Revolutionary System, Complicated Process

Apr 27, 2016 | Social Security


President Roosevelt signed the Social Security Act into law on August 14, 1935. That was a pretty good day for Americans, as it provided a layer of financial protection for millions alive at the time and generations to follow. In 1955, Social Security was expanded to include income replacement for the disabled, providing much needed relief to those unable to work due to their disabilities.

The program is revolutionary and life changing, which is why we all pay at least 6% of our paychecks into the program, because we want the program to still be around if and when we need it. Unfortunately, getting Social Security Disability benefits can be harder than you might think. In fact, more than two-thirds of initial applications are denied, leaving many wondering how they’re going to make ends meet. It’s understandable why so many are denied. The application process is complicated and can be confusing for someone filing for the first time. Thankfully, there’s an appeal process, and those who appeal with the help of a lawyer are more likely to secure benefits.

If you’ve been denied Social Security Disability benefits, give us a call today for a free consultation. Our Social Security Disability lawyers have years of experience getting benefits for the people of Indiana, and we’re ready to help you. Securing benefits for your disability is too important to go it alone, so call us today.
