Social Security Disability

Pursuing Social Security Disability benefits without counsel is difficult due to the length and complexity of the process. Initial claims have a high likelihood of being denied. Likewise, claims which are not professionally developed are likely to be denied at subsequent stages in the process. For this reason, representation on a disability claim is critical for every claimant and can even make the difference between winning and losing.

At Coiner, Harrelson and Shelton, P.A., we will help you navigate these difficult and complicated matters. Most successful Social Security Disability claims are won during the Appeals process. Getting your case fully-developed and moved to hearing before an administrative law judge (ALJ) is critical for you, as a claimant, to have the best opportunity at winning disability benefits.

There are strict time limits in your disability claim and it is important to pursue the appeals process quickly and efficiently. We believe it’s extremely important for our claimants to understand how the appeals process works. You are more likely to win your disability case with the help of an experienced disability benefits attorney.

There are two basic eligibility requirements for Social Security Disability. First, you must prove you are medically disabled, as that term is defined by the Social Security Administration. Second, you must have either earned enough work credits to considered "insured" under the SSDI program or your income and assets must be low enough to qualify for the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program. The highest hurdle in a Social Security Disability claim is proving that your medical condition is a disability as defined by the Social Security Administration (SSA).

At Coiner, Harrelson and Shelton, P.A., our focus is to help you obtain Social Security Disability and Supplemental Security Income benefits. We handle claims from the initial application stage, the Request for Reconsideration level, Administrative Law Judge hearings and even to the Appeals Council.

All case evaluation consultations are free.
