Why Most People Need Help With New England Social Security Disability

When you apply for Social Security Administration (SSA) disability benefits in New England, two things can happen. You can be accepted and begin receiving benefits, or you can be denied and be forced to appeal the decision.

If you are accepted, you are among the lucky few. In 2010, almost three million Americans applied for disability benefits. A little over one million, or 35.85%, were accepted. That puts your chances at a little better than one in three.

These odds are not in your favor, and that is why so many give up. In our eyes, giving up is not an option! The SSA counts on a certain number of applicants to drop their applications if they are denied, when, indeed, pursuing your claim is the smartest thing to do.

We believe that if your disability is keeping you from working, you deserve the benefits SSA disability can afford you. And we have spent almost two decades helping people like you get and keep your benefits.

Consider the case of James W., one of our clients. He wrote to us and said, "I went to call the bank to check my balance today because I was three dollars short on paying my rent. They told me there was a $36,000 check there from Social Security. I couldn't believe it. I wasn't even going to have a Christmas this year, so I want to thank everyone so much for all of their help . . . I keep pinching myself to make sure this is really true."

Testimonials like these are what keep us in the battle for your rights. If you have any questions about your disability claim and live in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont, or Rhode Island, call us today toll free at 888-904-6847. Or, fill out the simple form on this page and we will call you.
