How do I get Social Security Disability Benefits
The vast majority of disabled persons who apply for Social Security Disability benefits, regardless of their medical condition, are denied disability benefits on their initial application. Many of those applying for disability benefits believe that given the Social Security Administration’s opinion that they are not entitled to Social Security Disability benefit here in Alabama, but that is not necessarily the case. If you are denied Social Security Disability benefits, don’t give up, you really should call an experienced Alabama Social Security Disability Lawyer.
The Social Security Administration simply does not have the resources to contact all of the physicians or counselors who have treated you through the years and they rarely ask the pertinent questions of your treating physicians as to how your condition(s) effect your ability to engage in full time substantial gainful employment. Your best chance at getting awarded Social Security Disability benefits in Alabama is had in appealing the initial rejection, and remember, you only have 60 days in which to appeal your case. If you have been denied disability benefits, contact an Alabama Disability Lawyer immediately.
In order to be entitled to Social Security Disability benefits in Alabama, you must meet the Social Security Administration’s definition of being disabled. In a nut shell, to be considered disabled, your condition(s) must (i) create a medically determinable physical or mental disability (ii) which has lasted, or is reasonably expected to last at least 12 continuous months or end in death and (iii) is so severe that it prevents you from being able to (a) engage in your previous substantial work and (b) prevents you from being able to engage in other suitable full time work given your age, education and past job experience.
If you live in Alabama and you have been denied Social Security Disability benefits, but you believe that you meet the legal definition of disabled, don’t give up.
