If you are unable to continue working due to a physical or mental condition, you may be entitled to receive Social Security disability benefits and/or private disability insurance benefits. Social Security disability benefits is a federal program administered by the Social Security system. It can be a long and complicated application process taking several years before your case is heard by an administrative judge. Our attorneys have extensive experience in representing people seeking Social Security disability benefits.
You also may be entitled to disability benefits through a private insurance policy. The criteria for qualification for short and/or long-term disability is governed by the contract that you purchased, either independently or through your place of employment. There is a definite connection between private disability insurance and Social Security disability. Our experienced attorneys can help you navigate through this very complex area of law.
