When a Michigan resident becomes disabled, he or she is bound to have countless questions about Social Security Disability. It can be overwhelming to think of all the matters one has to take care of after suffering an accident that causes a disability, but experienced and compassionate help is available. The Social Security Disability attorneys at Miller Cohen PLC can answer all of a person’s questions regarding the federal program and how to get started.
One of the more common questions is: is my condition a qualifying disability? Nowadays, there are a huge variety of conditions that are qualifying disabilities for Social Security Disability. These can range from “obvious” physical disabilities such as paralysis, to less-visible but severely limiting disorders such as diagnosed mental illnesses, and many others in-between. A person with a qualifying disability can’t begin receiving benefits, though, until he or she has gone through the process of documenting their condition, getting the right paperwork submitted and properly applying for benefits.
Other common questions include: How much in benefits will I receive? How long do benefits last? Can I still work while on disability? How might these benefits affect retirement Social Security benefits? All of these inquiries and many more can be answered thoroughly with the help of a Michigan Social Security Disability attorney.
Getting a lawyer seems like a huge step, but it’s one that often proves extremely cost-effective because it cuts down on the applicant’s time spent trying to figure out a complicated process.
