Des Moines Disability Claims Attorneys
When you are injured and are unable to work, you will most likely need financial help. Applying for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits is an option if a disability or an illness prevents you from returning to work for twelve months or longer. However, if you do not present a strong case, your application may be denied. Even if you meet all the benefit requirements for Social Security Disability, there is a strong possibility of your claim being rejected because you did fill out the application correctly or it is missing some important information. Most initial social security disability applications are denied within the first two stages of the application process.
If you become disabled and cannot work, you are already dealing with stressful financial and health issues, so filing for disability benefits can be an overwhelming task. An experienced Social Security disability claims lawyer will be able to advise you every step through this complicated and lengthy process to ensure that you can obtain benefits.
If you need help filing an SSD claim, contact the Des Moines disability insurance claims attorneys at LaMarca Law Group, P.C. Our experienced legal counsel can help you every step of the way. Call us at (515) 225-2600 to schedule a free consultation.
How a Disability Claims Lawyer Can Help
Approximately 70% of all SSD applications are rejected on the first try, so seeking assistance from an experienced social security disability lawyer is always a good idea. A disability claims lawyer can evaluate the strength of your case and provide legal assistance with filing your SSD application. The Social Security Administration is more likely to approve the application for someone represented by an attorney than an individual who is not.
A skilled lawyer can develop your Social Security disability claim based on your work history, health issues, and age. An attorney can demonstrate how your illness and injury developed and how it prevents you from working. An experienced legal team can also assist in obtaining the medical evidence necessary to support your claim and ensure that it is approved.
In the first and second levels of appeals, a lawyer can gather and submit medical evidence, obtain a doctor’s medical opinion, write a detailed brief, and help prepare you for questions that may be asked by a judge at your SSD hearing. An attorney will also guide you through the process of preparing your testimony as well as provide any medical or vocational experts that will help bolster your claim.

Social Security Disability Compensation
If you are unable to work for a year or longer, you could be eligible for either Social Security disability (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI). Although these are federal programs, the state of Iowa works with the Social Security Administration. The state also supplements federal SSI payments and sets the Medicaid eligibility guidelines.
SSD benefits are based on the amount of income on which you have paid social security taxes over the years. The amount of your benefits is determined by calculating 90% of your average indexed monthly earnings. The final number is the maximum amount of SSD benefits that you will be able to receive.
Figuring out whether you qualify for SSD benefits and how much money you should be receiving on your own is difficult, which is why you should contact LaMarca Law Group, P.C. for assistance. If you believe you are not receiving as much money as you should be, or if your claim is denied entirely, we can investigate your situation and appeal your claim.
