We Can Help You Secure the Benefits You Are Entitled To!

At Chatham Gilder Howell Pittman PLLC, we understand you may feel trapped if you have a mental or physical condition threatening your ability to hold a job. You may worry about how you will pay your bills or support your family if you are forced out of work. You should know, a safety net may be available through the Social Security Administration.

Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits are designed to provide financial support to individuals with a medical condition that has prevented them from continuing to work, including brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, amputations, and other serious injuries or illnesses.

Helping You Navigate Past Any Hurdles to Secure SSDI Benefits

The demand for Social Security Disability benefits is high, adding to the complexity of securing benefits for individuals and families in need. In fact, most requests for Social Security Disability benefits are initially denied. Do not feel discouraged if your initial claim is denied. An experienced attorney at our firm can help you navigate past any bureaucratic hurdles.

At the law firm of Chatham Gilder Howell Pittman PLLC, we understand you need real answers. We want to take the mystery out of securing SSD/SSDI benefits.

The three steps generally involved in applying for SSD/SSDI benefits include:

  • Initial application: You can apply at your local district Social Security Administration office. You should not be discouraged if your initial application is denied. Most disability applications are initially declined.
  • Reconsideration: The next step in the process is called the request for reconsideration. While you may be granted benefits during reconsideration, most requests are denied.
  • Request for a hearing: This is the stage where you should contact our disability law firm. You can appeal your denied claim at a hearing before an administrative law judge. It is critical to have an experienced lawyer represent you at this hearing.

Handling Supplemental Security Income Claims

Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is designed to help disabled adults and children with limited financial resources. Applying for Supplemental Security Income follows the same three steps as applications for Social Security Disability benefits. If you have been turned down for SSI during your initial application and reconsideration, our lawyers can represent you during your appeal.

You may feel like you have walked into a minefield trying to secure SSDI or SSI benefits. Unfortunately, securing disability benefits can be a long, difficult process. We are committed to providing you with straight answers, so you have a clear picture of the steps ahead.
