Social Security Disability

Our bodies begin to wear down and break down – both physically and mentally – as we get older. Over 50% of the workforce in the United States today is made up of the Baby Boomer generation – meaning over half of working men and women are approaching 60 years of age. Over the course of their career, many have health-related problems which may affect their ability to produce at previous high levels or to effectively perform their job at all.

If you’re 50 years of age or older and are unable to work because of physical or mental medical conditions, you may qualify for Social Security Disability. Many people have taken early retirement in their mid to late 50’s or early 60’s due to medical conditions not realizing they may qualify for benefits. We’ve helped hundreds of people apply and receive Social Security Disability.

If you’re under 50 years of age, you can still receive Social Security Disability. However, the requirements are much more detailed regarding physical and mental medical conditions necessary to be awarded benefits. Brent has helped numerous families receive short-term or permanent Social Security Disability benefits for a loved one in need.

On numerous occasions, Brent has appreared in Federal Court to represent a client and someone from our community comes up to him and asks, “Are you my attorney?” Unfortunately, he’s had to tell them “No.” They were represented by a firm who has only talked to them over the phone or had them fill out a questionnaire on the internet.

Brent always takes the time to meet with clients in person before applying or appearing in court for their Social Security Disability hearing. Call 816-233-0257 today for your free, initial consultation.
