Assistance with Social Security appeals


ocial Security Disability benefits are like an insurance policy. More specifically called Disability Insurance benefits, if you have paid in enough money over a certain time period and are disabled as defined by the Social Security Administration, you are eligible for benefits. Because the process can be complex and lengthy, having a lawyer to represent your interests is highly recommended.
