Social Security Disability: Getting it Right the First Time

Jan 4, 2017 | Social Security

Social Security Disability (SSD) is a safeguard for disabled Americans who can no longer work or make a living on their own. Without SSD benefits, these individuals would struggle to make ends meet. Although Social Security Disability has never made anyone rich, it could be the difference between living well and falling through the cracks.

That’s why it’s so important that you secure SSD benefits as quickly as possible, and an experienced Indiana Social Security Disability attorney can help you do just that. The SSD application process is notoriously difficult to navigate on your own, which is why more than two-thirds of all initial applications are denied. That’s thousands of Americans denied every single year. Thankfully, with an attorney’s help, many of those who were initially denied will receive benefits through the appeal process, but it’s important that you secure legal help as soon as possible.

If you’ve been denied Social Security Disability benefits, give yourself the best chance of winning your appeal by calling an experienced attorney today. At Stewart & Stewart, we’ve been helping the disabled people of Indiana get the benefits they deserve for years, and we’re ready to help you as well. Your SSD benefits are too important to your family to try and go it alone. Contact us today.
