Michigan SSD Lawyer / Oakland County Social Security Disability Claims Lawyer

Oakland County Social Security Disability Claims Lawyer

Medical conditions cause thousands of people in Michigan to stop working because they cannot handle their pain and limitations. Fortunately, the Social Security Disability (SSD) program provides benefits to help these workers. At Nationwide Disability Law, we have helped hundreds of men and women access benefits, and we offer our services to those in Troy, Michigan and other cities in Oakland County. The odds of being approved are unfortunately low, so finding the right law firm to help you is critical. Call us today to speak with our Oakland County Social Security Disability claims lawyer about your case.

Steps to Receiving Benefits

The road to receiving disability benefits is often full of twists and turns. Our firm can smooth out the process and increase the odds in your favor. We can:

  1. Collect medical evidence. The SSD benefits application requires information about your medical condition and disability. We can track down test results, medical records, and doctor’s statements to use in your case.
  2. Gather work history information. You will not receive benefits until the government believes you cannot return to an old job or transition to a different one. For this reason, the application requests information about your work history.
  3. Complete and submit an application. Our firm will make sure your application is completed correctly. Many people are denied benefits because their application is missing required information, or they entered the information incorrectly. We can help you avoid these simple errors.
  4. Review any denial. The application process takes about 3-6 months. If you are approved for benefits, you will receive notification by mail. Our firm can also review any denial and analyze what additional evidence is required. We often first hear from people after their initial application was denied.
  5. Compile evidence for an appeal. If you are denied benefits, you have not reached the end of the road. You can request reconsideration and, if denied again, appeal to an administrative law judge (ALJ). We can strengthen your claim by finding evidence to use in support.
  6. Attend a hearing. We can present evidence to an ALJ and explain why you should receive benefits. Many workers win benefits at this stage.
  7. Continue with your case. If you lose on appeal, we might submit another appeal to the Appeals Council or possibly file a lawsuit in federal court.
