Chicago SSD Attorneys Working To Avoid Denial Of Benefits Throughout Illinois

Due to the backlog in processing disability claims and appeals, the process of obtaining Social Security Disability benefits can take years if the claim for benefits is denied. Unfortunately, the majority of claims for disability benefits are denied at the initial application for benefits — and many times, due to technical errors or insufficient documentation that could be avoided.

If you are suffering from a disability or disease that has affected your ability to work and earn a living, this backlog causes delays that you simply cannot afford. Our attorneys at Jeffrey A. Rabin & Associates, Ltd., understand your frustrations as you confront the challenging Social Security Disability claims and appeals processes. We work to minimize the delays our clients are exposed to by ensuring that your claim for benefits is comprehensive, accurate, and fully supported by sufficient objective medical documentation.

Why Hire An Attorney For Your SSD Case?

Social Security Disability (SSD) applicants are not required to consult an attorney or even hire an attorney for representation in SSD appeals. However, according to statistics, individuals who work with an attorney have a higher success rate in obtaining disability benefits than individuals who proceed without an attorney. Some advantages of hiring an attorney to handle your initial Social Security Disability application or appeal include:

  • Ensure your initial application and subsequent questionnaires contain the comprehensive documentation the Social Security Administration (SSA) requires
  • Ensure your initial application and your answers to questionnaires from the DDS, to avoid technical errors or mistakes that could cause your claim to get denied
  • Ensure prompt filing of your appeal that avoids unnecessary delays
  • Ensure your appeal is thorough and accurate
  • Ensure you are prepared for the disability hearing
