Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits are often a vital form of financial support for those in Okeechobee who have been become disabled and are no longer able to work. At Steinger, Iscoe & Greene, we understand how important your SSD claim can be to the financial security of you and your dependents. Our firm has been providing competent legal assistance to the injured and disabled throughout South Florida since 1997. We know Social Security Disability law thoroughly, the procedures involved in making and winning a claim, and how the Social Security Administration (SSA) operates. Our overriding goal is to help you secure every dollar you deserve in benefits. Backed by our years of experience, extensive knowledge, and our commitment to outstanding client service, your chances for success in the claims process will be dramatically improved.
According to the SSA, a 20-year-old joining the job force has a 25 percent likelihood of becoming disabled before making it to retirement. For a majority of these people, SSD can make the difference between poverty and financial security. Yet the denial rate is high for those making an initial claim for benefits into a federal system they have paid into throughout their working lives. The claims application process can be complicated and confusing, requiring extensive paperwork and documentation, subject to deadlines, and takes a long time to process. If your application for benefits has not been submitted properly, you run the high risk of a delay or denial which is why working with an experienced attorney is crucial.
If you have already submitted a claim in Okeechobee and have been denied, it does not automatically mean that you are ineligible. You should not give up. Even those who meet all requirements for benefits are often denied. With the help of a capable legal professional, you can pursue the benefits you truly deserve through an appeal.
Our firm thoroughly understands what is needed to present your claim with the compelling evidence required for an approval. We are also experienced in representing you in the appeals process. We know what questions to ask your medical doctors and how to get the detailed information that the SSA will respond to, how to track down important records and lab results, what SSA judges are looking for, how SSA regulations apply to your case, as well as how prior SSA rulings may affect your claim.
