Social Security Disability Legal Services
Guiding clients through the SSD process and beyond
Mattleman, Weinroth & Miller, P.C. is an experienced Social Security Disability (SSD) law firm serving clients across New Jersey, Delaware, and Pennsylvania who are disabled and cannot work. Disability is an alarming concept. Mattleman, Weinroth & Miller, P.C. recognizes the uncertainty and stress clients feel when faced with the fact that they cannot support themselves, confronted by a diminished quality of life. Our attorneys are passionate about helping people who have been denied SSD benefits because of physical and mental disabilities, including, but not limited to spine disorders, back problems, mental illness, heart disease, liver disease, lung disease, uncontrolled diabetes, multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, arthritis, and migraines.
What is SSD?
While we work, a portion of our paychecks goes to Social Security. We are contributing to our future by supporting people who presently need these benefits. As a “pay-it-forward” system, Social Security is a part of almost every family in America. We pay to support people who are retired, people who are disabled, survivors of deceased workers, and dependents of beneficiaries. Though we are supporting people now, these benefits should be available for us when we need it.
If you are suddenly mentally or physically disabled and it is expected to last longer than a year, you may need to apply for Social Security benefits sooner than retirement. Depending on how long you have been in the workforce, you may be entitled to a monthly stipend to support you.
If you are denied SSD, you may need to take legal action to protect your future. You have the right to request an appeal through the Social Security Appeals Council. You must submit your written request for an appeal within 60 days from the date of denial. Some appeals go through a hearing while others are approved by a third party before ever making it to a hearing. If you go to a hearing but are denied again, you have the right to take up a lawsuit with the federal court. If your appeal is denied in federal court, you will have no further opportunities to appeal the decision about your SSD application. It is important to have an experienced attorney assist you through the appeals process and fight for your future.
