Social Security Disability

College Park Social Security Disability Lawyer

Gaithersburg SSD and SSI Benefits Attorney

Social Security Disability (SSD) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) were established in the 1930’s to provide a safety net for people who cannot work or who can no longer work due to a physical and/or emotional disability. Every American worker pays into the Social Security system. Yet many people find that when they actually apply for SSD or SSI benefits, their claim is denied.

You shouldn’t need a lawyer to get the benefits you’ve paid for your whole working life. Unfortunately, the system has evolved in such a way that the process of applying for disability benefits is difficult and more people are denied than approved – at least the first time around.

Don’t give up – Get help

If you’ve been denied Social Security disability, do not give up. That’s when the assistance of an experienced SSD lawyer can be invaluable. I have a very high success rate in obtaining Social Security Disability benefits for disabled clients, even in cases where their benefits were initially denied.

For more than 37 years I have been successfully helping people appeal SSD or SSI benefit denials at any stage of the process. At the Law Offices of Steven M. Jacoby in College Park, Maryland, I represent people in Gaithersburg, and surrounding communities in Maryland, Washington, D.C. and Virginia.

Filing for reconsideration with SSD or SSI

You’ve got 60 days to file for reconsideration after your SSD benefit denial. If you fail to appeal your SSDI denial during that time, you will be required to wait for a period of time and then begin the process again from the beginning.

While a valid claim may eventually result in getting SSD benefits, how long can you wait without that financial benefit? Most people who apply for SSD cannot wait any longer than necessary. As your lawyer, I will help you through every step of the Social Security appeals process:

  • Filing forms to initiate your appeal
  • Obtaining the necessary medical and vocational documents to support your claim for disability benefits
  • Preparing you for the hearing and appearing with you at the administrative hearing
  • Preparing follow-up documents should your case need to be appealed to an Administrative Law Judge or to a higher level
