Social Security Disability

Social Security Disability Insurance is a program offered by the U.S. government through the Social Security Administration. It provides monetary benefits to you if you are unable to work as a result of a health condition or injury. You pay into the insurance program as you work as part of your tax payments.

Support Throughout the Process

The road to a favorable outcome for a Social Security Disability claim can be long and arduous. Although it starts with an initial application, it may include rounds of consideration, hearings, and appeals. At Roberts Markland LLP, our lawyers support you and your family throughout the entire process. This gives you the best chance of a quick decision with a favorable outcome, so your family can move on with their lives without having to worry if and when the Social Security Disability application will be approved.

Administrative Law Judge Hearing

One of the best ways that you can increase your chances is to have an experienced attorney to request a hearing before an Administrative Law Judge for an ALJ Hearing. If your application is denied, you can request reconsideration from the federal district court. Since a large number of disability applications are denied at the ALJ Hearing level, it’s important to ask for reconsideration with the assistance of a skilled attorney who understands the ins and outs of the process.

Get Off to the Best Start

Many Social Security Disability applicants only seek legal assistance once they have scheduled an ALJ hearing or need to go to the federal district court. However, it is much better for you to have worked with an attorney from the initial application. The Social Security Disability attorney will be able to review your application and possibly shorten the amount of time that it takes to process the application by helping you avoid known pitfalls.

Additionally, there are some representatives that provide administrative support without a legal background. It’s vital that you only work with a licensed attorney with the experience needed to navigate the process. You don’t need someone just to help you with the paperwork, you need someone who understands state and federal guidelines for Social Security Disability and can represent you if you are required to go to court. 

Updated Knowledge

The laws about Social Security can change. It is important that you work with an attorney that’s knowledgeable about any changes that impact your Social Security Disability claim. This includes an attorney that keeps informed about new updates, consistently works on Social Security Disability applications who offers first hand experience, and attends industry conferences and seminars.

To have the best chance of having your Social Security Disability claim approved, you need an attorney that’s highly experienced in the process. This saves you time and helps you get the support you’re entitled to. Contact Roberts Markland LLP by calling (713) 630-0900 to schedule an appointment to discuss your case. We’re here to help you get the representation you need to successfully complete your Social Security Disability claim.
