Do You Need a Regular Disability Benefits Attorney?
Individuals who develop a disease or become physically or mentally disabled and cannot perform gainful work for an extended period of time may qualify for regular Social Security disability benefits. Regular disability benefits are also referred to as disability insurance benefits or DIB. You qualify for regular disability benefits based on your employment history.

Why You Need A Qualified Florida DIB Attorney
Regular disability is one of the most complicated Social Security programs. The Social Security Administration has specific guidelines for qualifying for disability cash assistance. An experienced DIB attorney can answer your specific questions and offer guidance about your eligibility. Social Security’s definition of disability is strict and generally relates to your ability to work and earn income. The mere fact that you have a letter from your doctor stating that you are disabled does not qualify you for regular disability benefits. To obtain regular disability benefits, you must have a medically-determinable mental or physical impairment that will prevent you from working for a year or that will eventually lead to your death.
An individual may be denied regular disability benefits if they have not paid into the Social Security system long enough, are not a U.S. citizen or are not considered disabled under Social Security’s strict definition. If your DIB claim was denied, you may appeal. But if you miss the time limit for filing an appeal, your appeal may be barred. It’s important to talk with a skilled attorney who has experience navigating the DIB appeals process and to begin the appeal of your denial promptly.

How Can I Afford to Hire a Regular Disability Benefits Lawyer?
During an initial consultation, which is free, we will review the specifics of your accident and discuss your legal options. If we determine that we can handle your case, we will represent you on a contingent fee basis. You will not be charged for legal fees or costs unless we obtain compensation for you through a settlement or court award. At that time, the fee for our legal representation will come from a percentage of the final award.
