Filing a Social Security Disability Benefits Application?

We can help!

The number one thing you need to know is that meeting the Social Security Administration’s (SSA) strict definition of “disabled” can be difficult.

The Social Security Administration will only consider you “disabled” if:

  • You can no longer perform work you used to;
  • A doctor or other medical professional deems you unable to perform other work because of your medical condition(s); and
  • Your physical or mental condition has lasted or is expected to last for at least one year or to result in death..

Let disability attorney Frank Hanley and his legal team help prove your disability to the Social Security Administration. Call us today for help applying.

Need to Appeal Your Denial?

Contact Frank Hanley right away! Under Social Security’s rules, you have only 60 days to file your appeal. Getting denied on your first attempt is normal, so don’t be discouraged.

The process to appeal can be a very complicated and time-consuming process, but it’s still possible for you to win benefits. The clock is ticking so don’t delay in filing your appeal if you’ve received a denial letter. Call us today for a free consultation of your disability claim.

At The Law Offices of J. Frank Hanley II, Inc., we know the process and can file a Request for Reconsideration on your behalf. If your Request for Reconsideration is denied, we can request a hearing before an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ). If an ALJ denies your case, we can present your case before the Appeals Council.

Contact Frank Hanley today to discuss your Social Security Disability case.
