Helping Maryland residents secure SSD benefits

Individuals, who suffer from chronic illnesses or medical conditions, suffer a debilitating injury or were born with a physical or mental disability often face many life and financial challenges. In cases where one's condition makes it difficult to impossible to work, these challenges are often magnified and can result in an individual and his or her family suffering overly-burdensome financial hardships.

Individuals with qualifying disabling medical conditions or injuries may qualify to receive government assistance in the form of Social Security disability benefits. Monthly benefits awarded via SSD provides individuals who have no or limited means of earning an income, much-needed financial assistance to afford basic necessities like housing, clothing and food.

The process of applying for SSD benefits can be especially arduous and complex. According to the Social Security Administration website, from 2001 to 2010, on average 72 percent of first-time SSD applications were denied. Thankfully, there is an appeals process through which denied SSD applicants can request that their applications be re-examined and reconsidered. However, the entire SSD determination and appeals process can take months.

For individuals who are unable to work due to a disability, time is of the essence. Maryland residents who plan to apply for SSD benefits can benefit from the advice and assistance provided by an attorney at McGowan & Cecil, LLC. During the initial application process, an attorney who has successfully handled SSD claims and understands why applications are accepted and denied can be an invaluable resource.

In addition to assisting with the preparation and filing of an initial SSD application, the attorneys at McGowan & Cecil, LLC can also assist during the application appeals process and help ensure that deadlines are met, procedures followed and that an application is comprehensive and compelling.
