The Rise of Social Security Disability Claims

NPR is doing a series this week on the increase in the number of people receiving Social Security Disability. NPR went to Hale County, Alabama where 1 in 4 people are on disability. This is a very interesting report, but it leaves out some important factors. First, this report fails to talk about the requirements for getting on disability. It fails to note that there people can have several severe impairments that, if combined, will make them disabled. Second, it does not discuss the requirement that Social Security takes into account your education, your work history for the past 15 years, and your age.

"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
