Helping People With Serious Disabilities Get the Benefits They Deserve
The pursuit of a Social Security Disability Insurance Benefits (SSD/DIB) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) claim can be a challenging and drawn-out affair. A great deal is at stake in these claims, since people who are unable to work often rely on SSD and SSI benefits to meet their basic financial needs.
The Social Security Administration turns down almost 65 percent of people who first apply for disability. Every year, more than 1 million claimants give up on their claims, even though many of them continue to suffer from serious physical, mental and emotional challenges.
Fortunately, success can often be achieved with the help of a knowledgeable and persistent disability benefits lawyer. Approximately a half million claimants who pursue their claims through the appeals process eventually win the benefits they are legally entitled to.
Guiding Clients Through Every Aspect of the Social Security Process
At the law firm of Portland Social Security Disability and SSI attorney Richard A. Sly, we help clients in Oregon and Washington fight for and obtain the disability benefits they need to pay their medical bills, keep their homes and retirement accounts, and meet their daily living needs.
Mr. Sly has practiced disability law for more than 30 years. He has handled thousands of claims, including hundreds of appeals before administrative law judges, the Appeals Council and the federal courts. He and our firm can help you address issues such as the following:
- Social Security benefits: We understand what types of disability benefits are available from Social Security and can help you determine which program is right for you.
- Qualifying disorders: If you are unable to work due to a physical, mental or emotional disability, we can help you assess whether your condition qualifies you for benefits.
- Common questions: We are highly knowledgeable about the federal disability benefit programs and can answer any questions you may have about SSD and SSI benefits.
- Long-term disability benefits: While our practice is dedicated to Social Security claims, we will also refer clients for help to obtain benefits from private long-term disability plans.
If you are considering filing or appealing an SSD or SSI claim, our firm can help. We know what circumstances can needlessly delay a claim, and we are fully familiar with the medical and "human" information needed to get the attention of Social Security Administration officials.
