Turned Down For Disability Benefits? Don’t Give Up Hope.
If you are unable to work because of injury or illness, you may be entitled to Social Security Disability benefits. However, many valid claims for Social Security Disability are denied on the first try and even the second try. The process is so long, complex and frustrating that many people just give up.
At Mossman Law Office, we offer real hope of getting the SSDI or SSI benefits you need and deserve. With more than 25 years of special focus in this area of law, our firm has helped literally thousands of people qualify for Social Security Disability benefits. Our practice serves clients throughout the Boise area, southwest Idaho and eastern Oregon.
COVID-19 And Disability Hearings
Here is the link to important information about how the Social Security Administration is handling applications, appeals and hearings during the pandemic. Please be advised that for now all currently scheduled hearings will take place by phone or video. Claimants do have the option to postpone the hearing if they want the opportunity to be see in person. Call our office with questions or concerns!
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 Mossman Law Office if the Social Security Administration (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 will make you “jump through hoops” to get qualified for benefits. Mossman Law Office has a record of success at all stages of the process.
- 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, medical issues and 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 full-time in Social Security and work injury law, attorney Taylor Mossman 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.
We keep clients informed about the progress of the case, and we operate on a contingency-fee basis — which means we charge no fee unless we succeed in securing benefits for you.
