Common Questions About Social Security Disability Claims

1. “I have disabling condition that requires medication and other expensive treatments. I am struggling with paying my medical bills. Will these be covered by my Social Security disability benefits?”

Houston Social Security Disability ClaimsSocial Security on the basis of disability is a financial benefit granted by the government for a chronic condition that leaves the patient unable to work. Once you are approved for disability, you may use the money to buy medication and pay for medical bills, although it is not specifically allotted for it. Social Security Disability does not focus on one particular disease. Instead, it takes into account your medical condition and whether it hinders you from doing the job you were previously employed in.

2. “My disability claim has been denied. This is very scary and disheartening. I don’t know what to do.”

Unfortunately, this is not uncommon. About 60% of all Social Security disability claims are initially denied. When this happens to you, the disability attorneys at The Law Offices Of M. Stanley Whitehead, we are here to help you evaluate your options.

3. “Can I appeal the Social Security Administration’s decision if they deny my claim? And if yes, what is the process?”

Yes, with a competent legal team on your side, the chances of winning an appeal case are much better. However, an appeal has to be made within 60 days. Once the appeal is filed, the Social Security Administration will review your claim and determine whether the denial was incorrect. This has to be done by someone who was not involved in your initial denial. If this reconsideration remains unsuccessful, you may now request a hearing about your case. This hearing will be conducted by an Administrative Law Judge not previously involved in your Social Security disability claims denial and at a court within 75 miles of your home. In some cases, a hearing may be held via video conference. Learn more about the Social Security disability denials appeal process.

4. “I know I am disabled. Should I file for Social Security disability benefits or file another type of disability claim?”

There are different ways you can file a disability claim depending on your personal condition and circumstances. If you have become disabled due to an injury on the job, you may be eligible for workers compensation. If your disability was caused by an accident, you may be able to file a personal injury claim. If you are suffering from a disabling condition, a Social Security disability attorney can help determine which benefits are best suited to your circumstances.

"I would highly recommend this firm to everyone, Wonderful firm, they took my case , when I was told by a few firms in Ohio that I did not have a case, Marc Whitehead and Associates settled the case in a timely fashion"  Delecia via
"I want to thank the office of Marc Whitehead and especially Jaime Almaguer who was my caseworker. I had begun the disability process myself until I heard about this lawyers' office in Texas. Seemed strange working with folks across the country that I would never meet. Nevertheless, they were able to get my disability first time around. I felt comfortable discussing my issues privately with them and being able to let Jaime do the work. He was responsive, caring and very professional. Thank you all so much, this has changed my life."  Lynne via
