Social Security Disability

Understanding Social Security Disability Benefits

Have you been denied in your application for Social Security Disability benefits? First, you’re not alone. And second, we can help.

It goes without saying that most people don’t want to have to resort to filing a disability claim. People want to be able to work for a living and have that sense of independence. Unfortunately, not everyone is able to have that luxury. Whether it’s a work injury, degenerative changes after decades of manual labor, or even a mental health condition, there are many who are simply unable to work given their condition.

The Social Security system was created to ensure that workers would have at least some disability insurance and to ensure that those who are truly destitute and don’t have a job are able to have a chance at having a roof over their head and food on their plate.

The sad part about the system is that the vast majority of Social Security Disability claims are denied. It is only through the appeals process that most people are able to secure the benefits they need. Whether you’re applying for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI), the Social Security Administration denies almost all cases. We tell our clients that unless you’re missing an arm or a leg, you’ll most likely get denied at first.

The attorneys of Marcotte Law Firm have a very high success rate of qualifying our clients for Social Security Disability income. We know how to explain our client’s medical condition in a way that shows the Social Security Administration that they are unable to work.

We represent residents of northern Massachusetts (Middlesex and Essex counties) and southern New Hampshire (Rockingham and Hillsborough counties).

Experience You Can Count on

Our highly experienced attorneys can help whether you are applying for the first time or you have been turned down once or even twice for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI).

The Social Security Administration turns most applicants down on the first application. We succeed on behalf of clients at the initial application, reconsideration and appeals stages because:

  • We have a solid working knowledge of the SSA’s eligibility standard, and we know from experience what they are looking for.
  • We know what’s required in medical records, and we work in conjunction with your physician to articulate your disability to the satisfaction of the agency.

If you are unable to work because of an injury or illness, we understand that you are anxious about income to cover medical bills and your other expenses. We understand that while you apply for benefits, you most likely don’t have any money coming in.

Marcotte Law Firm is often successful in obtaining benefits for clients, and we work as efficiently as possible to get you qualified and get your monthly Social Security checks coming in. In the very rare event that we are unsuccessful on your behalf, we do not charge any attorneys’ fees.
