Social Security Disability Benefits
Social Security is a program introduced under the Social Security Act by the government that provides financial support to retirees, survivors, spouses, and dependent children, as well as disabled individuals. In order for you to avail yourself of disability benefits, you need to show that you have been unable to work for consecutive 12 months because of your medical condition. Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is funded by payroll taxes and is regulated by the federal government. This program is designed for disabled workers as a means of regular income.
However, filing and getting your application for SSD benefits can be challenging, as the Social Security Administration (SSA) has strict criteria for eligibility and claims approval. Our experienced attorney has over 30 years of experience in fighting for the rights of disabled workers and knows the ways to get Social Security disability claims approved.
Veterans’ Social Security Disability Benefits
Veterans’ Social Security disability compensation is a financial benefit that the government pays to military veterans who have become disabled during their service. There are several types of benefits available based on the individual circumstances and needs of the recipient. They may include hospitalization, dental, clothing allowance, birth defects, and automobile allowance.
At Harold W. Conick & Associates Ltd., we assist clients to make claims for a number of conditions, including PTSD, agent orange, total disability individual unemployability (TDIU), gulf war syndrome, psychiatric disability, traumatic brain injury, and other issues and disabilities. If you are a military veteran suffering a war-inflicted injury or disability, our attorneys can help you file a disability claim. We will aggressively fight for your rights in case your claim is denied by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs.
