Helping You Navigate The Social Security Disability Process
Making Ends Meet After A Disability
When you’re hurt and can’t work due to a disability, it seems like the bills just add up. It can feel like a nightmare: For years, you worked hard and paid into the system, and now that you need Social Security Disability benefits to help make ends meet, you’re stuck in a maze of red tape and denials.
At McCormick & Vilushis LLC, we know the process to get approved for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits isn’t always clear, and we want to take the burden off your shoulders. We can help you pursue the benefits you are entitled to.
Do You Qualify For Aid?
If you are suffering from a disability and you can’t do the work you did before, can’t adjust to other work because of your medical conditions, and your disability has lasted or is expected to last for at least one year or result in death, you may be eligible for SSD benefits.
There are many conditions that may qualify you for SSD benefits, such as:
- Blindness or deafness
- Breathing problems
- Chronic heart disease
- Extreme psoriasis involving hands and feet
- HIV positive
- Immune system disorders
- Mental disorders
- Multiple sclerosis
- Neurological disorders
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Seizures despite the use of medication
- Other severe medical conditions
Our team can answer your questions to help you determine if you may be eligible for benefits.
Appealing A Denied Claim
Each year, more than half of all initial applications for SSD benefits are denied. A lawyer may be able to help you get your benefits if this has happened to you. We know how the complicated system works, and we can help you accurately fill out and submit the right forms and evidence to have the best chance of getting your benefits.
