Social Security Disability
Social Security Disability Attorneys in Fort Wayne
Obtaining Social Security Disability including Social Security Disability Insurance Benefits (DIB), Supplemental Security Income (SSI), or Child Benefits may be a long, complicated, and scary process. The Social Security Administration (SSA) turns down the majority of initial claims. About one third of those who file a claim are found disabled at the initial level, the other two thirds are denied social security disability benefits. This includes many deserving people who are truly disabled. Please do not give up! Let the experienced and caring social security disability attorneys and staff at Perry Law Office in Fort Wayne, IN help you from your initial denial through your hearing. We are here to help you obtain the benefits that you deserve.
How to Get Social Security Disability Benefits
Obtaining Social Security (SS) is a multiple step process. The majority of claims for Social Security Disability Benefits proceed as follows:
1. you will file your initial claim for disability, get denied
2. you file your reconsideration, get denied
3. you file for request for hearing, and have a hearing in front of an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ). This hearing is your best chance to be found disabled. That is why Perry Law Office takes the time to meet with you IN PERSON at your initial consultation and again prior to the hearing if one is necessary so we can better know you and your disabilities.
