You did not expect this day to come until you were ready to retire. Until then, you expected to keep working. Unfortunately, you suffer from a permanent and completely disabling injury or illness that has prematurely ended your working years. Now, you are left trying to figure out how to pay your bills without an income.
Social Security Disability May Be an Option for You
While you were working, you paid into the Social Security system and now you may be eligible for Social Security disability benefits. However, Social Security disability benefits are not automatically awarded when you identify as disabled. Instead, you must submit a complicated application and have that application approved.
Unfortunately, the majority of initial Social Security disability applications are denied—often because of errors on the application. These denials can result in months without benefits and additional paperwork and stress as you go through the appeals process. This can be avoided, however, with the help of experienced Social Security disability lawyers.

- You Have Already Applied for Social Security Disability Benefits. If you have already applied for benefits and you have additional information to provide then you should not wait for a denial of benefits. Instead, you should contact an experienced lawyer for help.
