When you can't work, because you have become disabled, you are essentially experiencing an enforced retirement. But not the kind of retirement you might have been hoping to enjoy. However, it doesn't need to be a disaster.
Social Security Disability (SSD) insurance pays monthly cash benefits to people who have paid enough FICA taxes to qualify, and are now unable to work for a year or more because of a disability. After a waiting period, SSD eligibility also allows you to receive Medicare benefits — even if you are under age 65.
Many people turn to attorneys or advocates for help with obtaining SSD benefits. At Binder & Binder®, the National Social Security Disability advocates, we tell people to contact us as soon as you and your doctors agree that your disability is going to last a full year. If you are thinking about applying for disability benefits, talk with us at Binder & Binder® because we will handle your SSD claim for you from the very beginning, or at any other stage of your case. It's not true, as so many people think, that you must apply first on your own. We can do that for you. Our fees are regulated by the government. And they are the same no matter at what stage we take on your case. As we say in our commercials, "We'll deal with the government, you have enough to worry about."
At Binder & Binder®, we will file your claim carefully and professionally. That's going to take a big weight off your shoulders. If you have already filed, we will put your claim back on track.
