Social Security Disability Oklahoma

Are you disabled and can no longer work? If so, you may be eligible for social security disability benefits. Contact an experienced social security lawyer with an in-depth understanding of the system because obtaining social security disability benefits can sometimes be challenging. 

We can help you get the disability benefits you deserve

Generally, social security disability benefits are available to people who worked for a specific period of time  and their health conditions are severe enough to prevent them from working or engaging in their usual occupational activities. SSDI benefits can help you finance the required medical treatment and other changes to your lifestyle. For instance, if you suffered a spinal cord injury, you may be unable to  work due to the inability to sit, stand, walk or lift for 8 hours a day, 5 days a week thereby entitling you to benefits.

Supplemental security income is a similar program. However, SSI benefits are only available to individuals who meet the income and asset requirements in addition to being unable to work due to their conditions . If you feel that you are eligible for social security disability benefits or supplemental security income benefits, consult with an experienced attorney from our law firm. He or she will fight for your rights during disability hearings.

Are you eligible for SSDI benefits?

Most Oklahoma residents don’t know the medical conditions and disabilities that qualify a person for social security disability benefits. Health conditions like blindness are often recognized as a type of disability that qualifies a person for social security disability benefits. Keep in mind that every case is evaluated individually. But in all cases, some standards must be met, such as the one that states that your condition(s) must prevent you from being able to work for a full 12 months or longer or be terminal.

Some of the medical conditions and disabilities that commonly lead to social security disability benefits include:

  • Crohn’s disease
  • Blindness
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Chronic pain syndrome
  • Heart disease
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Paralysis
  • Severed limbs
  • Reflex sympathetic dystrophy
  • Stroke
  • Rheumatoid arthritis

It is essential to mention that your social security disability claim can be denied even when you have one of the health conditions mentioned. This happens if you make critical errors during the application process or omit important health-related or employment-related information. To avoid instances of having your application denied, contact us. Our social security lawyers have many years of experience in handling SSD claims. You can count on us to get the amount of compensation you deserve. 

What if your SSDI claim was denied? 

If your social security disability claim was denied, don’t panic. You can still appeal. However, the social security disability claim application and appeal process are so frustrating to people who choose to do it alone. It is very common for the claim to be denied due to simple mistakes that you could have avoided. Besides, the social security administration gets more than 2.5 million claim applications annually and denies most of their initial applicants.

However, do not give up just because your initial application was denied. Our lawyers know the system very well and can help you prepare a disability claim by gathering all essential documents and records and sticking to the set deadlines.

If you are not eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) under the work requirements, you may still be able to receive benefits through other programs. As an American with a disability, you may be eligible for Supplemental Security Income (SSI), a secondary program designed to help citizens with disabilities with demonstrated financial need.
