    Tahlequah SSDI Lawyers Help You Qualify for Disability Benefits

    It seems simple enough that if you’re forced out of work by medical issues before you reach retirement age, you could just explain that to Social Security and qualify for financial assistance.

    But it’s not so simple. Social Security is under pressure to check, double-check, confirm and re-confirm that everybody who receive benefits is truly sick enough to stop working.

    Social Security has a highly specific way of defining a “disability:”

    • Your health problems must be severe.
    • You can’t work, hardly at all, and the reason is your health.
    • Your inability to work because of bad health will last at least a year.

    You have to prove each of these points using medical evidence and other documentation. Applying for benefits is labor-intensive. Usually you get denied and need to appeal.

    Experienced Social Security attorneys know what to do.

    In fact, in the next section we’ll break down further the points you have to confirm to Social Security.

    When you work with a Social Security Disability lawyer, YOU NEVER PAY AN ATTORNEY FEE UNLESS YOU WIN BENEFITS.

    If you’re in Tahlequah, you can get Troutman & Troutman to look at your situation and give you an idea of what could go into your disability benefits claim—at no cost or obligation.

    With his medical coat on and stethoscope around his neck, a doctor looks at a patient in a wheelchair. The Tahlequah Social Security Disability lawyers at Troutman & Troutman help you through the five steps of qualifying for Social Security Disability benefits.

    Guide for Tahlequah Residents: 5 Steps to Getting Disability Benefits

    To confirm that you have a health impairment that rules out working for at least a year, Social Security will run your case through a series of tests.

    Each step requires its own supporting documentation. The Social Security attorneys at Troutman & Troutman handle the legwork for you.

    These are the steps our Tahlequah SSDI lawyers help you navigate:

    1. Showing that you’re not working. You can’t work much and also be approved for Social Security Disability. You have to be careful about how much you earn.
    2. Showing that your medical conditions are severe. Using records from your medical treatment, you can demonstrate to Social Security how much your health problems limit your daily activities.
    3. Matching your impairment to Social Security’s list. Social Security provides guidelines for getting disability benefits with many diseases and injuries. If your diagnosis fits, showing this can be central to winning benefits. If you don’t exactly fit a qualifying impairment, you can still show that your symptoms are equivalent to one.
    4. Showing that you can’t continue in your work. You’ve got to take the limitations on your health, hold them up to the requirements of your recent jobs, and explain how you can’t keep doing those jobs.
    5. Showing you can’t switch to other work. Social Security doesn’t stop with looking at jobs you’ve done before. They also want to know if any other job exists that you could still do despite your health. You again must counter this with medical evidence.

    You’re already going through a tough time. It’s too bad you have to go through all this just to get help you deserve—and that earned by paying taxes to Social Security.

    The Troutman & Troutman Oklahoma disability lawyers make it our mission to help people in Tahlequah get over the hurdles and onto a better situation after a life-altering health crisis.

    In an impersonal process, we believe in providing personal care and attention for you. Rather than treat you like a number, we listen and build a relationship with you.

    In Tahlequah, call us and get help to move forward.

    “(My disability lawyer) was professional and very knowledgeable. She explained how Social Security determines eligibility in a way that was understandable. She and her staff were quick to respond to emails or phone calls. She won an appeal of a denial of disability benefits for my son. I highly recommend if you need help with a Social Security matter.”
