If a disease, condition or disability limits or prevents you from employment, you may be eligible to receive government assistance in the form of Social Security Disability benefits, also known as “SSDI” or Title II benefits, provided you have an adequate work history. If you do not have enough work “quarters” to qualify for SSDI benefits you may qualify for Supplemental Security Income benefits known as “SSI” or Title XVI benefits. SSI benefits are available to individuals who do not have enough work quarters and meet certain income and assets criteria.
In most cases you must be suffering from a condition that has or will prevent you from being employed for at least 12 months, or a condition that will result in your death. While that might sound clear cut, the truth is that the process of securing disability benefits is usually a very lengthy and tedious process. Most SSD and SSI applicants are denied benefits when they first apply. You must then pursue several levels of appeals, but a denial at any one level or a past denial may not disqualify you from receiving benefits
Tarpon Springs Social Security Disability Attorney Byron Broun may be able to help you get and keep the disability benefits you need. Our services cover a variety of common situations associated with benefits from the Social Security Administration.
The Appeals Process
The Social Security Administration denies many of the initial applications it receives for disability programs. If this happens to you, you will need to go through the appeals process and will likely have to appear in front of an Administrative Law Judge to argue why you deserve benefits.
Byron Broun can handle the appeals process for you by:
- Requesting your appeals hearing
- Preparing your case for the appeals hearing
- Collecting additional medical evidence or other proof of your claim
- Investigating why your claim was denied
- Representing you with Administrative Law Judge hearing
- Helping obtain the benefits you deserve
Mr. Broun has represented people with numerous debilitating conditions that could prevent someone from working. After handling many SSD and SSI cases over the years, Attorney Byron Broun is familiar with many of the problems which prevent individuals from working. For example:
- Neck problems
- Back problems
- Digestive problems
- Heart problems
- Breathing problems
- Mental illness
- Post-traumatic stress disorder
- Diabetic neuropathy
- Bipolar disorder
- Panic attacks
- Spinal cord injuries
- Joint swelling
- Multiple sclerosis
If any of the above conditions, or another medical condition, renders you disabled and unable to work for a permanent or indefinite period of time, which is expected to exceed one year or more, then you may be entitled to Social Security Disability benefits. This form of monthly compensation, which is administered by the federal government, offers financial support for individuals who have paid into the benefits system by working for a specified period of time, and who later have become disabled and unable to work.
With the assistance of Tarpon Springs disability attorney Byron Broun, you may be able to get the benefits for which you are qualified.
With more than 20 years of experience handling Social Security Disability claims, Byron Broun is prepared to assist you with the type of competent and caring representation you deserve. Mr. Broun invites you to develop an actual relationship with your attorney instead of meeting your attorney for the first time on the day of your hearing. There has been a proliferation of large law firms and advocacy companies entering into the practice of Social Security disability law over the past few years because of the number of claimants seeking disability benefits. These firms do not possess the requisite experience necessary to furnish you with the representation you deserve. They inundate the media with advertising designed to create a volume business and convince you that they are best suited to properly present your claim.
Do not be fooled! Ask the attorney or representative how many claims they have handled and test their knowledge about your particular disability. Do not let slick advertising or a fancy pamphlet fool you into making the wrong decision when hiring someone to represent you in a matter as important to you as your disability claim.
