Filing for disability benefits on your own can be a difficult process. Our Social Security attorneys have extensive experience navigating the maze of bureaucratic regulations that govern the filing of social security disability claims. A minor error could jeopardize your application. When you are unable to work, you cannot afford to make an error that jeopardizes your eligibility for disability benefits. A Social Security Law Center attorney can answer your questions regarding the process.

Whether You Qualify for Benefits

If you are unable to work due to a medical condition that is expected to last at least one year or lead to death, you may be eligible for disability benefits. Because federal law has a very strict definition of disability, you need a social security attorney to review your potential case. In certain circumstances, family members of a disabled applicant may be eligible for compensation.

The 5-Step Test

Every application is unique and different. However, the SSA has a 5-step test to determine whether an individual is eligible for the benefits.
