The Law Says You Deserve SSDI Benefits — We Can Help You Put Those Laws To Good Use

Dealing with any form of disability is a challenge, so it's only natural to seek benefits to improve your chances of a successful recovery. Unfortunately, the system doesn't always work on your behalf like it should.

At Rone & Kowalski, LLC, we don't think anyone should get left behind as our community matures and expands. Our Social Security attorneys have been coming to the aid of the citizens of South Jersey for more than 25 years — and helping our injured clients feel whole again is why we wake up looking forward to each new day.

Making Sense Of Benefits Programs

Social Security Disability Insurance, or SSDI, is a vital federal insurance lifeline that boosts the incomes of those whose disabilities prevent them from maintaining employment. This program isn't income-dependent like some other Social Security benefits (like Supplemental Security Income or SSI), but it does pay out on a temporary or permanent timetable to match your disability. Like other initiatives, SSDI requires that you meet a common definition of disability:

  • Adults must have medically determinable impairments that stop them from maintaining gainful employment, have lasted or will last 12 months or more, or can result in death
  • Children under 18 must suffer from medically determinable impairments that are physical or mental and cause them to either be severely functionally limited, in danger of death, or disabled for 12 months or more

These standards are designed to ensure that benefits go to those who actually require them. The problem lies in the sad fact that the system doesn't always make accurate determinations of who's disabled or in need. Our team of experienced lawyers is dedicated to helping you secure the benefits you deserve after an initial denial. We work to help you prepare an appeal and improve your odds by providing diligent representation from the instant you file to your hearing before an administrative law judge.

Overcoming SSDI Setbacks

Being denied Social Security Disability Insurance doesn't mean that all hope is lost. By going to the doctor, following your caregiver's instructions and filing an appeal, you can increase your chances of making a successful comeback. Since you need to prove your disability with verifiable medical opinions and test results, however, it definitely helps to have guidance from an experienced and dedicated SSDI attorney.

At Rone & Kowalski, LLC, we've spent years learning the law and, no matter how challenging it may seem, we're committed to helping you fight for the SSDI benefits you deserve. Call our office in Milmay, New Jersey, at 609-416-1453 or contact us online today to arrange a free initial consultation.
