Social Security Disability

Maximize the benefits due after an injury.

In addition to claims against responsible parties, injured persons may also be entitled to receive disability benefits from the Social Security Administration.  Pursuing claims for such benefits is important to ensure you receive the maximum support and income following devastating injuries or illnesses.  The Law Offices of Mark Schaffner is experienced in pursuing claims for Social Security Disability benefits and can ensure your entitlement to disability benefits is fully protected.

Do I need to pursue Social Security Disability benefits if I am entitled to Worker’s Compensation or an award against a negligent party?

Social Security Disability (SSDI) is an earned benefit.  You and your employer, over the course of your employment history, pay into Social Security for this benefit.  It is important to pursue your claim for Social Security Disability benefits to ensure your claim is timely and you do not lose an earned benefit.  In addition, the standard for receiving Social Security Disability is different than the standard for other claims, so it is important to pursue all claims to ensure you receive all the support you are entitled to following an injury or illness.  The Law Offices of Mark Schaffner can advise you on your entitlement to disability benefits, advise you on how the benefits relate to other monetary recoveries you may receive and can aggressively represent you before the Social Security Administration in the event your claim for SSDI is not approved.
