Social Security is a Right, but is Often Something You Must Fight For

By Lipton Law on September 28, 2012 - No comments

Macomb County SSDI ApplicationIn the 1930’s, the United States made a commitment to take care of its elderly, less fortunate, and disabled through deductions to wage earners’ income. As long as you were working, you paid into the Social Security system. You knew that should you need it, the fund was there to pay for your living expenses and even your recuperation should you become disabled. However, obtaining Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits is a complex and often stressful process. Proving disability typically requires the proper medical evidence and if your medical condition doesn’t fit the specific criteria established by the Social Security Administration (SSA), then you may not be eligible for benefits.

Applying for SSDI benefits or filing a claim for appeal frequently makes individuals dizzy with frustration. There is a lot to keep track of when pursuing benefits on top of ensuring that proper medical care and treatment is being obtained for your disability. To ensure that you don’t miss any steps in the application or appeals process, you may want to consult with an experienced attorney.

Coping with a disability is extremely challenging for an individual as well as his or her family. More often than not, finances are an issue when steep medical bills must be paid or when the primary wage-earner is no longer able to work.
