Social Security Disability Claims

Social Security Disability Claims

If you are under the age of 65 and have a physical or mental condition that prevents you from working for over one year, or if you have paid into the Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits program through payroll deductions, you may be entitled to receive Social Security Disability benefits. At Rosenfeld & Rafik, P.C., we represent individuals who have been denied Social Security Disability benefits. Far too many disabled people are routinely denied claims despite their disabling medical conditions.

If you or a family member has been denied Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), please contact Rosenfeld & Rafik to arrange a consultation with one of our lawyers. Our firm is deeply involved in and committed to helping individuals access the healthcare and disability benefits that they have been denied.

A Few Words Concerning Disability and Denial of SSD Benefits

According to Social Security Online: The Official Website of the U.S. Social Security Administration, "We ask you for information about your medical condition, work, and education history to help us decide if you are disabled under our rules." Disabled individuals are routinely denied SSD benefits based upon determinations made by the Social Security Administration (SSA). If you have been denied benefits, you have the right to appeal the decision.

The attorneys at Rosenfeld & Rafik are vigorous advocates for disabled individuals. We understand that people are frequently denied SSD benefits because of their medical condition. We have solid working relationships with medical professionals. These relationships allow us to fully understand the affect a disability has on a person's life, health, and ability to work. We strive to show that a person's disability is valid and has affected his or her ability to work.

In addition to helping people obtain SSD benefits through the appeals process, we also help people with issues such as long-term disability, life insurance, and other ERISA governed plans. Please contact Rosenfeld & Rafik today to learn how we can help you.
