BACK OR NECK PAIN AND YOUR SOCIAL SECURITY DISABILITY CASE
The Social Security Administration or Law Judge must determine whether you are able to perform any gainful employment-not just the job you are trained for. How you get through your day-the tasks and errands you can do for yourself, and those you can't-are an important part of your case. Can you fix your own meals? Do your own laundry and clean your house? Do you travel to buy groceries, or to spend time socializing with friends or other groups of people? All these questions, and more, are part of the case you will present to the judge.
What happens after you file a claim for Social Security Disability benefits and you are not immediately granted the benefits you deserve based on your doctor's reports?
I am proud to announce that last year we recovered more than one million dollars in Social Security Disability benefits for our clients.
Congratulations to Christopher Fernandez, who has been an integral part of our firm for several years while also attending law school at night. Chris displayed his gift for persuasive oral argument at the finals of regional rounds of the 68th Annual National Moot Court Competition. We have no doubt he's going to take the rest of the country by storm!
You may have been injured in an accident and unable to work, or you may have a disease or other medical condition--but to win Social Security Disability benefits you must prove to the Social Security Administration that you are unable to engage in "substantial activity," for at least twelve consecutive months.
If you are on Social Security Disability benefits or are about to file for Social Security Disability benefits because you are disabled, and too disabled for all but a minimum of gainful employment, you need to know that the Social Security Administration will be making changes for the coming year.
Si está totalmente incapacitado por una condición médica grave - por una cirugía como la fusión espinal o otra cirugía, reemplazo de hombro o rodilla, diabetes o cáncer, o cualquier otra condición incapacitante grave - una de las partes más importantes de su caso es su "EOD," O su "established onset date" - la fecha que elige Seguro Social come el día que empezó su incapacidad.
