Social Security Disability
No matter how hard we try to stay young, 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. After decades of working, many boomers now find they have health-related problems, which may affect their ability to produce at previous high levels or to effectively perform their job at all.
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 disability benefits. If you are 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. We’ve helped hundreds of people apply and receive Social Security disability benefits since 1981.
If you are 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, while Brent was at a disability hearing with his client, someone from the community would come up to Brent and ask “Are you my attorney?” Brent had to tell them “No.” Unfortunately, another firm who only talked to them over the phone, or had them fill out a questionnaire on the internet “represented” these people.
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.
