Bethlehem Denied Social Security Disability Claim Attorney
Serving the ABE Region for 20 Years
If you are injured and are unable to work, whether the injury occurred at work or elsewhere, you are eligible for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits if you have paid into the Social Security system. Many people are able to file initial claims for SSD benefits themselves, and do not need an attorney. However, many SSD initial claims are denied, and having an experienced lawyer is essential if you intend to appeal the negative decision.
Wondering about your rights under SSD? We can help. Call 484-821-5026.
At Vellner Law, our attorney has 21 + years of experience handling injury cases. He has handled many SSD appeals for clients whose initial claims were denied. His experience allows him to advise people about the process, their rights and their options. He guides people through the process, personally keeping them informed about the progress of the case.
Contact Our Law Firm for Answers About SSD Appeals
The most important thing to know about SSD claims is that you have a very limited time to notify Social Security of your intent to appeal the negative decision. You have only 60 days to do this.
Some people ask if they should try to work part-time. Our lawyer's response to that question is, "Yes, if you can." SSD judges look favorably upon people who try to work at all.
When asked, "What happens next?" our attorney tells people about the hearing that will allow him to present your appeal. It often takes more than a year to get a hearing date. Attorney Vellner will prepare you for the hearing and be your strong advocate when the hearing takes place.
"I haven't worked long enough to qualify for benefits." The answer to this question is that benefits are available through the Supplemental Security Income program for people who have not worked or have not paid into the Social Security system.
Coordinating Workers' Compensation Benefits
Because he also handles many workers' compensation claims, he is able to coordinate the claims process and obtain maximum compensation for clients who were injured on the job and cannot work or are forced to work at lower-paying jobs or for fewer hours.
