Social security disability is a government program that provides payments to people who are disabled and unable to work, or to perform substantial gainful employment.
Applying for social security benefits can be a long and confusing process. In order to begin receiving social security you must show that you are disabled and that this disability prevents you from performing substantial gainful employment. There are several layers of appeals. Most people are initially denied benefits. Therefore, often it is necessary to appeal the decision to a higher level before you can receive benefits. Sometimes a hearing before a judge is required.
The good news is that if you approved for benefits, you will receive social security beginning from the time that you were first disabled. Therefore, once you are approved, depending on how long you have been disabled and how long the appeals process has taken, your initial check could be quite substantial. On the down side, the process can take a couple of years to complete. Contact an attorney at Hall & Hall Attorneys at Law, PC for a free evaluation of your case.
