You work hard and you pay into Social Security every year with the promise and expectation that Social Security will return benefits to you when you become eligible. If you become disabled, you may be entitled to Social Security Disability benefits if your disability has lasted or is expected to last 12 months.
Claims for these benefits should be filed as soon as you can. In addition to present and future benefits, you may be able to collect back benefits. Your family members may also be entitled to benefits under your case. Filing a benefits claim does not automatically entitle you to benefits. Unfortunately, the fact is, most claims are initially denied regardless of physical and mental disabilities.

When you file a Social Security benefits claim, you state that you are eligible for benefits and are requesting that those benefits be paid to you. In some cases, the issue of eligibility is not clear cut to the Social Security Administration. In the majority of those cases, the Social Security Administration will routinely deny your claim. When this happens, there is a series of appeals available to you, including an appeal to federal district court. As experienced Macon Social Security Disability lawyers, we can assist you through the appeals process.
