Legal Support When You Face A Frustrating And Discouraging Social Security Disability/SSI Process

Applying for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits is a complicated and highly discouraging process. Seemingly, as a rule, all initial applications are rejected, a decision that frustrates applicants. However, you are not alone, as approximately three-quarters of applicants receive immediate denials.

Sadly, many choose to give up, thinking that the final “verdict” has been rendered. But with the help of an experienced attorney, you can obtain the benefits you need and deserve.

We Are At Your Side

At Fuller Wallner, Attorneys at Law, our lawyers possess experience and insight into the complex and in-depth knowledge of the SSD process. We strive to protect the rights of our Bemidji and Greater Minnesota residents suffering from disabilities and unable to work.

To qualify, you must show that you cannot work to earn what is considered a substantial income due to a physical or mental impairment. The disability must be proven and last a significant amount of time. From there, you will need to schedule a hearing before a federal judge within 60 days of the denial.

The application is only the beginning. Applying for benefits requires an interview with the Social Security Administration. Meetings can occur in person or by phone. A significant number of forms are required for review and signature, as well.

Options Following A Denial

Should that fail to secure benefits, appeals and reconsiderations are an option. Various options for appealing a decision exist. All of them carry strict deadlines and require total adherence. The slightest oversight or misstep carries dire consequences, particularly if you have a legitimate disability.

You are not alone in your frustration. For many applicants, Social Security Disability benefits feel like an uphill climb with seemingly no end in sight except for continuous rejections. The attorneys at Fuller Wallner, help to even the odds for SSD applicants facing off against an extremely powerful government entity. We can also help if you were injured on the job and are seeking both workers’ comp and SSD benefits.
