Social Security for 55 and Older
Pittsburgh Social Security Attorney
When you are no longer able to work because of a disabling injury or illness, you are eligible to apply for benefits through the Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) system. As part of the application process, your state’s Social Security Disability Determination Services will examine your disability to determine whether you can be retrained to accept work in another professional field. For workers over 55 years old, retraining and finding employment in a new career field is extremely difficult, without uprooting home and family and moving to another city or state.
If you are an older worker who is filing for SSDI, you do not have to accept the Determination Services’ decision that you can be retrained and find work in another profession. Talk to an attorney at Dallas W. Hartman, P.C., today. We have years of experience fighting on behalf of people 55 and older who have been paying into the Social Security Disability Insurance system all of their adult lives, only to be told they can’t receive benefits when their injury or illness puts them out of work. We know the rules, and we know how to get your initial application or appeal through the system successfully.
You Will Not Pay Attorneys’ Fees If You Do Not Collect Benefits
We handle all Social Security Disability claims on a contingency-fee basis. The percentage amount we charge is based on the amount of your monthly benefits and is capped by federal law. We offer a free consultation to discuss the circumstances of your disability or injury.
