Do you or a family member need Social Security benefits, but find that the application process is long and frustrating? Don’t worry. You’re not alone.
Many Americans, from retired workers to individuals who have experienced a physical or mental disability, depend on Social Security benefits for a large part of their monthly income. Unfortunately, the government system is flawed and the process to obtain benefits can seem impossible. In fact, many applicants are denied the first time they apply for Social Security benefits, even if they are qualified.
If this happened to you, don’t lose hope. It’s simply time to call a social security lawyer, like Fitzgerald & Bomier. With over 35 years of legal experience, our Neenah attorneys specifically focus on obtaining Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), Supplemental Security Income (SSI), and Workers’ Compensation for our clients, so we are extremely knowledgeable and prepared to successfully handle your claim and provide the results you need.
SSI and SSDI claims are controlled by the Social Security Administration, and, like any government program, have unique and tricky rules and regulations. With the help of an experienced social security lawyer, you can navigate the specific laws affecting your claim much easier.
Fitzgerald & Bomier has helped hundreds of clients in Neenah and the Fox Cities of Wisconsin maximize their Social Security benefits and make the most out of the complicated system. We understand the financial pressure retiring or living with a disability can place on your family. Thankfully, the Social Security Administration provides benefits to help with lost income or medical expenses. However, obtaining those benefits can be a challenging, slow process due to the lengthy and complicated application. This can be especially discouraging when you need Social Security benefits to help pay your monthly bills.
With Fitzgerald & Bomier’s legal experience on your side, you can rest easy knowing we will aggressively help you win the SSDI and SSI benefits you deserve. Often considered an ‘entitlement’ for older individuals, Social Security benefits are not just given. It is actually earned through years of work experience, with some limited exceptions. To qualify for retirement benefits, you need to have 40 lifetime work credits. While single credits aren’t that difficult to collect — one credit is earned for every $1,320 in wages — keep in mind, your credits max out for the year once you reach four. So, in 2018, it would take a worker ten years to earn 40 work credits to qualify for Social Security.
A physical or mental disability that prevents you from working, however, can allow you to qualify without the 40 credits. Your age, medical condition, and work experience will all be considered in determining if you meet the government’s strict criteria to obtain SSDI benefits. The attorneys at Fitzgerald & Bomier have extensive experience in obtaining Social Security benefits for clients, and know exactly which forms, medical records, and doctor statements are required to establish your disability.
Fitzgerald & Bomier are not only knowledgeable, but strive to provide their clients a superior experience while representing their legal issue. When applying for SSDI or SSI, you will naturally have questions. Our professional social security lawyers promise consistent communication and prompt updates on your claim.
