Turned Down for SSDI Benefits?

If you are unable to work because of injury or illness, you may be entitled to Social Security Disability benefits. But many valid claims for Social Security disability are denied the first time around, even the second time. The process is so long, complex, and frustrating that many people just give up.

Mossman Law Office offers real hope of getting the SSDI or SSI benefits you need and deserve. In 25 years of special focus in this area of the law, I have helped literally thousands of people qualify for Social Security disability. My practice serves clients across the Boise area, southwest Idaho and eastern Oregon.

Haven't Applied Yet?

You are better off filing your own application the first time. Even with an attorney's help, the majority of initial claims are turned down. Meanwhile, the best thing you can do is to keep seeing your doctor to document your disability — and call Hugh Mossman if the SSA rejects your claim.

Social Security disability insurance (SSDI) is a federal program providing benefits to those who can no longer support themselves through regular employment because of a qualifying physical impairment or mental impairment. Supplemental Security Income (SSI) provides similar benefits to those who have never worked or do not have sufficient work credits to receive SSDI, and who are poor.

Eligibility for SSDI or SSI depends on many factors: your work history, your income, the degree and duration of your disability — and proving you cannot work.

Guiding You Through a Frustrating Process

During an already stressful time, the Social Security Administration (SSA) will make you "jump through hoops" to get qualified for benefits. I have a record of success at all stages:

  • Reconsideration — Resubmitting your claim with additional documentation.
  • Hearings — Preparing you to state your case before an administrative law judge (ALJ)
  • Appeals — Asking an administrative panel or federal court to overturn an adverse decision

How Can a Social Security Disability Lawyer Help?

No lawyer can change the bureaucratic process. But having an attorney who is familiar with the rules, the medical issues and the complex bureaucracy can (a) increase the likelihood that your rejected claim is approved as soon as possible and (b) maximize the benefit amount you are entitled to receive.

As a sustaining member of the National Organization of Social Security Claimants' Representatives (NOSSCR) who practices exclusively in Social Security and work injury law, I can ensure that your paperwork will be in order, advise on steps you can take to help your claim, and protect your interests in all proceedings.

I keep clients informed about the progress of the case, and Mossman Law Office operates on a contingency basis — we charge no fee unless we succeed in securing benefits for you.
