Connecticut SSDI Lawyers

Determining eligibility for Social Security Disability Insurance benefits

Eligibility for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSD) benefits appears fairly simple. First, you must have sustained injuries or developed an illness that prevents you from working in any job for at least a year, or that a doctor has determined will be fatal. Second, you must have worked enough “quarters” under the Social Security system to obtain benefits from the system. You must have worked five of the last ten years.

A lawyer can help

Not surprisingly, however, building a case for the federal benefit is not quite as simple as it appears. Because of the complexities of the application process, people who are represented by attorneys usually have a better chance of obtaining the outcome they need. At the New Milford, Connecticut, law firm of Guendelsberger Law Offices, LLP, attorneys help people navigate the SSD system. We handle everything, from initial application through appeals and hearings. Contact us to learn how we can help. It costs you nothing until you win your case, and the amount an attorney can charge is capped by the government.
