Social Security Disability Law Firm in Pennsylvania Focused On Results

Scranton SSD attorneys at O'Malley & Langan have a strong track record of success

Social Security Disability (SSD or SSDI) benefits can be a lifeline for many injured workers in Pennsylvania. This money enables families to pay their bills and remain financially stable. The same applies for people who meet the requirements for Supplemental Security Income (SSI), another government program created to help disabled Americans. But getting these benefits can be a complicated process. O’Malley & Langan can help.

How can I qualify for Social Security Disability benefits?

You may be eligible to receive SSD benefits if you have worked in certain jobs and have a disability or illness that prevents you from doing the work you did before. This federal program provides benefits for people who have become too disabled to work or who have a long-term injury.

Do I need a Social Security Disability lawyer?

Applying for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits can be a frustrating process, because many applications for SSD benefits are denied. The reasons why cover a wide range. What matters most is making sure you receive SSD benefits you rightfully deserve. There are many legal issues that need to be addressed. And if there’s even the slightest error on your application, you will likely get denied. A lawyer can help you navigate the application process.

At O’Malley & Langan, our experienced Social Security Disability attorneys know how the system works and know the type of documentation that is necessary to get claims approved. We get results, which is why so many people throughout northeastern Pennsylvania contact us when they need help pursuing social security benefits or appealing a denied claim.

What health conditions qualify for Social Security Disability?

There is a wide range of medical conditions and mental disorders that qualify for benefits. Qualifying Social Security disability impairments include spinal injuries, migraines, severe anxiety, asthma, degenerative disc disease, depression, multiple sclerosis and schizophrenia. There needs to be a diagnosis from a doctor (or specialists) and other evidence that you suffer from the condition.

Why was my SSDI claim denied?

There are many reasons why a claim can be denied. It is often because of applications that are incomplete or have inaccurate information. For example, an applicant may have failed to provide complete medical records or work details. Reported income may not match W-2 tax forms. Or information about employment was incorrect.
