One of our most recent blog posts discussed visual impairment, including blindness, and how it may qualify you for Social Security disability benefits. This is no small thing, as SSD benefits can provide a lifeline of financial support to help you make ends meet. We also discussed how those who suffer from visual impairment and receive Social Security can also earn more and still qualify for benefits than others seeking SSD. This means that those who have trouble seeing may still be able to keep their jobs, or seek work so as to maintain a piece of their normal day-to-day lives but still retain financial stability.
As great as it sounds, though, successfully applying for Social Security disability isn't always easy. In fact, a significant number of initial claims are denied. The reasons for denial are varied, but quite often it is tied to a filer's inability to satisfactorily show that he or she meets the federal requirements for disability. Therefore, if you are thinking about applying for SSD benefits, then you need to know what must be shown in order to qualify and persuade the Social Security Administration as to why you should be given benefits.
Every day, The Lawrence Law Firm helps its clients do exactly that. Our legal team knows the Social Security disability system and what must be done to obtain benefits. We proudly advocate for our clients from the initial claims process through appeal, if necessary. Working with our clients, we ensure that they are as fully prepared as possible before making their claim, giving them the best possible chance of success given their circumstances.
In the end, we recognize that Social Security disability is about reclaiming one's life and financial freedom.
