How an Experienced Social Security Disability Lawyer Can Help You

Dealing with the government throughout the course of your SSD claim can be a long, frustrating process. Let us handle the work for you. Our experienced Social Security Disability attorneys in Pennsylvania understand the system and know the type of documentation required in order to get your claim approved. We can help you with the confusing paperwork and guide you through all stages of the application and appeals process.

If you already applied and your claim has been denied, you can appeal the decision. You must file your appeal within 60 days of the day you receive your denial notice. Once you appeal, a hearing with an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) will be scheduled. If you hire an attorney at Metzger Wickersham to assist with your case, we can represent you at this hearing.

The hearing is important because it is the only time in the administrative appeal process where we can argue your case in front of a judge with the authority to approve your request for benefits. Statistically, people represented by an attorney have been successful in winning their claims more often than people without attorney representation. Every case is different, but rest assured that our experienced Social Security Disability attorneys are dedicated to helping disabled individuals win the benefits they need and deserve.

Who is Eligible for Social Security Disability?

Those applying for Social Security Disability benefits must meet certain requirements.

To be eligible for benefits under the Social Security Disability program, you must:

  • Meet the Social Security Administration's definition of disability
  • Have physical or mental health impairments (or a combination of both) severe enough to keep you from working any regular, paying job for at least 12 months - OR - have impairments that are expected to result in death
  • Have a work history long enough to have paid into the Social Security Disability system

If your work history is not long enough to make you eligible to receive Social Security Disability benefits, you may qualify for Supplemental Security Income (SSI). SSI provides monthly payments to people who are disabled, do not have adequate work history, and have little or no income and resources.
