deserve.
Getting through the appeals process on one’s own can be daunting and having someone by one’s side during the administrative hearing can be reassuring. Knowing someone is in your corner and prioritizing your best interests is also reassuring. We do both. Visit our page for more information.
