The amount of applications that are denied by the Social Security Administration is shockingly high. Even though the type of disability a person lives with does not influence whether the individual will be approved, the Social Security Administration heavily scrutinizes applications. It can take several attempts before an application is approved. By working with a Social Security Disability attorney at Barkan Meizlish DeRose Cox, LLP, you can count on having someone by your side throughout the entire application process.

Individuals who have lived with disabilities from birth and individuals who have become disabled later in their lives alike may qualify for Social Security Disability Income. However, there are specifications that an applicant must fit into. As an applicant, you must:
There are some exceptions to these guidelines, and during the application process, your attorney will help you make sure you are taking all the appropriate steps. The primary qualification for the disability an applicant suffers from is that it impairs their ability to work whether the disability has been a lifelong condition or occurred later in life. However, workplace injuries or illnesses that do not have permanent effects on a person’s ability to work might be better handled by a workers’ compensation or private insurance claim.
The Social Security Disability Income application requires an applicant to submit medical records and treatment history that pertain to their disability, as well as employment documentation and other education details. As the application process moves forward, many applicants are asked to partake in medical assessments conducted by trusted medical professionals. These assessments evaluate both mental and physical conditions.
People living with substantial disabilities often qualify for Social Security Disability Income and Supplemental Security Income. The applications may even be completed at the same time, depending on the applicant’s situation. Supplemental Security Income is a needs-based program, with the primary qualifications being that the disability in question prevents an application from working for a year minimum or has a likely outcome of death. The Supplemental Security Income application requires documentation of investments, household income, expenses, and other such holdings. The SSI attorneys at Barkan Meizlish DeRose Cox, LLP, will aid you in gathering the correct information and determining which programs you qualify for.

“Bob DeRose was a huge help in getting my complaint settled. They were responsive and a huge help with all my questions. Would recommend them to anyone who needs help!”
My experience with this Law firm was phenomenal. I found my way into their offices after an unexpected workplace injury. Initially I was clueless about their performance.
The fact that I was not merely looking out for a supplement for my financial budget, I was simply there to explore whatever compensation was due me since the injury legitimately occcured “during and in the course of my employment”.
After an initial visit to the offices where the necessary documentation were initiated, the rest were simply a phone call for updates. Sometimes it was even needless.
They frankly discussed the pathway as well as the unpredictability of the timing for the process.This was necessary. I took that in good faith. The fact that there was no upfront payment was also a good thing.
Without monitoring my calendar, I waited patiently for the various
phases of the process to unfold.
Finally the claim was settled with so much transparency. The unpredictable journey ended with a check delivered to my mailbox.
In fact communications from this Law office is always expedient. The Front Desk Associate was very helpful and polite at all times. My attorney’s paralegal was always available to play her part whenever necessary.“
“They are top-notch attorneys who are experts in their fields. They do great work and are easy to work with. They care about their clients and always try to do the best job possible for them.”
“I had an amazing experience working with Sandy and Robin on my case. Robin was just a short email or call away from all of my questions. The communication I had with Sandy was just as great. Both Sandy and Robin made sure I knew exactly what was going on with my case at all times. I will be recommending them to others. If I ever need help legal matters in the future, I know I can get the help from Sandy Meizlish.”
