Easton Social Security Disability Attorney

Helping You Work to Recover Your Rightful Benefits

The federal government offers Social Security disability (SSD) benefits if you have a qualifying medical condition that makes it difficult for you to work. The application process may seem straightforward, but the majority of initial requests for benefits are denied. You may need a lawyer to help you through the challenging process of SSD approval.

At Meshkov & Breslin, our Easton Social Security disability attorney, Adam D. Meshkov, can help establish your need for benefits and fight your claim denial. Reach out to us today to learn more about how we can assist you with your SSD matter.

Call our office at (610) 285-1963 or submit an online contact form to request a complimentary consultation.

Qualifying for Social Security Disability Benefits

If you are suffering from a severe physical or mental impairment that interferes with your ability to work, you may be eligible for Social Security disability benefits.

To do so, you must meet the Social Security Administration’s definition of disability:

  • You cannot do work that you did before
  • You cannot adjust to other work because of your medical condition
  • Your disability has lasted or is expected to last for at least one year or to result in death

Certain qualifying conditions make you automatically eligible for SSD benefits. Other serious conditions are considered on a case-by-case basis. After you file your claim, you will be scheduled for an interview with an SSD claims representative to further demonstrate your need.

What to Do If Your SSD Claim Is Denied

You will receive a written decision from the Social Security Administration around three to six months after filing your application. If your benefits are denied, you should immediately contact our experienced SSD lawyer in Easton.

He can personally represent you and challenge the denial of your claim, guiding you through a series of steps:

  • Written request for reconsideration
  • Social Security disability hearing
  • Appearance before the Social Security Appeals Council
  • Lawsuit in federal court

Extensive documentation is required to overturn an SSD claim denial. Many cases are successfully resolved by our lawyer at the hearing stage, but he is prepared to take your case all the way to federal district court if necessary.
