Social Security Disability
A mental, physical, and/or medical disability which prevents you from engaging in gainful activity and that is expected to last for at least one-year or result in death may qualify you to receive SSD. Additionally, you may be eligible for SSD if:
- You are under 65 years of age and are a disabled, insured worker
- You became disabled prior to turning 22 years of age, and are a dependent of a deceased, insured parent who was entitled to receive disability or retirement benefits
- You are a disabled window, or widower, aged 50-60 years, and your deceased spouse was insured under Social Security
An individual is "insured" if they paid into the Social Security Trust Fund through the taxes on their earnings. To discuss your eligibility for SSD, contact our office.
Social Security Disability Appeals
If you filed for SSD and your application was denied, do not give up. Mr. Petty can help you request a reconsideration hearing, file an appeal with the Social Security Appeals Council, or pursue your claim in Federal District Court.
