Pursue Your Disability Case
Professional Social Security Disability Lawyer: Marchese Injury Law is located in Portland, Maine.
If you become disabled, you may be eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance, a program administered by the federal Social Security Administration. Benefits also may be payable to your widow and children, after your death.
When you are determined to be eligible for 24 months of SSDI, you are entitled to Medicare at a nominal cost (currently $96.40 a month).
You should apply for Social Security Disability benefits as soon as possible after you become disabled and unable to work. If you are getting sick pay from your employer or short term/long term disability from an insurance company, you do not have to wait until these payments end before filing a claim for disability benefits.
You can fill out an application for Social Security Disability benefits at the local Social Security office nearest to your home, or you can apply online by visiting the SSA website, or by telephone.
Once you file an application for benefits, your case is sent to a disability examiner. If the claim is denied, APPEAL! Nationally, about 70% of applicants ultimately receive benefits if they continue through the appeals process, most often with the aid of their attorney.
Hire an attorney as soon as possible, preferably as soon as your initial application is denied. Your Attorney can begin developing ways to prove to the Social Security Administration that you are disabled.
