Lincoln Social Security Disability Lawyer

If you are dealing with a serious illness or injury, the last thing you should have to worry about is contending with the Social Security Administration to receive payment of your benefits. That’s why working with an attorney through the process can be so beneficial: It allows you to focus on adapting to your illness or disability instead of wondering and worrying whether you will receive the benefits you need.

Lincoln Social Security disability attorney Brett McArthur can assist you with your initial claim, and with expertise gained from 20 years of experience he will work to make sure your claims process is handled in an expeditious and conscientious manner. He can also assist you even if you have received a denial, and will fight to ensure you receive the benefits you deserve.

Filing Your Initial Application

The Social Security Administration will only award you benefits if it is clear you are unable to continue in your current job position due to your illness or injury, so before you file your first application you will need to gather plenty of medical evidence to support your claim. At the Law Office of Brett McArthur, we can provide you with a free consultation and will review your information to help you determine if you are eligible for SSDI or SSI. We will then assist you during each step of the application process to help you get a complete and fair hearing of your case.

Dealing with a Denial

It can be extremely frustrating to receive a denial of benefits, but it is important to not give up too soon! If you recently have been denied benefits, Lincoln Social Security disability lawyer Brett McArthur can help you refile your claim within the deadline and with the necessary required paperwork. Frequently, an appeal is due within 30 days of your receipt of the denial letter, so don’t delay in contacting us as soon as possible.

Lincoln SSI Disability Lawyer

If you have become disabled and are unable to work, you may be eligible for benefits under two federal programs.

Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI)

If you have enough years of work experience and also meet other work requirements, you could be eligible for federal SSDI benefits if you have a medical condition that will prevent you from working for more than one year, or that will result in death. After receiving benefits for two years, you then typically become eligible for Medicare health insurance benefits. And in addition to what you receive, there may also be benefits for your spouse and minor children.

Supplemental Security Income (SSI)

If you have little or no income and resources, and you have an illness or injury that will prevent you from working for more than one year, you may be eligible for federal SSI benefits. You may also be eligible for Medicaid health benefits.
