Detroit Social Security Attorneys

For millions of Americans, Social Security disability benefits are essential to their ability to make ends meet. Workers who suffer from a disabling condition, whether as a result of disease, the permanent consequence of a car accident or other serious incident, or from mental illness, can find it difficult or impossible to maintain steady employment, and many employers may refuse these individuals a job. Therefore, Social Security disability benefits are critical to providing support for those in this situation.

Unfortunately, the process of applying for and receiving Social Security disability benefits can be difficult, particularly for individuals with difficult-to-diagnose conditions and those who may already be receiving limited compensation in other forms, such as workers’ compensation benefits. If you have a disabling condition and need to apply for Social Security disability benefits, the Detroit legal team at Ravid & Associates, P.C., knows how important receiving these benefits may be for you and your family, and we can increase your chances of securing the assistance you need.

Qualifying for Social Security Benefits

Social Security disability benefits have a rigorous application process, and applicants must first demonstrate that they meet the eligibility criteria in order to be approved for benefits. Some of these qualifying factors include:

  • Previous work history
  • Individual’s medical condition
  • Beginning of condition’s appearance
  • Medical documentation of condition

These and other factors must be fully and properly accounted for in order for an individual’s application to be successful. The help of qualified legal assistance when filling out the application for benefits can help to avoid any problems which may delay approval.
