Apply for Social Security Disability in Indianapolis

Whether Social Security considers you “disabled” in Indiana is determined by your inability to work. Under Social Security’s rules, you’re consider disabled if:

  • You can no longer do the work you did before;
  • The SSA decides you are unable to adjust to other work because of your medical condition(s); and
  • Your disability has lasted or is likely to last for at least one year or to result in death.

Social Security pays only for total disability, not a partial disability.

Is applying for benefits difficult?

Yes. You may think it’s as simple as explaining your situation to Social Security and then you get disability benefits. In reality, it’s not that easy to receive disability benefits.

The application process is a complex legal matter. You must prove to Social Security that you are “disabled” according to their legal definition.

But we can help. Indiana disability lawyer Frank Hanley and his team have years of experience helping people with their disability applications so let us help you with yours.

Why are most initial applications denied?

The Social Security Disability system involves thousands of rules, regulations, and procedures. You can be denied benefits if your doctor doesn’t know the legal definition of disability, or if a Social Security employee fails to obtain medical evidence on your behalf. You can also lose your case if an appeal is handled improperly.

How likely am I to win benefits?
