Social Security Disability

At Deissner Law Office, we're dedicated to helping our clients. Whether you struggle with a mental or physical disability, we work closely with you to secure your social security disability benefits. These benefits can provide essential financial assistance to support you and your family when you need it most.

Because the entire process can seem slow and complicated, it's important to go about applying with the assistance of legal representation. In doing so, the chances of your application being denied due to errors or missing information drastically decreases. We pride ourselves in working with our clients from the very beginning. Throughout our time together, you'll receive supportive service for any questions or concerns you may have.

The Three-Step Application Process

Step 1: Determine what type of support you need.

Together, we'll discuss your eligibility for benefits as based upon several factors:

  • mental or physical disabilities,
  • finances, and
  • working history.

After evaluating these factors, we'll determine if you're eligible for Social Security Disability Income (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI).

Step 2: Shape your application for the best results.

Next, we'll help you complete your application in a manner that allows for the quickest and most favorable outcome. The bar is set high for SSDI — and many people are denied — but we'll do all we can to help you meet the criteria. We can give you helpful tips such as keeping logs, attending follow-up doctor visits and gathering all the appropriate documentation.

Step 3: Receive guidance for the waiting period.

The entire application process can be lengthy, but we'll always keep you updated as you wait. You don't have to worry about your case being lost or forgotten. In the meantime, we can direct you to the appropriate health care resources and other programs for financial relief.

Denied Doesn't Mean Ineligible

Most applications for SSDI are actually denied the first time through the system. The Social Security Administration may have denied your application for a number of reasons:

  • You do not have substantial proof that your disability will last for 12 or more months
  • They do not consider your impairment to be severe
  • They believe you can perform some type of work

Often, the application is then approved after the applicant reapplies with a stronger case. We can shape your argument with the appropriate documentation to help you achieve necessary financial support through SSI benefits or SSDI benefits.

Some suggestions to improve the odds of your application being accepted are to:

  • Pursue diagnostic treatment for your condition
  • Attend follow-up doctor visits
  • Share all your concerns and details of your condition with your doctor
  • Develop evidence from other resources such as friends, family, employers or your school
