SOCIAL SECURITY DISABILITY

While Social Security provides vital benefits for millions of Americans with disabilities, the reality is that applying for disability benefits is a complicated process, and many applications are denied because of errors on the part of Social Security or the person applying. In fact, roughly 70 percent of claims for disability benefits are denied at first, though many of those applications are eventually approved upon appeal.

At Keating Law Firm, LLC, we understand how frustrating and worrisome a claim denial can be, and we are committed to helping clients in New Orleans, Metairie and across Louisiana apply for and receive the disability benefits they deserve.

HELPING YOU AT EVERY STAGE OF THE SSDI PROCESS

Social Security Disability Insurance — often called SSDI or SSD — is a government insurance program designed to assist people with disabilities. If you have a medical condition that prevents you from working, then you may be eligible for disability benefits.

People who are approved for SSDI benefits must have either paid enough taxes into the program or accumulated enough work credits. The disabling condition must also have lasted continuously for at least 12 months or be expected to last for at least 12 months.

The disability law attorneys of Keating Law Firm are prepared to help at every stage of the application process — from the initial filing to the hearing before an Administrative Law Judge and, if necessary, on to the court of appeals.

We are familiar with the questions people often have about applying for disability benefits in Louisiana, and our lawyers are ready to listen to your concerns, gather and organize the necessary medical evidence, and handle your claim efficiently and effectively from start to finish.
