Get The Disability Benefits You Have Earned
Whether you are thinking about applying for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), or you have already applied and been turned down by the Social Security Administration, your next move should be to contact an SSDI lawyer. The law firm of Jerry Persky helps disabled people in Los Angeles with experienced, efficient legal representation to get the disability benefits they need and deserve.
How Does SSDI Work?
Since 1981, attorney Jerry J. Persky has helped people struggling to make ends meet because a disability makes it virtually impossible to work. The federal SSDI program grants benefits to people who have paid a certain amount into the program in taxes from prior income, but now have become disabled and unable to work. The amount of benefits you may qualify for depends on how much you earned and how many years you worked.
Hundreds Of Qualifying Conditions
SSDI covers a broad range of illnesses, injuries and conditions. Here are a few examples:
- Impaired vision and hearing loss
- Chronic heart failure and other cardiovascular conditions
- Severe back or joint pain
- Immune system diseases like HIV/AIDS and kidney disease
- Mental illnesses like depression and schizophrenia, along with intellectual disabilities and autism
Convincing the Social Security Administration (SSA) that you are eligible for benefits is not easy. The agency typically demands extensive medical records and other documents to support your claim, and rejects most initial applications.
Don’t Give Up On Your Claim
If you have been turned down for SSD benefits, call Jerry Persky. We will use our deep knowledge of the system to give you an edge during your appeal. You do not pay attorney’s fees until you are awarded benefits, so there is no financial risk to you.
