Social Security Disability Attorneys
Social Security Disability is a federal program designed to provide financial assistance to people with disabilities who are unable to work. Your disability does not need to come from a workplace injury in order to qualify for benefits. At the Law Offices of Kelly, Duarte, Urstoeger & Ruble LLP, we are Social Security Disability lawyers in Modesto who can help you through the disability application and appeals process necessary to secure the benefits you need to live.
What Is A Disability?
In order to qualify for Social Security Disability benefits, you must prove that you have a permanent disability – either physical or mental – that prevents you from working. The disability must also either:
- Last for at least 1 year
- Be expected to be terminal
While each claim is handled on a case-by-case basis, there are some conditions that may qualify you for Social Security. Some of these include:
- Immune disorders
- Heart failure
- Coronary artery disease
- Blood disorders
- Respiratory illness
- Neurological disorders
- Vision loss
- Hearing loss
You are not required to have an attorney to file or appeal a Social Security Disability claim. However, doing so can go a long way toward helping you to navigate the system successfully, ensuring the best possible outcome for your claim. If you or a loved one has a disability and wants to file for Social Security benefits, our California firm can help make sure you hit the deadlines and provide the crucial supporting evidence that can get your case approved.
