Social Security Disability Attorneys in Pottsville

Fighting for Disabled Pennsylvanians

According to the Disability Benefits Center, roughly 374,000 Pennsylvanians receive Social Security disability (SSD) benefits. In order to qualify for benefits in Pennsylvania, you must meet strict disability and work history requirements as set forth by the Social Security Administration.

If you live with a disability that prevents you from working, you may qualify for benefits. Because the process of seeking benefits can be complicated, we recommend retaining the services of our Pottsville Social Security disability attorneys. At Metzger Wickersham, we strive to ensure that all qualifying Pennsylvanians receive the support they need.

Learn more about SSD benefits by calling us at (888) 286-2850 or contacting us online.

Eligibility Requirements

In order to receive SSD benefits, you must have a legitimate, qualifying disability. The SSA has its own definition of what a disability is – and short-term or partial disabilities do not qualify for benefits.

You are considered disabled under Social Security rules if:

  • You are no longer able to perform the work you did before
  • You are unable to perform a different type of work because of your condition
  • Your disability will last for at least one year or result in death

If your condition is considered a disability according to the SSA, you still must meet a few other requirements, such as having the minimum number of work credits needed to have paid into the SSD system

Seek Guidance from Metzger Wickersham

It can be overwhelming to try to obtain SSD benefits on your own. At Metzger Wickersham, we offer the comprehensive assistance you are seeking. Our goal is to help you receive approval for benefits on the first request. However, many applicants are denied at first. Thankfully, you have the right to appeal the decision. Our Pottsville Social Security disability attorneys can help in either situation.

Our firm represents clients at the initial application stage, as well as clients who are going through the appeals process. We will take the time to gather all relevant evidence and even to uncover new evidence that may benefit your case. With Metzger Wickersham on your side, you can rest assured that you are positioned for success.
