Filing for Social Security Disability
Our McAlester Social Security lawyers can help you with your case
There are a number of ways in which you can apply for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits, including over the phone and online. While this process can be complicated, require a significant time investment and often involve a lengthy appeals process for denied claims, you can make things easier on yourself by working with one of the experienced Tulsa Social Security attorneys at Stipe, Harper, Laizure, Uselton, Belote, Maxcey & Thetford. For decades, we have focused on the law when it comes to SSD claims, and can help you with attaining benefits for you and your family.
Guiding you through the SSD claim process
If you are dealing with an illness, injury or medical condition that prevents you from working, then you might consider filing for SSD benefits. In the past, this meant that you needed to call the Social Security Administration (SSA) office and request an interview either in person or over the phone with a member of the SSA staff. While this is still an option, you now may also apply for benefits online through the SSA’s website.
This process is easier for some individuals, although you’ll still likely have a number of questions. If this is the case for you, work with one of our experienced McAlester Social Security lawyers to find out your options and fill out your application in a way that gives you the best opportunity for approval. This is one of our primary areas of practice, and we’re here to serve you.
Submitting your application and preparing for an appeal
Even if you feel that you qualify for benefits, claims may be denied for a number of reasons — often due to administrative oversights. That’s why it’s important for you to always be prepared for an appeals process in order to secure your benefits, which may include a disability hearing. This is usually a lengthy process, and appeals rarely get resolved before a year or two after your initial application.
