If a disability or medical condition has left you unable to work, you may be eligible to receive benefits through Social Security Disability (SSD). This is a government program that provides payments or benefits for people who are disabled and unable to perform substantial, gainful employment.

In order to receive SSD benefits you must show not only that you are disabled, but also that the disability keeps you from securing employment. You may be required to provide extensive medical records.

Unfortunately, many people who apply for SSD benefits are initially rejected. The attorneys at Taylor King Law can help. We understand the application and appeals process and can guide you through it. If the social security administration wants to determine your disability status in court, we’ll represent you there as well.

Once you are approved, you will receive SSD benefits beginning from the time you were first disabled. This means you could receive a check for backdated disability benefits.
