Massachusetts Social Security Disability Lawyers
If you’re unable to work in Massachusetts due to any combination of significant injuries or illnesses, you may have rights to government-administered Social Security Disability benefits under the Social Security Act. However, most applications filed without the assistance of experienced disability lawyers are denied, usually forcing an extended disability appeal which can last for two or more years. Meanwhile, a successful application represented by a Massachusetts SSD attorney will result in disability payments being disbursed to you in the form of a U.S Treasury check starting with the sixth month of your extended disability (there is a five month waiting period during which the government does not pay for your disability).
Our Massachusetts disability lawyers will help you obtain the benefits you’re entitled to.
If you’re at least 62 years of age and thinking about collecting the Social Security Early Retirement option because you can no longer perform your customary work due to injuries, it is best to speak with our Massachusetts SSD lawyers. Our SSD attorneys may be able to show you how to preserve your full retirement benefits while collecting tens of thousands of dollars under the early retirement program, as detailed in Titles II and/or XVI of the Social Security Act.
If you are a Massachusetts widow[er] over 50 and you’ve become disabled within 5 years of your spouse’s passing, you may be able to claim Social Security Disability benefits on your deceased spouse’s higher earnings record, thereby increasing the amount of money the government sends you for your disability payments each month.
If you’ve had a prior application that has been denied within the prior four years, our Social Security Disability attorneys can make a motion to re-open that application.
The best chance to receive SSD benefits without complications is to consult with a knowledgeable Massachusetts SSD attorney. Call our attorneys for a free case evaluation.
If you’ve got a hearing that has already been scheduled, call our Massachusetts SSD lawyers with the date and time of your Social Security hearing. Understand that if you appear at a hearing without a disability attorney, the judge will request that you consider postponing your hearing in order to allow an experienced Social Security lawyer to provide you with a better chance of winning. Appearing without experienced counsel can result in waiver of rights or failure to recognize what objections should be raised or preserved in the process.
