Social Security Red Tape
Like many government run programs, Social Security can be filled with complex forms, demands for information and just plain red tape. Did you know that your first SSDI payment commonly doesn’t start until your sixth month of disability? In addition, you may not be aware that the majority of first time claims are denied by the Social Security Administration. There are several things that can become painfully clear when you start the process of obtaining benefits.
The first is that you are going to need someone’s help in order to get the payments you need and the second is that it is important to get going now on filing a claim. This is where I, as a recognized Texarkana Social Security disability lawyer, can be of great help to you and your family. I start by getting to know you, your individual situation and answering any questions you may have on Social Security and how it works. The next step is to establish whether you are eligible for benefits and, if so, under what program.

The next part of the process, filing a claim, is best founded on a working knowledge of what the Social Security Administration wants, plus the ability to document and provide evidence to support your application. I would be less than honest if I didn’t tell you that even a properly prepared claim can be denied at first. This is not uncommon and does not need to be a cause for worry.
The Social Security Administration has an appeals process in place that I am thoroughly familiar with. At The Law Office of Mike Angel, I know what to do at each step of the process and have successfully appealed many claims in the past. For those who have served our country in the armed forces, I help veterans who are seeking disability benefits and pension payments.
