Helping you get the benefits you need to stay afloat
Social Security Disability gives people who cannot work because of severe medical conditions much-needed relief.

How we help clients get SSD benefits
Getting the Social Security Disability benefits you need is a process that applicants must take seriously, and filling out the application with the correct information is vital to winning benefits. In our first meeting, we will help you determine whether you qualify for Social Security Disability and help you start the process. Our lawyers make sure that our clients’ applications are:
- Accurate: Our lawyers can get your application right the first time so that you can avoid setbacks and delays. Medical evidence from your doctor is essential to have a strong application. This evidence provides concrete proof of your health and reason for needing Social Security Disability benefits. We will help you find low-cost or free treatment options that allow you to get accurate medical evidence.
- Thorough: We will use the evidence gained from appointments with doctors and a thorough investigation to create a personalized application. Our attorneys will make sure that your application for Social Security Disability has the relevant information from your life.
- Timely: Obtaining Social Security Disability can be a lengthy process, so it is essential to start as soon as possible. You should apply right away if you stop working because not having a recent enough work history can disqualify you from certain benefits. Additionally, you may also be able to receive benefits that cover the time after your first application until you are granted benefits.
Fighting for you after a denied application
Many people feel defeated after being denied Social Security benefits. If your application is denied, it is important to remember that Social Security Disability is not a free handout. You earned these benefits by working and paying into the Social Security system. Because you paid into this system, you should appeal your denied application.
At Hunter & Everage, our Social Security Disability appeals lawyers will work to get you the benefits you deserve. We will help you make the lengthy and confusing process as easy as possible. Our skilled attorneys will fight for you and ensure that you get the best possible outcome for your appeal.
