Many people who work hard throughout their lives suffer disabling injuries or develop physical or mental disorders that prevent them from working all the way to retirement age, as they had expected.
For many, their jobs provided a sense of accomplishment and a welcomed social circle of co-workers with whom they shared successes. Now, they have been uprooted, and they are coping with physical pain and perhaps mental anguish, which is compounded by the stress caused by mounting bills.
If you find yourself in this sort of situation, you may be eligible to collect Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). In fact, you may have already applied, only to be told that you do not qualify for benefits.
Like most disability attorneys, we only get paid if your appeal is approved and you collect back pay. You do not owe attorney fees if we do not recover a lump sum payment for you.
The law firm of Rogers, Duncan & North in Manchester, Tennessee, can help. We have the experience and knowledge of the SSDI system to strengthen your case and improve your chances of having your claim approved.
Coffee County Application Appeal Lawyers
To qualify for disability benefits, your physical or mental condition (or combination) must satisfy the definition of disability used by the Social Security Administration. That definition states that "an individual must have a severe impairment that has either lasted, or can be expected to last, for a minimum of one year" that prevents the person from engaging in what is referred to as substantial gainful activity (or SGA).
Disability benefits are only available to disabled people who have earned sufficient "work credits" with Social Security. How many credits you need depends on your age and when you became disabled.
