Receive the benefits you deserve

Claims for Social Security Disability benefits

The process of obtaining Social Security Disability benefits can be very confusing.  Many people believe that they cannot collect Social Security benefits if they are receiving Workers' Compensation benefits.  Some others believe they will lose their Workers' Compensation benefits if they are receiving Social Security benefits.  Still others believe that if they are entitled to Workers' Compensation benefits, they will automatically be entitled to Social Security benefits.  None of these are true.

Eligibility for benefits

The standards for being eligible under Workers' Compensation and Social Security are different.  In fact, in some cases, Social Security may take a partial credit for the compensation you are receiving from Worker's Compensation.


If you have been disabled for more than 6 months, and it appears you will be disabled for some time to come, it is your right to make an application for this benefit under the law.

Our fees for representation before the Social Security Administration are "contingent".  This means that if you don't get paid, we don't get paid.  Our fee if you do get paid is 25% of the past due benefit up to a maximum of $6,000.  In the event it becomes necessary to pursue your case into Federal Court, different rules apply and if we are successful a case can be made that the Federal Government should pay for the services rendered before the Court.

What we will do:

    • Provide assistance in gathering the medical

      evidence needed to support your claim

    • Obtain the necessary forms and provide assistance

      in completing them

    • Appear with you at hearing before the Social

      Security Judge

    • Appeal any ruling, if necessary and appropriate, to

      the Appeals Council and, if appropriate, to the

      Federal District Court
