We Can Help With The Disability Application Process

You can file an application for Social Security Disability benefits on your own. However, it's a good idea to talk to an experienced attorney before doing so. The application will require you to answer a number of specific questions that revolve around your particular condition and the reasons you believe you can't work.

Providing inaccurate information on the application can be a serious problem. Even accurate information, if it inadvertently presents your situation in a false light, can be a problem. At the Rome law firm of Davis, Davis & Patterson, our lawyers can advise and assist you throughout the disability application process.

Filing For Disability In Georgia

If you are seeking Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits, you can fill out an online form from the Social Security Administration. If you are seeking Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits, you must either call the administration or visit one of its local offices.

Once you complete an application — either online, by phone or in person — the application is reviewed by a disability claims examiner. The examiner may gather information from your medical providers, from your friends or family, or from other sources before deciding whether or not to approve your claim.

If your disability claim is denied, do not give up. Our law firm can help you file an appeal.
