If you are sick, injured, or suffer from a psychological problem, your job and income can vanish just as easily as your health. If you are no longer able to work, Social Security benefits can help make all the difference to you and your family. You may be entitled to Social Security Disability Insurance (SSD or SSDI) benefits and/or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits.
Applying for Social Security benefits can be very confusing and frustrating. These are some common questions:
The answers to these questions vary from person to person. If you are trying to answer these questions yourself by speaking to the Social Security Administration, you are making a mistake. While they can be helpful, they can only give generalized answers that may or may not address your particular circumstances. You need a skilled attorney who not only understands the SSA (Social Security Administration) requirements, but also understands the system in Northern Kentucky, and how the system works in order to protect your rights.
Northern Kentucky attorney Greg Kriege has been helping people qualify Social Security benefits for more than three decades. He will analyze your claim, develop a plan to go forward, file the necessary paperwork, obtain the medical proof, prepare your case for the hearing, represent you at that hearing, and even appeal to the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Kentucky if necessary.
To begin your Social Security claim, you should file the initial application. This can be done online or in person at your local Social Security office. If your claim is denied, contact Greg Kriege immediately. A notice of representation form must be signed, and a request for reconsideration must be filed quickly. The notice of representation form explains that the attorney's fee is 25% of your past due benefits. This means you do not need to have money up front to get your case started.
