Frequently Asked Questions

Loveland Social Security Disability Lawyer

What does Social Security Disability Insurance provide?

If you are or have recently become unable to work due to a disability, you may be eligible to receive financial benefits from the federal government if your disability will continue for more than 12 months. To find out more about your benefits and eligibility you should speak to a Loveland social security disability attorney at Busch Law Offices and receive a free consultation.

What kinds of disabilities are covered?

Any serious physical disease or disability that prevents you from working including such things as cancer, HIV, serious injuries that require lengthy rehabilitative care, debilitating injuries to the spine, head or limbs may also be covered. Your disability must be thoroughly documented with medical diagnosis and treatment records made available.

I have already filed a claim myself that was denied. What can I do now?

You can and should request an appeal of your denied claim. Unfortunately, most individuals who submit their claims themselves are usually denied. Getting the experienced help from a skilled social security disability insurance attorney who understands all the documentation and information that is required can make all the difference in having your claim approved. It is also important to realize that making an appearance before an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) can be crucial to not only reverse the earlier denial but to award you past-due benefits you should have received.

Why should I hire an attorney?

Primarily because you want to be approved and the application can be quite complex and difficult to understand. We know what the exact requirements are and what is needed to show that you are truly disabled and qualify for the coverage. You must also have worked and paid taxes for at least five of the past ten years to be eligible. Your application must show that will be unable to work due to your disability for at least the next 12 months. The paperwork involved is quite substantial. As your legal representative we can help you compile and submit all the necessary forms and reports for your application to be approved.
