Imagine working your whole life and contributing your fair share to the social security retirement system, only to find out that you are unable to collect your due benefits because of a mistake made by the government. Unfortunately, this very scenario is a reality for many of our nation’s retired workers. The nation’s social security plan is a safeguard that protects both able and disabled workers 65 years of age or older. Using a complicated mathematical formula, the government calculates your monthly retirement benefits based on your total earnings over the course of your working career. Social security benefits are supposed to cover approximately 40 percent of your monthly living expenses, but if the government makes a miscalculation, you could be cheated out of important retirement funds.
Social security also provides disability insurance benefits. In order to be eligible for these benefits, a disabled worker must prove that he or she paid social security taxes for a stipulated amount of time (five out of the last 10 years in most cases), and that he or she became disabled while disability insurance was in effect. If your disability claim is not filed promptly and properly, it may be denied regardless of the severity of the disability.
Whether you are seeking retirement benefits or disability insurance, our team of attorneys will help you properly document evidence in support of your claim, file your claim in a timely manner, and make sure you are paid the money you rightly deserve.
