Social Security Disability Income and Supplemental Security Income
Brentwood, Franklin and Middle Tennessee Social Security Attorneys
Are you thinking of applying for Social Security Disability Income (SSDI) benefits? Have you already applied and been denied benefits? The Social Security Administration's application and appeals processes for Social Security Disability Income and Supplemental Security Income can be time-consuming and overwhelming. The attorneys of Papa & Roberts can help.
To obtain Social Security Disability Insurance benefits, you must file a package of documents with the Social Security Administration (SSA). This package includes forms provided by the SSA and any supporting medical records and other documentation. While this may seem straightforward, it is often not that easy for applicants. In fact, less than 15 percent of initial applications are approved by the SSA. Applicants who are persistent and use the services of a professional SSDI benefits and disability appeals lawyer have a much better chance of success on their first application, and on appeal.
From your initial application through any appeals and every step in between, our attorneys will guide you through the process, advising you on your rights and assisting you with gathering important information to support your case and completing documents. Our skilled attorneys' extensive negotiation experience and public sector background give us a unique perspective to assist you from the start of your initial application until your benefits are approved.
