Social Security Disability

Disabled? Call Benjamin 0. Bengtson:
Your Atlanta Social Security Disability Lawyer!

We have a fairly small disability practice. We handle Social Security cases for current and former clients. Sometimes, we are referred disability clients by doctors and other lawyers and we help them.

What is Social Security Disability?

Social Security disability (SSD) is a part of the Federal Social Security Act. It provides disability payments and other benefits for those who are disabled and can't work. Benefits are often referred to as Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits and can include cash payments and medical coverage.

Need a Social Security Disability Lawyer? Want Help Applying? Claim Denied?

Many people who apply for Social Security disability benefits find that their applications were denied -even those who qualify. If this has happened to you, we know you must be frustrated. You can't work and need to be able to pay your bills. On top of that, the appeal process is very complicated. Getting Social Security Disability is difficult.

1. It is not enough for a claimant to show they cannot perform their past work. To qualify, a claimant must show they cannot do any kind of work in the economy.

2. It is not enough for the claimant to argue there are no job openings, or that they could not get hired. Social Security does not care about those things – they only care about whether a claimant can physically and mentally perform work that theoretically exists.

3. It is not enough to get a doctor to say "disabled". Though that might be helpful, Social Security reserves the decision about disability for themselves. Instead, the doctor will need to state what kind of work limitations the claimant has.
