Craig Swapp & Associates is now accepting clients who have been denied Social Security Disability benefits.
Sandy, UT (PRWEB) May 21, 2012
Craig Swapp & Associates is now accepting Social Security disability cases involving clients who have been denied Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and/or Supplemental Security Income (SSI). The firm is accepting new Social Security disability clients in Utah, Idaho and Washington.
Says Managing Attorney Craig Swapp, “Social Security was originally set up to help those people who are truly in need and yet cannot earn a regular paycheck. For the truly disabled, trying to receive their Social Security benefits can be frustrating and confusing for the individual or family members. Many Americans have paid into the system throughout their working careers and should be eligible for SSDI or SSI benefits. Our Social Security practice area has been established to help these people and their families in their time of need.”
According to Swapp, the Social Security Administration (SSA) routinely denies many valid claims with little or no consideration for the claimants’ specific circumstances. At that point, the person may ask the government for ‘reconsideration’ of the denied application. If that reconsideration is denied by the SSA, he or she then faces a hearing before an Office of Disability Adjudication and Review (ODAR) judge.
Craig Swapp & Associates’ Social Security disability attorney practice area helps individuals understand what benefits they qualify for and assists with the application submission. If the application is denied, the firm’s attorneys and ODAR advocates can file for reconsideration or a hearing before a local judge. The firm’s attorneys can also appeal a denied claim on the Federal Court level.
“If a disabled person has dependent children, additional Social Security Disability Insurance benefits can be paid out for those children, even if the spouse is currently employed,” says Swapp. “Our law firm can help those disabled individuals with children understand which SSDI benefits their families are eligible for and help them apply for them.”
