You were counting on Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits to put you back on steady ground when you had to stop working because of bad health.
But you were denied. You appealed and were denied again. And again. And again.
Your remaining avenue of appeal is going to federal court.
The disability law firm of Harder, Wells, Baron & Manning can help.
Not every law firm handles federal Social Security Disability appeals. It’s a special kind of law, different from Social Security’s benefits process. We have a disability lawyer dedicated to these cases.
Our lawyers have more than 60 years of combined experience helping people in Oregon win disability benefits.
We have offices in Eugene-Springfield, Albany, Roseburg, Coos Bay and Medford.
Don’t give up hope. Monthly income from disability benefits could still change your life for the better.
Before you reach federal court with your SSD appeal, you go through these steps within Social Security:
Only after all that do you go to federal court.
You’re going outside Social Security and filing a lawsuit against it. Officially, you’re suing the Commissioner of Social Security.
Here are two important points to consider:
If your medical condition has sharply changed since your last appeal, you may need to weigh whether it’s better to go to federal court or reapply for benefits.
A decision like that takes someone with experience in disability law.
You can get Harder, Wells, Baron & Manning disability lawyers to provide an initial review of your case at no cost to you.
This is what happens in a federal court disability appeal:
What happens next?
The federal judge can deny or award your benefits. Or the judge could order Social Security to reopen your case and change its decision.
This is a long path for you. But we make sure you’re not on it alone.
If you work with our firm on your initial application, you’ll be able to stay with the same firm to the end. If another firm you’ve been working with can’t assist you with a federal court appeal, you can come to us to discuss your options.
THERE’S NO FEE UNTIL YOU WIN BENEFITS.
The payment for back benefits and monthly disability income going forward sure would make your path ahead easier.
