Obtaining the Benefits You Need and Deserve

Social Security Disability benefits are available to many individuals who find themselves unable to work due to the limitations caused by medical conditions. These limitations may stem from physical problems, mental health concerns, or both. For those currently seeking benefits, this is likely a very difficult and confusing time. The application process involves many steps and wading through a complex government bureaucracy.

Attorney Joseph C. Edwards can help relieve you of these burdens and find the right path forward for you.

Do I Qualify For Disability Benefits?

It can be difficult to navigate the Social Security system alone without industry knowledge and experience. For some, it may be unclear if they even qualify for benefits. The best place to start is the information below.

The Social Security Administration has indicated disability is defined as an inability to work or engage in Substantial Gainful Activity (SGA). An individual is considered disabled if:

• They are proven to be incapable of doing work they previously did.

• The Social Security Administration determines an individual cannot adjust to new work because of a medical condition AND the disability has lasted, or is expected to last, for at least a year, or result in death.

If you or a loved one are experiencing the above difficulties, seek advice and legal guidance from Joseph C. Edwards to help you attain a favorable approval of the benefits you deserve.
