Do You Qualify For SSD Benefits?
Are you disabled? Is a physical or mental health impairment making it impossible for you to work? Your disability may cause untold pain and hardship, but you must prove to the Social Security Administration (SSA) that you are disabled before you become eligible for benefits.
I am Marshall W. Conick, an Social Security Disability attorney in New Lenox, serving clients throughout Will County and across Chicagoland.
With more than 20 years of experience, I can help you understand the SSA’s eligibility requirements and how they apply to you. I am here to prove your case to the SSA and to help you obtain the disability benefits you need and deserve.
Social Security Disability Requirements
In order to qualify for Social Security Disability benefits:
- You must have a qualifying physical or mental health impairment
- Your disability must prevent you from doing the work you once did and prevents you from adjusting to other work
- Your disability must have lasted at least 12 months, is expected to last at least 12 months or is expected to result in death
- You must have worked long enough, and recently enough, to have paid into the system
It’s not enough to be disabled. You must have documented medical evidence that your disability is real and severe enough to prevent you from working.
As your attorney, I can gather the necessary evidence and present the most compelling possible case before the SSA. I can represent you in your initial Social Security Disability claim and in the appeals process.
