Social Security Disability Income is a federal program that's designed to provide financial assistance in the form of wage replacement for families whose primary wage earner has become disabled or died. The wage earner must have paid a certain amount of Social Security taxes in order to receive these benefits. Sometimes a disability that leaves a person without the capability to work may not be considered qualified for SSDI and a Louisiana Social Security Disability attorney may be needed to prove otherwise.
A Louisiana Social Security Disability attorney knows what a person needs to be qualified and understands that the application process can be confusing. They also know that in some cases a disability can prevent someone from being able to work even if the application reviewers don't see it that way. The attorney provides support for their client's claim to prove they are indeed qualified and need financial support. In order for the attorney to prove this, they will need medical records and financial statements that show the client's circumstances. An attorney will be better able to serve their client if the client's primary doctor agrees with the need for SSDI.
SSDI does work in conjunction with other financial assistance programs such as workman's comp but may lead to less income than if a person only was to receive Social Security Disability Income. An attorney can speak on their client's behalf and show the discrepancy with the assistance. If an appeal needs to be filed after a claim has been denied, the Louisiana Social Security Disability attorney handles paperwork and correspondence with the Social Security administration. While no one is required to have an attorney to file for SSDI, an attorney is a good investment for faster results and a greater chance of winning the claim.
